Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been very divisive with fans, and the aftermath has left a sour taste including harassments towards Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico. J.J. Abrams, who directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will have big shoes to fill once again for the last of the new trilogy. The director has announced that filming for Star Wars: Episode IX has wrapped, and he included a behind-the-scenes photo of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac doing a group hug.

The upcoming film in the new trilogy has finished with principal photography, and J.J. Abrams marked the occasion by sharing a photo of the three main characters. We see Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron.

The title for Star Wars: Episode IX still hasn’t been revealed yet, but fans can begin speculating on what’s happening in the photo. It’s definitely a desert background, so could it be Jakku, as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Or maybe it’s a visit to Tatooine?

“It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX,” Abrams said via his Twitter account. “There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all.”

With Star Wars Celebration being held in April in Chicago, IL, fans can expect more news and excitement. Perhaps John Boyega will be sharing Star Wars: Episode IX footage or maybe the teaser trailer since he did tease that we’ll hear more from him soon.

From John Boyega’s Instagram post:

“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. I personally want to thank @jjabramsofficial for giving me a chance to make my dreams come true

To our supporters…. See you SOON! May the force be with you.”
