My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this. I watched the 1978 “Making of Star Wars” many times as a kid and read up on lots of Star Wars books and this covered many things I’d never even heard of. I still found myself remembering little trivia tidbits about what went into a scene but I don’t think any commentary/documentary could be exhaustive by any means.
The overlays and comparisons of various scenes (Obi-wan at power station with and without painting, for example) were nicely done. One thing my wife and I especially liked was that the commentary was from members of the cast and crew and not just a George Lucas monologue. That in itself was a pleasure.
