Over the weekend, J.J. Abrams announced Star Wars: Episode IX had officially wrapped. The post was an emotional one, which included an on-set photograph of Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) in one hell of an emotional hug.
On Instagram, Boyega re-posted the photo and shared that he “couldn’t be more thankful” for the opportunity.
“It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people,” he added.
The wrap party, on the other hand, had a completely different vibe.
Episode IX is the final instalment in the latest trilogy so – as you can imagine – the cast and crew went hard.
There was an actual human disco ball, servers decked out in elaborate costumes, trees, and a shit ton of food. Naturally, the cast and crew uploaded snippets of the extra as hell rager to social media. And like clockwork, the fan accounts have saved them all for your viewing pleasure.
But first, get a load of Boyega belting out Vanessa Carlton‘s A Thousand Miles.
“I blame @terrycrews for this,” he captioned the video.

Not going to lie, this party looked insane.
Look at this.
We weren’t kidding about that human disco ball.
Not to mention this bloody DJ.

Boyega is drunk/10 and all of us at the end of a big one.
Here he is telling Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca) how much he loves him.
Star Wars: Episode IX will fly into cinemas this December.
According to howmanydaysuntilstarwars.com, that’s 304 days and roughly five more hours to go.
