As we are just 10 days from the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and five episodes into the epic new Disney+ series, The Mandalorian, one major cast member of the new franchise is speaking up on his feelings in regards to the story choices made by Rian Johnson is Episode XIII.
In a new interview with Hypebeast, John Boyega (Finn) spoke frankly about his take on the new trilogy this far:
“The Force Awakens I think was the beginning of something quite solid. The Last Jedi, if I’m being honest, I’d say that was feeling a bit iffy for me.
I didn’t necessarily agree with a lot of the choices in that, and that’s something that I spoke to Mark [Hamill] a lot about and we had conversations about it,” Boyega added. “And it was hard for all of us, because we were separated.”
“I guess the original Star Wars films there was much more of a trio feel where it was essentially about Luke’s journey, but Han and Leia there was a strong dynamic, which I think, I don’t know how quickly we’re going to be able to establish that longterm dynamic with [The Rise of Skywalker]. But if it’s exploring that dynamic, then that would be cool.”
