In an interview on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, John Boyega discussed how he missed working with Harrison Ford on the latest chapter of the saga and also revealed Finn’s first words in The Last Jedi.

Boyega recounted how he missed Ford’s presence on the set of The Last Jedi:

The Force Awakens concluded with Finn falling into a coma following a showdown with Kylo Ren and Boyega revealed what his first words will be when Finn awakens:

“Finn wakes up thinking he’s still in Force Awakens. Thinking he’s still on the snowy forest with the fight with Kylo Ren and the first word he says is “Rey” when he wakes. He still thinks he’s in the actions of… he’s got a lot of recuperating to do.”
