It has only been less than a week ago that the cast and crew to ‘Star Wars: Episode IX was announced and now we get our first set photo from director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek: Into Darkness and Super 8). We don’t really learn much from this photo except that we see that Finn played by John Boyega (Watership Down and Pacific Rim: Uprising) has gotten a new vest (which means new action figure to buy) along with Chewbacca in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
Abrams also tweeted out in his first tweet;
“Bittersweet starting this next chapter without Carrie, but thanks to an extraordinary cast and crew, we are ready to go. Grateful for @rianjohnson and special thanks to George Lucas for creating this incredible world and beginning a story of which we are lucky to be a part. #IX.”
This first set photo also announces the start of production to the final installment of the new Star Wars trilogy. ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ is set to open in theaters on December 20, 2019.
