Consider this a PSA

There’s been a swirl of rumors in recent weeks that Star Wars: The Last Jedi would have a post-credits scene.

Here’s a quick public service announcement: It doesn’t.

Last week, various fan blogs and websites reported that The Last Jedi would include a post-credits scene, a là Marvel, dedicated to Lucasfilm’s next movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story. It was a questionable rumor to begin with, considering that Lucasfilm has never included a post-credits scene in a Star Wars movie before.

Still, people are antsy to see the first footage of Lucasfilm’s young Han Solo movie. Considering Solo is slated to be released on May 25, 2018 — almost five months from now — it does make sense that we’d get our first look around now.

Still, while The Last Jedi does not have a post-credits scene, it’s worth waiting around for a couple of minutes after the scrolling text appears on screen. There’s a beautiful tribute to Carrie Fisher, who plays General Leia Organa and died last year, just after the main cast credits finish.

Unlike Marvel movies, however, you won’t have to sit around an additional five minutes after that to watch another scene, worried you might miss a key piece of connecting tissue between this movie and the next in the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now in theaters.
