While Star Wars: The Last Jedi had Daisy Ridley’s Rey and John Boyega’s Finn set out on different adventures, it sounds like JJ Abrams will bring the two characters back together in Star Wars: Episode IX.
/Film reports that John Boyega teased Finn and Rey’a reunion during a panel at Awesome Con. see what the actor said below:
“I haven’t read the script for Episode IX. But Daisy did shoot me a text saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I just heard from J.J. [Abrams], and we’re back together.’ That’s what I’m really excited about, is Finn and Rey back together again.”
The actor also touched on what’s next for Finn and what he wants to see for the character in the final chapter of the trilogy.
“I think it’s going to be all-out war in this final chapter, so we need to be prepared. One question I’ve always had as an actor being involved in Star Wars is why Finn decided to defect in the first place. I still don’t understand. I would love to know more, to go into his life as a Stormtrooper.”
Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to land in cinemas on December 20, 2019. JJ Abrams recently confirmed that the script is complete and filming is scheduled for July.
