Principal Photography Wraps in New Orleans

Filming is wrapping up on the Ender's Game movie this weekend and most of the cast has already left New Orleans and headed home, the younger members creating a wave of Twitter sadness as they took a few moments to send heartfelt messages and farewells to their fellow castmates.

Some of the most memorable:
Khylin Rhambo: I'll cherish this experience forever I can truly say I've become a better person through this experience love you all #EndersGame

Hailee Steinfeld:  Congratulations to my Enders Game cast for wrapping today. So proud of you all & love you guys so much! XO

Asa Butterfield: Farewell to @AramisKnight88 @KhyRhambo and @surajpartha . It's been one helluva ride.

Aramis Knight: Already missing @asabfb @KhyRhambo @HaileeSteinfeld @surajpartha @Gwarren333 Gavin,Conor,Michael,PayPay,Loxie..the list goes on #Endersgame
Not only the members of Ender's jeesh have packed their bags: it appears Harrison Ford has also left the Ender's Game set, as it's been reported by several local news sources in Macon, Georgia that he's in town to start working on his next project, the Jackie Robinson biography 42.

To celebrate the wrap, TomKats catering created some fun ice sculptures for the cast and crew in New Orleans:

Lovely, right? It seems they were quite the attraction as many of the cast and crew members who were still on set yesterday couldn't help but dig out their phones and take a picture.

Any word on how long they lasted?


While the movie's transition to post-production is hugely exciting for fans of the project, it's also very bittersweet. When filming began back in February, the summer seemed ages away! Yet, here we are, 106 days later, and the Ender's Game movie has officially been filmed. Which of us believed a year ago that we would ever see this day?

Here's a look back to February and the first cast party:

It's only been 3 months, but they all look younger there, somehow. Even Gavin. ;)

Ender's Game is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters November 1, 2013.
