When John Boyega reprises his role as a reformed Stormtrooper Finn in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he’ll finally be a big deal in the Resistance. The Star Wars actor told Entertainment Weekly that “Finn’s a big deal” in The Last Jedi, riffing off a joke he shared with Harrison Ford’s Han Solo in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“The funny thing is, between VII and VIII, Finn’s now a big deal! He is now a big deal. Imagine that – you get taken down by Kylo Ren,” Boyega shared. “Think about what the gossip’s going to be like in the Resistance. ‘Oh, that’s the guy that got slashed down by Kylo?’”
Finn suffered a near-fatal injury in The Force Awakens while aiding Rey, Han Solo, Chewbacca and the Resistance against the villainous First Order. He was gravely injured and cast aside after attempting a lightsaber duel with Kylo Ren, who was out hunting Rey in the movie’s climax.
