Just under three months out from its release, Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is officially complete.
The film’s writer-director Rian Johnson took to Instagram today to confirm that the eighth chapter in the Star Wars Saga has officially wrapped post-production.
While there may still be some final tweaks to music or VFX, the work is essentially complete. Now comes the publicity campaign and tour for everyone involved with the next big step being the film’s second trailer which is rumored to be launching on October 9th.
In related news, though not unsurprising, actor and filmmaker Andy Serkis spoke about his time working on the film as the villain Supreme Leader Snoke and confirmed he doesn’t share any scenes with the late Carrie Fisher in the movie. He tells The List:
“I had no scenes with Carrie but I did get to know her a little bit. She was an incredible human being with a wonderful personality and she’s sadly, sadly missed and everyone who came into contact with her was really touched by her great energy and great sense of humor. She is a wonderful person and I did have a great time working with the cast and Adam Driver and Domhnall Gleeson, we’ve had some really great times on it.”
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in cinemas worldwide on December 15th.
