New Rumors About Finn's Role in STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI
Some possible new details have surfaced about John Boyega's character, Finn, in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The guy went through quite an ordeal in The Force Awakens, but he'll be back in action and on a mission to help take down the First Order.
The following intel comes from Making Star Wars, who has been pretty reliable when it comes to Star Wars movie news. They have some well-placed sources. If you don't want to know what Finn will be up to in one major part of the story, then I suggest you stop reading now.
That being said, consider this a rumor until anything is released that confirms it.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will apparently feature a First Order Super Star Destroyer that's bigger that any of the other Star Destroyers we've seen in the Star Wars Universe. It's described as being "huge" and a "triangle-shaped wedge."
"This is just a gigantic huge wedge, solid, and dark. I speculate this is the main command ship of the First Order in The Last Jedi."
According to the report, Finn will end up on this ship as part of his mission, and he's got a very big adventure ahead of him. While on the ship Finn will be undercover wearing a First Order officer's uniform, and at one point he will run into a stormtrooper he used to know. This Stormtrooper is reportedly played by Tom Hardy.
The gist is that a stormtrooper that used to know Finn slaps his ass; knowing him back when he was FN-2187, the trooper clearly doesn’t know what actually happened on Starkiller Base.
The trooper is said to be congratulating Finn on his promotion within the First Order. So what exactly is Finn doing undercover on this Star Destroyer? Well, he and Kelly Marie Tran’s character are there to plant explosives on it so that they can blow it up. Sounds to me like Finn is on a suicide mission. But it's Finn, I'm sure he'll be just fine.
They also saw some concept art from the film and explain that the ship is orbiting around the main world of the First Order:
Concept art depicted the ship above a red world, which makes us think that could potentially be the main world of the First Order post-Starkiller Base. Snoke is supposed to travel around via a mobile command base so it is hard to say if he’s actually there. After the First Order’s defeat at the Starkiller Base and with more training for Kylo Ren on the horizon, perhaps he changed his security protocols?
Again, we probably won't know if any of this is true until we start seeing some actual footage from the film. Until then, this is only a rumor that is meant to spark discussion among fans because that's what we love to do!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes from writer and director Rian Johnson. It's currently in post-production and will be released on December 15, 2017.
