Jigsaw

Trivia: The film is edited by Kevin Greutert, who edited "Saw" 1-5, and directed the sixth and seventh films. Greutert is one of only a few holdover crewmembers from the original run of the series to return. He said he felt an obligation to be a part of "Jigsaw"- feeling that given his past with the series, he should help usher the franchise into the new direction that the producers and writers wanted to take, while also helping to maintain ties to what came before.

Trivia: Major Spoilers: At the end of the film, pathologist Logan Nelson is revealed to be an apprentice of Jigsaw. Big fans of the series might have noticed on a second viewing that his character was very subtly alluded to being an apprentice, as he shares many common or similar traits with other secret apprentices in the series. Logan has a young daughter, just as Lawrence Gordon had a young daughter. Logan had taken part in a game and survived (albeit accidentally) as revealed in the end, just as Amanda Young had survived a test before joining Jigsaw. And Logan had lost someone close to him that served as a personal motivation (his wife), just as Mark Hoffman had lost his sister, which started him down the path towards becoming an apprentice.

Trivia: During production, rumors swirled that the film would be a "light reboot" that would only acknowledge the events of "Saw" I-III, while ignoring IV-VII. However, the film does contain several minor allusions to the later sequels, and co-writer Josh Stolberg later confirmed that the film does indeed follow all seven original films, even if it doesn't directly reference them.

Trivia: The film states that 10 years have passed since the death of John Kramer. Interestingly, the film was released almost exactly ten years to the day after "Saw IV"- a film which literally opens with the autopsy of John Kramer, confirming his apparent death at the end of "Saw III."

Trivia: For many months, the film was reportedly titled "Saw: Legacy." It wasn't until shortly before the first trailer was released that the film's official title, "Jigsaw", was revealed, with "Legacy" merely having been a working-title and code-name for the production.

Trivia: Minor Spoilers. When Eleanor reveals her "workshop" and shows Logan the "trap" reproductions she's created, among those that are visible are: the "Reverse Bear Trap" from the original "Saw", the "Angel" Trap from "Saw III", and the "Head Cube" from "Saw V." Other traps are also visible in the background.
