Have Star Wars fans found a spoiler in J.J. Abrams Instagram page?
As Star Wars fans continue to make Rian Johnson's life a living hell, J.J. Abrams tweeted a photo celebrating the wrap of filming on Episode IX today.
"It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX," he wrote on Twitter. "There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all."
Meanwhile, John Boyega shared the same image, writing "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."
The image itself is a sweet photo of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac embracing in a desert setting. It appears to just be a sentimental celebration of the last three movies and the years all these people spent working together.
But Star Wars fans think they've found some clues in the image. One pretty obvious one is this desert setting, which seems to hint that some of Star Wars IX takes place on Jakku, Rey's home planet, or even Tatooine, Luke Skywalker's home planet.
Either one would make for a nice full-circle for the franchise to end back where it began, looking off into a binary sunset.
Of course, considering the secrecy of Disney and the Star Wars production, this was likely a meticulously planned image that doesn't reveal any actual content from the real movie. I wouldn't be surprised if J.J. really shared an old image from the set of The Force Awakens. Disney is known to do sneakier shit to throw off fan detectives.
