The Star Wars: Episode VII team descended upon London's Science Museum en masse Saturday night for a huge celebration many have speculated could be the film's wrap party.

J.J. Abrams, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis and John Boyega were all in attendance, with Boyega posting several images and videos onto Instagram of him with his co-stars. One showed him dancing to Stevie Wonder's Superstition with Ridley, while another saw him next to R2-D2, captioned "home time buddy." Regular Abrams collaborator Simon Pegg was also at the event, leading to further rumors that the actor-director could have landed himself a part in the film.

Speaking on Oct. 16 at the opening of the London office for Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said the Star Wars shoot in London's Pinewood studios was just "three weeks off" completion, while industry sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Nov. 3 was the last day of production.

A note signed by Kennedy, Abrams and producer Bryan Burk that was photographed and posted on Twitter thanked the cast and crew for their participation in Star Wars: Episode VII's production.

"We are here to make a film that entertains millions of people, of all ages, for generations. To create an experience people will cherish watching as much as we will cherish having made it, together," it read.

"From the deserts of Abu Dhabi, to the Forest of Dean, to the stages of Pinewood, you have risen to every challenge and been as wonderfully kind as you are brilliantly talented," it continued.

According to an insider speaking to THR but unconfirmed by Pinewood, the production for the next as-yet-untitled James Bond film is due to move into the space previously occupied by Star Wars: Episode VII.
