Star Wars Lightsaber Duel — Camera Movement in 'The Last Jedi' Battle [Director's Playbook]

The Last Jedi lightsaber duel is an excellent example of how an action scene can be both easy to follow and emotionally connected.

And there is perhaps no better example of a great lightsaber battle than the Throne Room scene in The Last Jedi.
