Rian Johnson took to Instagram last night to share a picture of the post-production team for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and reveal that the film has now wrapped post-production, meaning that it is finished.
Johnson confirmed on Twitter that the film is finished:
The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15, 2017, and the world premiere will take place a week earlier on December 8. We’re under 100 days away from the premiere of the eighth installment of the Skywalker saga, and based on rumors we’re expected to get the second trailer sometime in early-to-mid October.
By all indications, it seems that Rian Johnson has done a terrific job with the movie. In a time where Lucasfilm has been through a lot of directing drama, Johnson has proven that a Star Wars movie can be made seamlessly. Rogue One, the untitled Han Solo movie, and the untitled Episode IX have all undergone extensive changes to the directing, and that was after The Force Awakens changed writers early in the process too. But The Last Jedi? It’s been smooth-sailing, and that’s a testament to Rian Johnson as much as anyone.
