John Boyega Wants a Longer Fight in STAR WARS: EPISODE IX


In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we get to see Finn fight Captain Phasma. This is a fight that many fans were excited for, and it was teased in the promotional materials. Unfortunately, it was a disappointing fight. Even for someone who enjoyed the film. It lasts all of about 2 minutes and is pretty anti-climactic. It turns out that fans weren’t the only ones disappointed by this though. John Boyega, the actor who plays Finn, was also disappointed in the way this fight was handled. In a recent interview with IGN, he said:

Yeah, man, I didn’t expect it to be that quick if I’m being honest with you. I was like, wait, wait, what? He’s been like ramped up for a big fight and then it was over in a second.

But, hopefully, Finn gets to face someone else or has a fight that’s much longer by the way [in Episode IX].

I hope that Finn gets a better fight in Star Wars: Episode IX, I just don’t know who it would be against now that Phasma is dead. You’ll be able to watch the disappointing fight when The Last Jedi comes to Digital on March 13, and on Blu-ray and DVD on March 27, 2018. If you want more Boyega, be sure to watch Pacific Rim: Uprising on March 23, 2018.
