On November 1st, principal photography for Star Wars: Episode VII ended. What this means is the original cast, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, as well as the new cast, are official done filming their scenes. Now it is just a matter of working on the digital special effects, adding the musical score and the editing process. To celebrate the end of such a historic event in the Star Wars franchise, a wrap party for the cast and crew was held at the London Science Museum.
A thank you note, as well as a Star Wars Cast baseball cap, was given to each cast member for their participation:

(Although not officially in the cast, he is rumored to be in the movie. Pegg is good friends with Abrams and has been in Abrams’ Star Trek and Mission Impossible films. On top of that Simon Pegg is a huge Star Wars fan.)

Abrams and will reunite the original cast as well as new cast members to continue the Star Wars saga. Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to be released domestically on December 18th, 2015.
