It’s been a while since the filming of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” wrapped. However, the post production work still continues. Director Rian Johnson and Music Composer John Williams teased a video from the studio. Meanwhile, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed changes to “Episode 9” after Carrie Fisher passed away.

May the 4th is celebrated across the globe as Star Wars Day. On this day, fans of the franchise wish each other by saying May the 4th be with you, which is a pun on the popular dialogue “May the Force be with you.” The dialogue is mostly said by the Jedi as a way of wishing a friend’s well being and success.

In the short video [see below], Johnson can be seen working with Williams on the upcoming sequel. The music composer wished all the fans by saying “May the 4th be with you.” The two were taking a break to make the video, and quickly got back to work.

With Williams present in the studio, the duo appear to be adding the music to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” So, the post production phase appears to be in its last leg, with only thing remaining is for the director to come out with a cut of the film. The final cut may be decided after executives from Disney watch it.

The fans have already gotten a teaser of what’s to come. The teaser released during the Celebrations event showed some events of the past, and built more anticipation for the excited fans.

Carrie Fisher (Leia) finished filming all her scenes for the sequel. While this means that reshoots will not be necessary for this film, her passing has made it necessary for the filmmakers to make drastic changes to the story in the finale, to account for her absence. Lucasfilm has already said that they will not be digitally creating the actress, the way they did for “Rogue One.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kennedy confirmed that they had to start over “Episode 9.” The producer did not give away any details about how Leia’s storyline will be affected, and what changes they have planned.

Kennedy assured that Fisher’s work for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is complete, and also said that the fans will get to see a lot of her in the film. This, however, will sadly be the last film the actress will be seen in.
