It’s over, folks. Director J.J. Abrams sent out the tweet embedded below a short time ago featuring an image of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac embracing on set (click for a larger view) to announce that principal photography for Episode IX has been completed. Filming for the currently-untitled Episode IX kicked off back on August 1.
Principal photography for the film was expected to last into February ahead of its December 2019 theatrical release.
Now for that official title reveal…
It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX. There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all. pic.twitter.com/138AprtFuZ

John Boyega also tweeted out the same photo from his Twitter account.
That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. JJ thank you for making my dreams come true. pic.twitter.com/8b83vQKKDc
