Breaking Down the Duels – The Last Jedi

- Advertisement -

The throne room fight at the end of The Last Jedi is unique among Star Wars lightsaber battles because it’s not your traditional clash of Jedi vs. Sith. In fact, two lightsabers never even touch, so it’s less of a lightsaber duel and more of a brawl with all manner of dangerous sci-fi weapons.

As part of our ongoing series Star Wars: Breaking Down the Duels, IGN spoke with stunt coordinator Rob Inch, who choreographed the fight, and production designer Rick Heinrichs, who supervised the creation of the striking set. They shared insightful bits of trivia on how this exciting scene came together.
