A new rumor today at Making Star Wars has apparent details of what Finn (John Boyega) will get up to in Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” at Disney and Lucasfilm.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD
The site claims the character’s key objective in the new movie is to infiltrate a First Order Super Star Destroyer and plant explosives – a ship that has been designed a little differently than previous Star Destroyers seen in the original trilogy.
To do so, he 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 says 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.
Will these pan out? The site has gotten several major scoops right in the past so don’t dismiss it out of hand. We’ll see for ourselves when “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in cinemas on December 15th.
