Weekend Headlines | Star Wars News

Star Wars fans can now start to officially get excited about learning something, anything, about Star Wars: Episode IX, as director J.J. Abrams has taken to Twitter to announce that filming has officially wrapped:

"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."

Abrams made the announcement via Twitter, and included a brand new photo of the Sequel Trilogies principal trio (Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac) in a poignant embrace. Since this is the first real look at Episode IX's lead characters (Rey, Finn, Poe), fans well no doubt be combing over every detail of the setting and costumes, looking for clues. Still, the biggest clue of all will now (hopefully) be coming soon: the official title of Episode IX! A recent rumor also pointed to Episode IX footage already being shipped to theaters. 

That rumor suddenly seems much more credible, now...
