Star Wars: Episode IX wraps filming

Director JJ Abrams (The Force Awakens) announced last Friday that the final instalment of the Skywalker saga had finished filming in an emotional tweet that featured a photo of cast members Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) in a poignant embrace on set.

“It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on ‘Episode IX,’” Abrams said. “There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all.”

John Boyega, who plays Finn, a rogue First Order Stormtrooper who joined the Resistance in the sequel trilogy, also commemorated the occasion by sharing the same image to his followers on social media.

“That’s a wrap on ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for,” said Boyega in his tweet. “What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. J.J. thank you for making my dreams come true.”

Rumours suggest the teaser trailer and title will drop alongside Captain Marvel in March.

Star Wars: Episode IX will be in cinemas this December.
