Star Wars: Episode VIII has officially wrapped filming. Unsurprisingly, the cast and crew celebrated completing the filming of such an iconic, anticipated sequel in swanky style. The movie’s wrap party was held in the London Museum of Natural History, but of course the festivities didn’t end with the party’s gorgeous locale.
As our friends at i09 report, the party was kicked up a notch by booking a dance troupe called Boogie Storm. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s because they tore up the stage on Britain’s Got Talent this year. The group’s unique look and crisp dance moves wowed the judges so much that the chronically unimpressed Simon Cowell even gave the team the honor of the “Golden Buzzer” (which sends the act straight from their audition to the semi-finals). Ultimately, the group finished third in the competition. However, I think that performing for an actual Star Wars wrap party in front of the likes of Mark Hamill has made it easier for Boogie Storm to accept missing out on that first place title, don’t you?
Hamill posted a video of Boogie Storm bustin’ a Dark Side move on his Facebook, and it’s basically the best thing ever. Judging by the sounds of Hamill’s delighted laughter in the background, I think its safe to say Luke Skywalker officially approves of the dance troupe.
I don’t know about you, but watching stormtroopers dance to “Gangnam Style” and “Single Ladies” has filled a hole in my heart that I didn’t even know existed. Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.
We still are waiting on an official title to be released for Episode VIII, but with filming officially wrapped (and Star Wars Celebration Europe coming), it stands to reason we’ll get more info on the film soon. However, if this wrap party is any indication, the cast and crew have had a great time creating what will likely be another great installment in the franchise. The film hits theaters December 18, 2017, and it can’t get here soon enough!
