Saying goodbye is hard when you've had the time of your life. I can't thank the cast and crew enough, I couldn't have done it without you. Loads of love, mh #StarWars #EpVIII #WrapParty 📷: @chelseahamill

While Ridley and Hamill can now take a well-deserved break, director Rian Johnson will be busying himself with post-production over the next several months. We may get a few more details on what he has in store for us this weekend though, as he's due to appear on the 'Future Filmmakers' panel at Star Wars Celebration. 

Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Benicio del Toro, Star Wars: Episode 8 opens in cinemas on December 15, 2017.
