Star Wars: The Last Jedi will reunite audiences with John Boyega’s Finn as the former stormtrooper embarks on a secret mission for the Resistance. In an interview with IGN, Boyega discussed the undercover mission and teased a potential fight when Finn infiltrates the First Order.
Boyega revealed that Finn has to prepare himself for a potential showdown when he returns to the First Order, especially considering his last encounter with Captain Phasma:
“Well, it’s like imagine you work at McDonald’s. You push your manager into a chute compactor and then a year later you decide to go back dressed as one of the colleagues. It’s not the best situation. There’s a lot of chasing, there’s a mission that needs to be completed but that isn’t necessarily something that doesn’t come without a fight and it’s something that he’s gonna have to face for himself.”
Boyega expressed his enthusiasm over being able to go undercover:
“But it was fun for me. I always wanted to go undercover. Star Wars undercover is different because you wear a hat and all of a sudden no one recognizes you. … I’d be thinking to myself walking in one of those scenes, isn’t anyone gonna go, ‘Wait, isn’t that Finn?’ Do you know what I mean? But such is the magic of Star Wars. It’s fun. It’s fun to do. It’s cool.”
