Jason Momoa wraps Chief of War, bids farewell to New Zealand after hanging with All Blacks

Jason Momoa has wrapped up his work in New Zealand, revealing he spent his remaining time with the All Blacks - and even got one of their new jerseys.

Posting on his Instagram Stories, the Fast X star showed off the farewell gift as part of the wrap-up of his Apple TV+ series, Chief of War.

It was a quick dry towel made by activewear apparel brands So iLL and Slowtide.

"Check this out," the star said in the video. "Quick-dry towel, So iLL, Slowtide and they made it so it's a little wrap gift, it's rad, see Chief of War," he added, showing off the logo embossed into the towel.

Momoa also said it was like his Lavalava, displaying the pink and black sides of the towel, before he flipped the camera back to himself.

With pursed lips, he said: "It's our last day in New Zealand then we're wrapping, it's been a long run - love you, everyone."

Momoa has been here since September last year as the filming of the show took place. He was welcomed to Hoani Waititi Marae in West Auckland on his arrival ahead of the production of the show, which is based on the true story of a warrior chief caught up in the colonisation of Hawaii in the late 1700s.

Momoa also met the All Blacks, saying it had blown him away.

In September he shared photos of his meeting with past and present ABs on social media, with a caption saying he was a "f***ing HUGE All Blacks fan" and thanking the sports stars for giving him signed jerseys.

The pictures show him embracing the likes of Tana Umaga, Caleb Clarke, Ardie Savea, Dane Coles, Richie Mo'unga, Ofa Tu'ungafasi, Rieko Ioane, Nepo Laulala and Tupou Vaa'i.

On Thursday, he met up with the All Blacks again attending the launch of the new jersey.

"So thankful to be invited to the Adidas @allblacks Rugby World Cup Jersey Launch. my babies meeting legends. My brothers @tana_umaga13 @ofatuungafasi @calebpressley all my aloha to the new team. See u in Dunedin aloha," he wrote on social media, sharing pictures and video from the event.

In May this year, Momoa caused chaos at Auckland's Sylvia Park when he attended a fan screening of the last Fast and Furious film, Fast X.

Ahead of the Auckland premiere of his new movie, The Project's Kanoa Lloyd asked him if he'd applied for citizenship in Aotearoa.

"No, I haven't tried yet, but I just was gonna keep bringing movies down here, and then from there, once I find that spot…" he said.

Momoa confessed he was considering possibly somewhere in the South Island, because he liked the cold.

There's also growing speculation Momoa will be back in New Zealand soon as he's due to film the Minecraft movie, some of which is believed to be filmed here. He's due to co-star alongside What We Do In the Shadows star Matt Berry.

Momoa hinted he'd be returning to Aotearoa soon, signing off by saying: "More to come."
