It’s been a long time coming for Star Wars fans, but the hard work has paid off for the cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode VII. They’re done! It’s a wrap! J.J. Abrams posted a thank you note that went out to the entire cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode VII as principal photography for the sci-fi epic is officially done. Now, it’s time for editing, music and special effects work. But first… it’s time to party!
Star John Boyega posted a pic from the party, and we’ve also got a shot of the note that went out to everyone.
To the Extraordinary Cast and Crew of Episode VII:
It is a true honor and absolute joy to come to set every day and work alongside each of you. Your professionalism, passion and patience is more deeply appreciated than we could ever express. From the deserts of Abu Dhabi, to the Forest of Dean, to the stages of Pinewood, you have risen to every challenge and been as wonderfully kind as you are brilliantly talented. Our ambition here is large, of course, and it must be: we are here to make a film that entertains millions of people, of all ages, for generations. To create an experience people will cherish watching as much as we will cherish having made it, together. How lovely it would be if you had, in addition to your name on the screen, some actual real tangible proof that you were part of it! Here, then, is that proof. Wear it well, wear it healthily, wear it proudly. But, mostly, thank you.
With Love, JJ Abrams Kathleen Kennedy Bryan Burke
We love the part about how JJ says “how lovely it would be if you had… some actual real tangible proof that you were part of it! Here, then, is that proof.”
So, a note is proof?! Gotta love that man’s sense of humor.
