Star Wars 7 Almost Finished, Phasma Image, New TV Spot, 1st Clip and Hamill in Episode 8

More tidbits about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To start the image of Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) is care of Empire Magazine. Next during a Q&A with Stephen Colbert, director JJ Abrams indicated the movie is almost complete saying "We were working on the final mixes at 2:30 this morning. I left with six very small, but important things that (still) need to be done..." He can't wait to be finished with it saying “The truth is working on this movie for nearly three years, it has been like living with the greatest roommate in history for too long. It’s time for him to get his own place. It’s been great and I can’t tell you how much I want him to get out into the world and meet other people because we know each other really well. But really, ‘Star Wars’ is bigger than all of us. So I’m thrilled beyond words (to be involved) and terrified more than I can say.”

Mark Hamill has officially verified he is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (yeah believe it or not that fact has never actually been confirmed, just assumed) and he is in Star Wars 8 via a tweet, "Last shaved on 10/22 after final day of my 2nd #TheFlash (which airs 12/8 #XmasTrix), just in time for Ep VIII-whew! https://t.co/UNsPDaqFT2". Finally below is the first clip and another TV spot for the film.
