Rian Johnson Shares “Day One” Pic From the Star Wars 8 Editing Bay

It was rumored that Star Wars Episode VIII already had a rough cut assembled, but according to a new Instagram share from the film’s Director, Rian Johnson, he’s just now beginning the editing process.

The image is of an editing bay, and the caption reads, “Day one!” so to me this is the first day of him and his editors actually stitching Star Wars Episode VIII together. Head on down below to check out the shot.

Day one!
