With barely any spoilers getting out, J.J. Abrams and the rest of the crew have officially wrapped up filming on the much-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII. As a parting gift, each member of the cast and crew was given a free hat and a special note. One of these was shared by crew member James Rose via Twitter. If you get easily choked up, prepare for maximum feels.

The note

For those of you who have trouble seeing it, the letter says:

To the Extrordinary Cast and Crew of Episode VII:
It is a true honor and absolute joy to come to set every day and work alongside each of you. Your professionalism, passion and patience is more deeply appreciated than we could ever express. 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. Our ambition here is large, of course, and it must be: 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. How lovely it would be if you had, in addition to your name on the screen, some actual, real, tangible proof that you were a part of it! Here, then, is that proof. Wear it well, wear it healthily, wear it proudly. But, mostly, thank you.

Among the names signed at the bottom are director J.J. Abrams and producers Kathleen Kennedy and Bryan Burk. The amount of sincerity put into this letter is a clear indication of how much sincerity was put into the film. Plus, who doesn't love a free hat?

The trailer for [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) is rumored to come out this December, and the film itself is set for release on December 18, 2015.
