    The time has come as Star Wars: Episode IX, what StarWars.com is calling 'the final installment of the Skywalker Saga' begins filming today. The tweets have already started rolling in from the cast and crew as they get ready to set out on their new adventure together. Second unit director Vic Mahoney gives us a glimpse at some scenery, John Boyega (Finn) sports a new hairdo as he welcomes a new cast member, and Mark Hamill shares his bittersweet feelings about filming a Star Wars without his on-screen sister and real-life friend, Carrie Fisher.





    Vic Mahoney expresses her excitement about working on the new project and gives us a glimpse of the surrounding area. Could this be near the Cardington Airship Sheds filming location (which we reported last month)?

    For comparison, here is a photo shared by  Star Wars fan and English airship historian, Trevor Monk, on Facebook of the scenery near Cardington Sheds:

    Boyega also gives a warm welcome to new cast member Naomi Ackie while giving us a close-up shot of his new hairstyle:










    A word from the only actor to appear in every single Star Wars movie:










    Richard E. Grant tweets about his excitement as well:










    Mark Hamill expresses his bittersweet feelings about doing a Star Wars movie without Carrie Fisher:








    Lastly, John Boyega has a little fun perpetuating the 'Finn is Luke's son' rumor from a few years ago.











    We can probably expect some kind of official announcement about the start of filming later today like JJ did with The Force Awakens. Perhaps there will be something on The Star Wars Show later today as well? We will find out soon.







    UPDATE



    And there it is! J. J. Abrams has taken to his previously dormant official Twitter account to announce the start of filming for Episode IX!








    And Rian Johnson responds:








    The photo is way less cryptic than previous Abrams' posts as we clearly see filming of the Millennium Falcon cockpit with John Boyega's Finn (wearing a new vest/jacket?), Chewbacca, and who we assume is Daisy Ridley's Rey in the Captain's chair. Boyega did reveal at Awesome-Con that Rey and Finn would be back together in Episode IX, and it appears some of their time together will be spent on our favorite hunk of junk in the galaxy!
