John Boyega, one of the stars of Star Wars: Episode IX, has teased something “visually crazy” from the film’s set.
While Star Wars: Episode IX‘s December release date feels like a long way away, there is no question that the excitement and hype are starting to build for the film.
Doing his part to get fans pumped for what’s coming in the final instalment of the Skywalker saga, John Boyega (Finn) has posted a picture to his Instagram, teasing that he just witnessed something visually crazy on set.
Along with the image of his dirty hands, the actor wrote: “Great working day on set!! The whole team pushed themselves today to achieve something visually crazy! I’ve had many moments of shock on set but not like today and I can’t wait until you know why.”
Star Wars is known for its tremendous visuals and crazy set pieces so it’s probably safe to assume we can expect more of the same in Episode IX but it will be interesting to learn just what it was that Boyega was referring to.
Star Wars: Episode IX is set for release on December 20th 2019 with J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) directing a cast that includes Star Wars veterans Daisy Ridley (Rey), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Greg Grunberg (Snap Wexley), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) as well as new additions Naomi Ackie (Lady Mabeth), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), Matt Smith (Doctor Who) and Keri Russell (The Americans).
