There is a Chance Finn Will Wield a Lightsaber Again in EPISODE IX
Ever since the trailers and posters were released for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I’ve been holding out hope that Finn, played by John Boyega, would be a Jedi. I’ve loved this idea of a Stormtrooper becoming a Jedi since I saw the film.
Sadly, it doesn’t look like I’ll ever see Finn become a Jedi, but I might get to see him wield a lightsaber again in Episode IX.
One fan sent out a tweet expressing his hope to see Finn using a lightsaber in the new film and Boyega responded in a very excited manner.
Now, the original tweet was really a two-part post which means Boyega is possibly responding only to the first part that doesn’t mention a lightsaber. However, Boyega doesn’t shoot down the lightsaber idea, so maybe there’s something there. I think it’d be cool if Finn used a lightsaber even if he doesn’t get the Force.
Star Wars: Episode IX will premiere December 20, 2019.
