It's only been a few days since director J.J. Abrams let everyone know filming had wrapped on Star Wars: Episode IX. However, several official Star Wars Twitters are teasing something new on the horizon.
The Star Wars UK Twitter tweeted, "The calm before the galactic storm..." and a GIF combining a scene from Revenge of the Sith with one from A New Hope. The scene features Han Solo and Anakin Skywalker saying, "this is where the fun begins." It's about as vague a tease as one can get, but it does seem to imply something is coming, especially since the Dutch and French Twitter accounts tweeted the same message within a few hours.

Lucasfilm has been pretty silent on the subject of Star Wars: Episode IX. The film's closely guarded production has been under intense scrutiny from the public with numerous rumors and theories stemming from the tiniest details concerning cast, plot and even the mysterious title, which has thus far been unreleased. Although there have been rumors, it's currently unknown when the trailer for that will drop, and it's also unclear if that's what is being teased here.

Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E.
