It’s been a long time coming, but the first image from Jay & Silent Bob Reboot has officially arrived.

Smith shared the photo on Instagram and said that the shoot has now entered its second week. The photo he shared depicts himself and Jason Mewes as the title characters, who are setting off on a trip to stop the creation of a Bluntman and Chronic reboot.

SNOOGANS! Here’s a first look at @jayandsilentbobreboot, courtesy of our genius @dpronlevy and our master stills artist @kylebonokaplan. On this adventure, Silent Bob’s dressed pretty much the same as he’s been in #Dogma through #clerks2, but Jay’s outfit has changed a bit, including his Ranger Danger t-shirt designed by @captain_ribman (the artist who created my Fat Man logo). Years back when I was working on Clerks III, Ribman and I came up with a slew of Ranger Danger comic covers to flesh out the world of the flick and make it seem like Ranger Danger had been around as long as Superman and the Fantastic Four. When Clerks III went away, the artwork sat dormant on my laptop for years. But when Reboot started taking serious shape, I blew the dust off the Ranger Danger artwork and put it to work all over Brodie’s Secret Stash. But I saved the Dark Knight-ish Ranger Danger: Requiem shirt for Jay to wear throughout the flick because in the world of our movie, Ranger Danger: Requiem is a gritty, rebooted version of a childhood superhero fave. Today marks the end of Week One of filming, and what a wonderful week it’s been! We’ve already shot a fist fulla cameos and @JayMewes is CRUSHING his return to the role that made him famous! If you’re way into this shit like I am, we’ve kicked off a making-of series on my @youtube channel (like we did for Clerks II back in 2006) called “The Road to Reboot”! See it at the link in my bio. #KevinSmith #jaymewes #movie #jayandsilentbobreboot #nola #sabanfilms #neworleans #wwambassador

The characters of Jay and Silent Bob, portrayed by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith respectively, made their debut appearance in Smith’s first movie, Clerks, as two hilarious slackers who spend their time hanging around the Quick Stop dancing, harassing customers and occasionally dealing weed. Since then, the two have appeared in many of Smith’s movies, including Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks 2.

The new image proves that Jay & Silent Bob Reboot is officially happening. Smith recently announced that he’s aiming for a fall 2019 release for the film, which means he’s about to have a busy spring and summer working to bring this comedy duo back to the big screen in Jay & Silent Bob Reboot.
