Filming has begun on Star Wars Episode IX, and JJ Abrams had some thoughts he wanted to share with everyone to mark the occasion.

We can’t make out much from the image, but that is to be expected and was clearly the intent. A few things we can tell.

  • That appears to be John Boyega in the shot as Finn. Note he appears to be wearing a vest this time around.
  • Can’t make out who is in the seat.
  • From the angled portion in the front, placement of lights, this appears to be the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.

And, of course, we should acknowledge that the tweet and the image is all about acknowledging the passing of Carrie Fisher while also thanking George Lucas & Rian Johnson.

This is only day one, folks. Expect lots of slow leaks and teases in the coming months.
