Rey & Finn Team Again In “Episode 9”

One obvious issue with “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” even amongst its biggest fans, is that it splits up the core trio of Rey, Finn and Poe after bringing them together in ‘Force Awakens’.

By the end, they’re reunited and now actor John Boyega has seemingly confirmed that the two will remain together for much of the J.J. Abrams-directed “Star Wars: Episode IX”. Speaking at Awesome Con in Washington over the weekend, he revealed to Slashfilm:

“I haven’t read the script for Episode IX. But Daisy [Ridley] 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.”

Filming on the third installment in the current trilogy kicks off in July and Boyega says he suspects there will be an “all-out war” between the Resistance and The First Order.
