It’s 1 August 2018 – and that means J.J. Abrams has started shooting Star Wars Episode IX. Above is the first-ever image released – and it looks a bit like the Millennium Falcon. I could be wrong though.
Abrams announced the shooting of the latest Star Wars movie in a tweet which included the below caption and the above image.
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
