Producer Stacey Sher announced on her Facebook page that finally, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," has wrapped after some 130 shooting days.

Here's what Sher wrote:

Well, we did it! At 1:23 AM, we wrapped up the extraordinary journey that has been the filming of Django Unchained. 126 (or 130 depending on who is doing the counting) of challenging, magical, incredible adventures from Simi Valley, to the Alabama Hills, to the frozen Grand Tetons, to the swamps and plantations of New Orleans and back to Simi Valley once again! It has been an honor to go on this epic journey with the greatest partners: My fellow producers, the unbelievably brilliant cast, the most inspiring and hardworking crew (not to mention the most fun) all brought together by the genius and imagination of QT! Post Production here we come! Django, we will never forget you.

It will be an epic post-production. He's under pressure to deliver a movie in order to make the Weinstein Company's December 25 release slot. Even some of the cast, on their brief press tour through Comic-Con, wondered if the film will open as scheduled.
