John Boyega Hints at a Time Jump for STAR WARS: EPISODE IX
John Boyega was recently talking to UK Finance about an app to help fight cancer, DreamLab, when he dropped a little hint about Star Wars: Episode IX. He said:
Could his longer hair signal a time jump between The Last Jedi and IX? It would definitely help in the ability to explain why Leia’s gone. It would also fit J.J. Abrams’ ability to borrow from the Original Trilogy. After all, there is a time jump between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. A time jump is not a bad idea, plus, we already have a comic that illustrates what happens right after The Last Jedi ends. The real question is, how long will Finn’s hair be?
I recommend reading the whole article as he talks about the opportunities Star Wars has given him as well as a bit more about the DreamLab app.
Star Wars: Episode IX has a current release date of December 20, 2019.
