Actor John Boyega posted this amazing video Thursday of how the cast and crew celebrated the end of filming.

"This is how we ended Star Wars episode 7," he wrote. "Honestly amazing to be a part of this amazing movie that has touched so many people over the years. Big thank you to everyone!"

The new Star Wars film picks up three decades after the Return of the Jedi, and stars trilogy originals Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. Notable new cast members include Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o and Girls star Adam Driver.

"I can tell you that I'm going to a galaxy far, far away," Lupita joked at the Maui Film Festival in June, remaining coy about the details of her exciting new role. 

The Force Awakens is set to hit theaters Dec. 18, 2015.
