"Star Wars: Episode VIII," which has yet to reveal its full title, has officially wrapped filming. Apparently the dance Force was strong at the wrap party, 'cause Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) shared this clip of performers:
They can't shoot, but they sure can shimmy! Hamill also shared a more serious goodbye post, and since he has the ultimate dream job, he probably wasn't exaggerating to say he had the time of his life:We didn't immediately jump on the "had," but this comment (with more than 365 "likes") now has us nervous:
Dariush Nassrollahzadeh "Saying goodbye is hard when you've had the time of your life." Goodbye? HAD? R.I.P. Luke?
No! He's just saying goodbye to the cast and crew, right? For now?
Mark Hamill was not the only one to say goodbye (for now). Daisy Ridley (Rey) also shared a post honoring the journey:
OK, but now we're reading into everything. Why is her heart brimming? Rey out?
John Boyega (Finn) also got in on the action, sharing his own heartfelt goodbye, and thanks:
At home buzz before the wrap party! Another chapter done. Although this is the second time it still feels surreal being involved in such a life changing project. As I go onto other movies I take with me great memories! #Oneisfeelingonesself P.S. To everyone that has supported me since attack the block I thank you for encouraging me! This new life is tricky to take in but it's always nice to have people route for you. LOVE!❤️
OK, but "as I go on to other movies" -- is he just talking about in the break until they start filming Episode IX?
Pardon our tinfoil hats, this should be a time of excitement and celebration, since it means we're one step closer to seeing the follow-up to "The Force Awakens."
"Star Wars: Episode VIII" -- directed by Rian Johnson and co-starring Carrie Fisher,Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and more -- is scheduled for release on December 15th, 2017.
