Rian Johnson Shares Instagram Teasers to Celebrate Wrapping Star Wars: Episode VIII
That's it. Production on Star Wars: Episode VIII has finally wrapped, and before the film undergoes months of lengthy post-production work (and, dare we say, reshoots), Rian Johnson celebrated the milestone with a bit of a social media binge. There won't be much rest for the film's director, who has just a few days before he'll be on stage at Star Wars Celebration London. As we've come to expect, though, Johnson has spent his time well, taking to social media to reveal a number of mysterious teaser shots from across the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, and even a creepy face-swap with one of the movie's stars.

First up is a shot of the Millennium Falcon's Dejarik board.


Next, and slightly more mysteriously is this close up shot of a beautifully worn and textured...something. If I had to guess, this is probably a close up of one of the Falcon's walls or seats.



This might not be Star Wars related, but I like to imagine that this means Morgan Freeman will be narrating Episode VIII.

Johnson wasn't the only one to celebrate the big wrap with their social media followers. Mark Hamill announced the wrap with an emotional tweet about how close he's come to the cast, which would seem to suggest he's a great deal more involved in 8 than he was in 7, not that that's saying much.

John Boyega got in on the action, too.

Done!

Next up for the Star Wars: Episode VIII cast is likely to be a busy weekend of on-stage appearances and autograph signings at Star Wars Celebration. We're hoping that this weekend won't just bring a new Rogue One trailer, but also a title for Rian Johnson's movie, and maybe even a some teaser footage or images.

Star Wars: Episode VIII is released on December 15th 2017
