New rumors are circulating about Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” at Disney and Lucasfilm. These rumors pertain to John Boyega’s Finn.
Making Star Wars claims the character’s key objective in the new movie is to infiltrate a First Order Super Star Destroyer and plant explosives. Finn will be doing so on a ship that has been designed a little differently than previous Star Destroyers seen in the original trilogy. Expect bigger and better.
As part of his plan, Finn goes undercover in a First Order officer’s uniform and is accompanied by Kelly Marie Tran’s mystery character. Tom Hardy’s mystery role in the project is said to be a Stormtrooper who congratulates Finn for receiving a promotion.
The site also reports that Kylo Ren’s Knights will kidnap both Poe and Finn, providing a reunion for them but one that also serves as bait to lure Rey out of hiding. While these are just rumors, the site has in the past reported on major scoops. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in cinemas on December 15th.
Concept art for the packaging on an upcoming line of Star Wars: The Last Jedi toys has given us our first glimpse of the film’s three heroes. Revealed on StarWars.com ahead of Force Friday II – the fan event where The Last Jedi’s merchandise launches.
Force Friday II will take place on September 1, showing off Last Jedi tie-in toys, books, clothing and more. Before The Force Awakens, 2015’s Force Friday saw 18 hours of unveilings, including our first look at many aspects of the new trilogy.
In Force Awakens, approximately 30 years after the destruction of the second Death Star, the last remaining Jedi, Luke Skywalker, has disappeared. The First Order has risen from the fallen Galactic Empire and seeks to eliminate the New Republic. The Resistance, backed by the Republic and led by Luke’s twin sister, General Leia Organa, opposes them while searching for Luke to enlist his aid.
