    Whatever you might think of Lucas and the prequel movies themselves, it was a bold move at the time to shoot AOTC completely digital and he got criticized by some for it. 16 years later, we're seeing a major shift with technological advancements in Red HD and Arri Alexa cameras. A lot of major filmmakers and cinematographers have gone digital already.

    I believe a filmmaker should stick to what they prefer and what they're comfortable with and Abrams will likely stick with 35mm for Episode IX. For me, it just seems like a lot of these directors are just delaying the inevitable.

    Well, Rogue One was shot digitally, and I'm pretty sure Solo is as well.

    Yes, both of them were. And, since this thread is based on a false premise, locking.
