Star Wars: The Last Jedi's John Boyega Reveals New Plot Details


Fortunately, if your really wanted to know more about all those subjects (including the gerbil part), Disney and LucasFilm revealed a deluge of new images and information about Rian Johnson's chapter in the ongoing Star Wars saga.

We salute you, General.

- Luke blames himself for Kylo Ren turning to the dark side and begins to question his connection to The Force.

"It's not like we made the film thinking that we were bringing closure to the character".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, 2017. The Last Jedi will mark the last on-screen appearance of Carrie Fisher's strong female protagonist. To add to this weight is the uncertainty of who he is now. As she tries to pick up her own pieces, she may find they fit together well with the remnants of Luke Skywalker.

"We just need a codebreaker and he's the best in the galaxy", John Boyega said in an interview published by Entertainment Weekly on Thursday. It is suggested that we will finally know who Rey's parents are and more. He's not just hiding because he's scared.

But Leia Organa never wavered in her commitment to fighting to ensure freedom in the galaxy despite the grief or trauma she encountered.

The article reveals that although Rey (Daisy Ridley) spent most of The Force Awakens making friends, her relationship with Luke Skywalker won't be nearly as easygoing. Her mother Debbie Reynolds died the next day.

It left fans with one major question: why is Luke hiding out on a remote island planet? Luke feels responsible for that. He recalled: "When I was exposed to the world in 'Star Wars, ' I also was exposed to the reality of ignorance that still exists around the world".

- But instead he encounters Rose (Kelly Marie Tran), a "nobody" working as a mechanic for the Resistance who sees Finn as a hero.

"I just tried to kind of ignore that aspect of it and have the story take the shape that it needed to".

The new details from EW also hint at a conflict between Leia and Laura Dern's mysterious character, the Resistance commander Vice Admiral Holdo.

Is Luke super bummed about Kylo Ren? I'll miss her energy.

Rey's background is still unclear.
