In Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, Finn will once again be donning a First Order uniform – as part of an undercover mission along with Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).
John Boyega said in a new interview with Screen Rant that he hopes for his character Finn to go on an unexpected journey after Star Wars: The Last Jedi and into Episode IX. The actor’s popularity has skyrocketed on the heels of his engaging, often hilarious, performance as the ex-Stormtrooper formerly known as FN-2187.
Johnson has previously hinted that The Last Jedi will “really dig into” Finn’s character.
Hopefully, Boyega’s comments aren’t a sign that his character arc in The Last Jedi is more predictable than he would have liked.
