John Boyega and ‘Star Wars’ cast celebrate at wrap party
The Force will always be with John Boyega and company.
On Saturday, the 26-year-old actor shared an inside look at the wrap party for “Star Wars: Episode IX,” which included a jam session to Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.”
Boyega, who plays Finn in the franchise, posted an emotional message Friday on social media.
“That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. I personally want to thank @jjabramsofficial for giving me a chance to make my dreams come true,” he wrote.
Fellow “Star Wars” actor Joonas Suotamo, 32, known for his role as Chewbacca in the saga, also shared a sweet video featuring Boyega.
“Joonas, this is a personal, and rather public message about how much I’m going to miss you, man. I’m going to miss you so much. I’m going to cry for 30 days and 30 nights. And there’s going to be no food, it’s just going to be bread and water. I’m going to cry my tears so hard, man, my brain is probably going to come out of my ears,” Boyega said in the clip.
After filming officially wrapped, director J.J. Abrams shared a photo of Boyega and co-stars Daisy Ridley and Oscar Issac.
“It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX. There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all,” Abrams penned Friday.
“Star Wars: Episode IX” will be released on December 20.
