As The Hollywood Reporter reveals, the cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode VII all attended a party at London’s Science Museum over the weekend to celebrate the completion of filming. Entertainment Weekly learned from sources close to the production that while the part was indeed a wrap party, there are still just a few more days of shooting until the epic post-production process begins.
Director J.J. Abrams and stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis and John Boyega all showed up along with other members of the cast and crew. Simon Pegg also attended the event, only further fueling speculation that the Star Trek actor may be involved with Star Wars as well. There was also at least one droid in attendance, as you can see thanks to Episode VII star John Boyega’s Instagram.
You can also witness Boyega hit the dance floor for DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s appropriately epic “Turn Down for What.”

Industry sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that the film wraps shooting today, which corroborates the mid-October report that, according to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Episode VII was just “three weeks off” from finishing principal photography in London’s Pinewood Studios.
Entertainment Weekly reports the party’s attendees received Episode VII baseball caps and a card from the producers that read:
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. 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.
Star Wars: Episode VII opens Dec. 18, 2015.
