‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: John Boyega On Finn’s ‘Dark Mission’

Star Wars John Boyega Finn

When we last saw John Boyega’s Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he had been wounded by Kylo Ren and separated from Rey as she left to seek out Luke Skywalker.

When speaking with Access Hollywood at this weekend’s D23 Expo, Boyega teased that Finn will be very much a part of the action in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and that his story will include a “dark mission.”

“It’s gonna be lots of fighting for Finn. A lot of running, a lot of shooting. It’s a really dark mission.”

What do you think that dark mission will involve? Do you think Finn will reunite with Rey at some point not too far into the movie? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

Written and directed by Johnson, The Last Jedi’s cast includes Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Benicio Del Toro as “DJ”, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Jimmy Vee as R2-D2.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to be released in theaters on December 15, 2017.

Star Wars The Last Jedi General LeiaDisney’s D23 Expo was where we expected to learn something about the future of the Star Wars franchise after 2019’s Episode IX, but the only thing we ended up getting was a pretty incredible behind-the-scenes sizzle reel for Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi.

Howevr, Disney and Lucasfilm apparently had another surprise in store for fans today besides that sizzle reel: a batch of brand new characters posters for The Last Jedi, spotlighting Rey, Finn, General Leia, and last but not least, Luke Skywalker.

You can check out the Rey poster below and the rest in the gallery. We’ll keep on updating this article as more characters posters are released online.

    I’m in the dark on what this “dark mission” will be

    Probably won’t reunite with Rey…

      Oh, he will. The BTS video showing John Boyega and Daisy Ridley goofing off on the Crait location (where the film’s third act presumably is) suggests that this is going to happen.
