Episode IX: There is No Adequate Way to Thank This Truly Magical Crew and Cast. I’m Forever Indebted to You All.

It’s a beautiful photo. And I’m really digging all their costumes, especially their hair. I love Rey’s buns. Similar to the old one’s but still new. Almost like Leia buns.

Wish there was a way to do a poll on this site.

Do we think that’s:
A. Jakku
B. Tatooine
C. Jedha
D. Some new desert planet

Most likely it’s Jakku, but it could possibly be Tatooine. I don’t know how Tatooine could make its way into the sequel trilogy, though. What country was this wrap up picture taken? Tatooine was shot in Tunisia, Jakku was filmed in Abu Dhabi.

Jordan, which is why one of the options is Jedha.

Were the scenes on Jedha in Rogue One shot in Jordan?

Yes, in Wadi Rum, which I believe is the same place IX shot.

It would probably make since to go to Jedha. It’s a planet that is known for its history with the Jedi, and Rey is possibly going there to learn more about their history, or something. It seems like the final scene that was filmed involved something between Rey, Finn, and Poe. Is it possible that reshoots have been scheduled?

FYI this photo is from way earlier in production. Both Daisy and Adam Driver’s make up artists also posted today about wrapping at Pinewood. So both Daisy and Adam filmed today. It’s possible John Boyega and Oscar Isaac did too, but there is also no indication either way on that I believe.

To add to the Jordan speculation. Honestly a part of me thinks it is a new planet, because the background aliens that we’ve scene in other leaks don’t really match the look of the other planets’ citizens. But since JJ has already done a new desert planet, I like to think he would want to immediately do another new desert planet, and that going to a desert planet in this movie is significant in some way.

If I had to guess between the familiar worlds, I would have to go with Jedha. I mean, it’s the same filming location, the leaked background would fit in as Jedha denizens more than the people on Jakku or Tatooine. And personally I think it would be cool to see a planet that has a chunk blown out of it.

Man, Oscar crying making me oddly emotional.

Same here. There’s probably nothing quite like being on the set of a Star Wars film. And this is a major chapter in their lives that has ended, at least for now.

JEDIT:RogueLeader, you buzzkill! 😛

John Boyega wrapped as well today…

https://twitter.com/JohnBoyega/status/1096502278155108357 - ‘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. JJ thank you for making my dreams come true.’

Along with the same picture JJ posted earlier.

I’d be up for a Sam J. Jones cameo. He still looks like he could throw Klytus onto those spikes. 😉

John Boyega apparently got more positive responses to his tweet than J.J. Abrams did from people.

I hope it’s Jedha; it probably won’t be… though would be cool to see it again after what happened there in Rogue One.

 


 

On the wrap side of things today for IX it’s worth giving https://twitter.com/sleemo_ (or https://sleemo.com/) a visit - has some great updates, really knows her stuff and has some quality detective skills.

Seems John Boyega got a few wrap goodies, the one from Kathleen Kennedy looks superb (and the box it came in too) 😃

I’d put money on not only it being Jakku, but someone will say something like “Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku” to wink at the audience.

Maybe more than one planet?

Definitely not Jedha after what happened to it in RO. Also, filming locations mean nothing. Visually they’re all interchangeable, a fact proven by RotJ shooting its Tatooine scenes in California.

My money’s on a new planet or Jakku, but Tatooine’s certainly possible.

Jedha wasn’t completely destroyed. Also, filming locations don’t “mean nothing.” Sometimes they can, obviously - these are movies and it’s very easy to change and fudge things. And the fact that it’s the same spot could just mean that LFL is familiar with it and there are logistics behind the decision.

But, still, it’s the same spot, which could mean something. You mention ROTJ shot Tatooine scenes in California, which proves nothing about your point at all, because ANH shot some scenes in California for Tatooine too.
