Rey and Finn Are Confirmed To Be Teaming Up Again in STAR WARS: EPISODE IX
Fin (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) didn't really get to spend very much time together in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They each had their own journey that they had to embark on. But they reunited at the end of the film and according to Boyega, director J.J. Abrams will keep these two characters together throughout the course of Star Wars: Episode IX. During a panel at Awesome Con, Boyega had this to say:
“I haven’t read the script for ‘Episode 9,’ 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.'"
That's good to hear! I do like these two characters and I'm excited to see how this final chapter will continue to explore their characters. Boyega went on to say:
"I think it’s going to be all-out war in this final chapter, so we need to be prepared."
I hope that in the process of this "all-out war" we get answers to our questions that haven't been answered yet. One thing that Boyega says that he'd like to see explored is why Finn decided to defect from the Empire:
"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."
Personally, I have about a hundred other questions that I'd like answered before we get to something like that. But, one thing we can count on at this point is that Rey and Finn will reunite for this final adventure and I can't wait to see where it leads them.
