Richard E. Grant Gives Details About the Secrecy Behind STAR WARS: EPISODE IX

Star Wars: Episode IX is one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2019. It will be the end of the Skywalker saga (or so we’re told) and I’m very interested in seeing how everything gets tied up. Well, don’t expect too many leaks before the film is released as Lucasfilm seems to be taking security up to a new level. Richard E. Grant is a newcomer to the series and while no one knows what his role is, he recently sat down and talked about how secretive everything is on the set. From crimson red pages to wearing cloaks walking around the studio, it sounds freaking intense.

It’s extraordinary. They don’t give you a script, you have to go to a room where there are bodyguards outside, closed-circuit television cameras, and it’s printed on crimson pages so you can’t photograph it. You have to read it in there, and then leave.

You’re given the pages on the day that you work, and you have to sign for them and sign out for them as well. There are security guards on the set.

They give you a cloak, over your head – because apparently they have drones going over Pinewood Studios so they try and take photographs of what people are playing.

Like I said, don’t expect any leaks. I would imagine that Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo wouldn’t be very welcome on these sets right now with their track records. What do you think of these measures to maintain secrecy, too much, not enough, or just right? Sometimes I wonder if these secrecy measures are responsible for fans not feeling satisfied.

Episode IX is set to release on December 20, 2019.
