At this point we really don't know much about the next instalment in the Star Wars saga. Apart from the cast and the release date (Dec. 20, 2019) Episode IX is still very much shrouded in mystery. But John Boyega just gave us a tiny sneak peek from the set of Episode IX. Boyega shared a photo on Instagram showing his hands after a day of shooting. Along with the photo, Boyega wrote a pretty teasing caption. SEE ALSO: 10 movies we can't wait for in 2019 "Great working day on set," Boyega wrote. "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." Boyega added the hashtag #FN2187, referring to the name Boyega's character in Star Wars, now known as Finn, answered to when he served as a stormtrooper in the First Order. > View this post on Instagram > > Great working day on set!!
