John Boyega Teases Something "Visually Crazy" From STAR WARS: EPISODE IX
We all know that John Boyega loves to build hype for the movies he stars in, and he totally should! They’re his movies! If I was making a big movie like Star Wars, I’d be excited to talk about it as well!
The actor recently took to Instagram to share an image after a long day of shooting some stuff for Star Wars: Episode IX. It’s not a revealing image. Just a shot of his dirty hands with a single drop of blood. It’s the caption that comes with that photo that is the exciting part. He says:
"The whole team pushed themselves today to achieve something visually crazy! I’ve had many moments of shock on set but not like today and I can’t wait until you know why."
All the Star Wars films are filled with “visually crazy” action sequences, but this being the final film in the saga, I can’t help but get excited by a comment like this. My mind starts to race and starts to imagine all kinds of possible “visually crazy” Star Wars scenarios! As a longtime fan of the franchise, it’s hard not to!
I just can’t wait to see what Boyega is talking about! It’s also been previously reported that the scale of the production on Episode IX is unlike anything that we’ve seen in a Star Wars film before.
Star Wars News Net reported on a leak on Reddit that was later deleted, but noted that it explained that "the scale of the film is incredibly large, even by Star Wars standards, and fans will be surprised."
What would be something visually crazy that you’d want to see in Episode IX?
J.J. Abrams is directing the film, and the cast includes Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Anthony Daniels, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Mark Hamill, Billie Lourd, Lupita Nyong’o, Daisy Ridley, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Carrie Fisher, Naomi Ackie, Keri Russell, and Billy Dee Williams.
Star Wars: Episode IX is currently set to be released on December 20th, 2019.
