While Rey is undoubtably the main character of the Star Wars films going forward, a lot of people are forgetting about Finn and Poe Dameron. Obviously both of these characters are important to the mythos as well, so we should not forget about each of their story arcs in The Last Jedi. While specifics are clearly very scarce, Oscar Isaac teased a little about Poe’s arc in Episode VIII in a recent interview.
“The characters that you know already: their specific character flaws or their weaknesses get tested. And out of that, I think, you get to see a bit more of who they are. The best way to learn about somebody is to see them in a crisis.”
Isaac is talking about Poe Dameron along with the other main characters of The Last Jedi, so it seems everyone will be having a hard time in this movie. This quote seems to fall in line with the little we have heard about the plot for The Last Jedi. It surely doesn’t sound like it’s going to be an easy road to taking down The First Order, that’s for sure.
