With principal photography on Episode IX expected to wrap up next month, some people are already coming to an end of their work on the film. With that, and the holiday gifting season a very recent memory, various members of the Episode IX crew are reporting receiving gifts.
Hanna Treharne, a model maker on the film, shared a post on Instagram as few days ago showing what she got. The Episode IX logo bag contained a crew jacket, Bad Robot logo t-shirt, and additional tee. The thank you note (all in capitals) said….
DEAR CAST AND CREW OF EPISODE IX:
THERE ARE NO WORDS TO PROPERLY EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE AND AMAZEMENT – YOUR WORK HAS BEEN NEXT-LEVEL SPECTACULAR, AND YOU’VE DONE IT ALL WITH KINDNESS AND RESPECT. THERE ARE, NO WORDS BUT THERE ARE ARE JACKETS! XO JJ, KATHY, MICHELLE + CALLUM
It is signed off by J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan (Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Super 8), and Callum Greene (Crimson Peak, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Pacific Rim).

It’ll all be clear in December and all NDAs aside I really know nothing more apart from they’re are one of the coolest gifts I’ve ever received!
More as we get it!
