It appears that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has officially wrapped post-production with plenty of time to spare.
With nearly three months left to go before the film hits theaters, Rian Johnson announced via his Instagram account on Friday that the film is officially done.
Just think… everyone in this photo has seen the finished film and you still have to wait three months.
Compared with all of the other dramas that have surrounded Star Wars films this year, Disney and Lucasfilm have to be relieved that this one is in the can. With Ron Howard still at work on the untitled Han Solo film and J.J. Abrams brought in to take over Episode IX, everyone has to be relieved this one seems to have gone off without a hitch.
With the film completed, the elephant in the room now has been whether or not we will see another trailer before the release. So far we have only seen one teaser, and then everything went quiet. Some have suggested we don’t need another one, but there is no way that Disney is going to let a major film such as this exist on a lone teaser released months ago.
Adding fuel to the fire, Luke Skywalker himself – Mark Hmmill – tweeted, and then deleted, that everyone should pay attention to Monday Night Football on Oct. 9. That feels like a safe date to us to mark on your calendars.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit theaters on Dec. 15.
