‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Is Bigger, Darker Than ‘The Force Awakens’: John Boyega Taks Finn, Rey Friendship

John Boyega, one of the breakout stars of the last Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, sat down with Variety to talk all about the movie. When it comes to Star Wars rumors, people don’t mess around. Boyega certainly gave us a lot to ponder over, telling the magazine that Finn and Rey are just friends, even though the fan fiction will always say otherwise.

“Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a storm trooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.” Boyega says.

The next Star Wars movie will be directed by Rian Johnson, who’s being handed the torch after J.J. Abrams directed The Force Awakens . Boyega says that the movie will be:  “a different take, darker, bigger.” Sadly he couldn’t give us anything better than that; Disney doesn’t mess around with spoilers. I am hoping that bigger this time around just doesn’t mean that the planet destroying weapon has a slightly larger range.

Finn will be in all three of the Star Wars movies (6, 7 and 8). We still don’t know much about the next movies, so every little bit of information helps. Tune in to iDigitaltimes to keep up with all your Star Wars spoilers as they happen. I’m still hoping for Ewoks. CGI teddy bears may actually melt my icy heart.
