Star Wars: Episode IX is filming right now, and actor John Boyega--who plays Finn--has teased something "visually crazy" for the much-anticipated sci-fi film.
Boyega shared a cryptic image on his Instagram page of his distressed hands after a day of shooting. The caption of the image reads, "The whole team pushed themselves today to achieve something visually crazy! I've had many moments of shock on set but not like today and I can't wait until you know why."

It's intriguing to think about what Boyega might be referring to. The Star Wars franchise is known for its spectacle over-the-top sequences, and we can only imagine what Episode IX will deliver in this department.
Episode IX hits theatres this December. It is the third and final instalment in the new trilogy that started with 2015's The Force Awakens. The movie was set to be directed by Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow, but he was fired and replaced by JJ Abrams, who directed The Force Awakens.
Lost and Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan will play an unspecified role in Episode XI.
In other Star Wars news, EA has reportedly canceled a new open-world Star Wars game in development at EA Vancouver. However, the company says it remains "fully committed" to making more Star Wars games in the future.
