It was the end of an era for Oscar Isaac, who recently finished filming Star Wars: Episode IX, the last installment to the new Star Wars trilogy. But his big capper seemed almost overshadowed by one of his costars.

As Isaac told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s Tonight Show, his last day on set — the one memorialized with a photo of the three main leads — was also the last day for Anthony Daniels, the actor behind C-3PO.

“It was such a milestone,” he said. “What was particularly special was the day that I finished on these three massive movies that for me have been such a huge part of my life, right after it was like, ‘Okay, Oscar’s done.’ And then I said a few words. ‘And it’s also Anthony Daniels’ last day on set!’ Way to take the thunder.”

'Star Wars: Episode IX' Wraps Filming, J.J. Abrams Posts Emotional Cast Photo Lucasfilm It's a wrap on "Star Wars: Episode IX" — break out the tissues. Principal p hotography on the film has concluded, and to mark the occasion, director J.J. Abrams posted an emotional photo of the three lead actors: Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), and Oscar Isaac (Poe). They're embracing on a desert set, with crew members seen in the background: Boyega also posted the photo, tweeting, "That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people.

Star Wars : Episode IX began filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, with J.J. Abrams ( Star Wars : The Force Awakens , Star Trek ) returning to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio ( Argo , Justice League ).

Oscar Isaac has confirmed Star Wars : Episode IX will indeed bring an end to the Skywalker saga in the franchise. Nine stories. This is the culmination of the thing," Isaac said on The Today Show. "I think what J.J. [Abrams] has done, and really the whole Lucasfilm team, is going to be incredibly

According to Isaac, though, it was an emotional experience for both of them.

“[Daniels] was super emotional about it and hanging up the golden cowl,” the man behind Poe Dameron recalled. “And I think, really, and I mean this, this time he kept saying this was the most fun he’s had ’cause he had so many fun things to do and we got to work a lot together. It was just amazing to see that piece of history close.”

So we can look forward to some added banter between Poe and the gold-plated droid come Episode IX. But now Isaac can move onto other projects, like his latest for Netflix, Triple Frontier.

“It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX,” the film’s director J.J. Abrams tweeted as principal photography wrapped. “There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all.”

Star Wars: Episode IX will open in theaters this Dec. 20.

Ratings Tank for First 'Empire' Since Jussie Smollett Arrest.
"Empire" returned from its winter hiatus on Wednesday, airing its first original episode since star Jussie Smollett was arrested and charged with filing a false police report. It didn't fare well. Last night's 8 p.m. episode settled for a 1.3 demo rating/6 share among adults 18-49 and 4.412 million total viewers — those Nielsen numbers are way down from last year's comparable hour, and are down double digits versus the soap's fall finale. The previous original "Empire" episode, Dec. 5's fall finale, received a 1.5 demo rating and 5.043 million total viewers. Last year's midseason return put up a 2.0 rating and 6.217 million viewers.
