That's a warp! Star Wars: Episode VIII is finally done shooting. Though there will be additional pick-up days later in the year, director Rian Johnson announced via Facebook that the eighth chapter in the Skywaker saga is officially in the can. Now, the post-production process starts on this follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Johnson shared a very quick video from set teasing the final slate along with the movie's final shot, which you can see below. Here's what Rian had to say.

"Final slate of the final shot. VIII is officially wrapped. Thanks to the best cast and crew in the galaxy, and thanks to the fans for all the love and support though the whole process. Cannot wait to put it together and share it with you all!"

Mark Hamill Teases Daisy Ridley's Jedi Training in 'Star Wars 8' Set Photo

11 April 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Luke is the Master now! And when it comes to Rey, he's going to ride her pretty hard. While it hasn't been revealed that Rey is Luke's Padawan learner in Star Wars: Episode VIII, actor Mark Hamill is teasing the intense character relationship between these two in a new photo from outside the Star Wars: Episode VIII set. And it's obvious the pair are having quite a lot of fun.

A few days ago, Mark Hamill promised he'd be sharing a special Jedi treat in honor of co-star Daisy Ridley's birthday. Unlike his cute joke on April Fools' Day, he came through like a champ with a photo that is sure to put a smile on your face. And it's amazing the way he's able to visually transform himself into Yoda's doppleganger without any make-up or CGI effects. You can see the image below, which Mark Hamill shared on his Twitter page. »

Mark Hamill Shares Selfie from 'Star Wars 8' Set

24 February 2016 11:24 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that we've all seen Luke Skywalker at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, actor Mark Hamill no longer has to keep himself hidden. Today, he's posted a selfie direct from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII, showing off his bearded look along with the official working title logo Star Wars: Space Bear. He claims to have a first look at one of the new aliens in this impending sequel. But alas, it's only his daughter's dog.

Carrie Fisher revealed a similar photo from the Star Wars: Episode VIII set last week. Showing off her dog Gary Fisher, the iconic actress revealed the secret working title of the movie and its unique logo. It's unclear if Carrie Fisher did this on accident, but now that the bear is out of the bag, so to speak, it seems that other cast members aren't shying away from showing off the secretive title. »

Production on Star Wars: Episode VIII has officially begun, as a new - and spoiler-y - video confirms. Plus! Laura Dern's among the cast...
