J.J. Abrams posts the first on-set pic from Star Wars: Episode IX

Director J.J. Abrams has posted the first pic from the set of Star Wars: Episode IX, with a lovely tribute to Carrie Fisher. It’s hard to see, but it shows Finn (John Boyega) and the camera which has VII IX on it. (Abrams also directed the seventh film Star Wars: The Force Awakens). You can check out his tweet and the pic below.

The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson responded with this fantastic GIF.

The cast for Star Wars: Episode IX was recently announced and includes Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billie Lourd will also reprise their roles in the film. New cast members include Keri Russell, Naomi Ackie and Richard Grant. Billy Dee Williams will return to play Lando Calrissian and Fisher will appear as General Leia, using footage that was left over from The Force Awakens.

Star Wars: Episode IX will hit theaters on December 20, 2019. Are you guys excited for the film? What are your feelings on Carrie Fisher returning via footage? Any theories on what we’ll see? Let us know in the comments.
