Leia’s ‘Previous Jedi’ Sendoff Will Have “Deeper Meaning,” Says John Boyega BY SAEED NASIR

The star claims that Carrie Fisher, who passed away unexpectedly in Dec, will be honored the proper way in the film.
Star Wars: THE FINAL Jedi will have a great deal of occasions for original series stars Carrie Fisher and Symbol Hamill to glimmer.

John Boyega, who takes on the reformed stormtrooper Finn in the film, lately sat down with all the Hollywood Reporter’s ‘Honors Chatter’ podcast, where he teased information on the upcoming Legend Wars sequel.

“The Power Awakens was a great basis,” Boyega informed THR’s Scott Feinberg, “and now we’re going to build a huge house.”

Boyega said the film, from director Rian Johnson, is darker and “very physical.”

“Finn is a lot more vigorous and involved in the combat, which is something that I really wished,” said Boyega.

Last Jedi would be the final installment to feature Fisher as Leia following a celebrity’ untimely loss of life in December.

“I think the sendoff is very cool. Even before she passed away, I’d see her in moments and be like, ‘This is absolutely cool for both Carrie and Tag, who will be the last two original leads [alive in the franchise]. I sensed like they should have more and more — they’ve been doing this for some time and have been the conquering heart and soul of something special, and I just feel like [The Last Jedi] gives homage to them generally,” said Boyega. “But alas, now that she’s passed, it can have a deeper so this means.”

He added, “I believe the fans will appreciate that.”

THE PAST Jedi opens Dec. 15.
