Star Wars: John Boyega on Finn Going Undercover in The Last Jedi

Finn spent most of Star Wars: The Force Awakens running like hell away from the First Order, who had raised him since childhood to be one of their followers and ultimately a Stormtrooper. Actor John Boyega told IGN today that Finn’s next encounter with the First Order in this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi “doesn’t come without a fight” for his character.

As was revealed during Star Wars Celebration, at one point during The Last Jedi Finn is joined by new character Rose (Kelly Marie Tran), a Resistance worker, on a mission that takes them undercover in The First Order.
