'Episode IX' Will Be "The War To End All Wars", According To John Boyega

By: Benjamin Hart

While the excitement continues to build for Star Wars: The Last Jedi's release later this year, it's hard not to look ahead to other future films, including the final(?) chapter of this story, Star Wars: Episode IX. Now that J.J. Abrams is slated to slip back into the director's chair for Episode IX, it's hard not to be intrigued about what's to come.

One particular Star Wars fan who is curious about the ongoing story is none other than one of the stars of these films, John Boyega. His character, Finn, is said to go on another exciting and challenging journey in The Last Jedi, and apparently he isn't stopping there. In a recent interview with at New York Comic Con, while promoting Pacific Rim: Uprising, the actor spoke briefly about Abrams' return to the Star Wars universe and hinted at where the story might be going in Star Wars: Episode IX:

“I think what’s fantastic is it feels like it’s coming back full circle. I don’t know nothing about the script, the story. I don’t know where Finn’s going, I don’t know where Rey is going, but definitely I feel this is the war to end all wars in this movie. I’m interested to know how he will handle that. I’m asking so many questions and I haven’t had a chance to kinda sit down and write J.J. a message just to say congratulations and I’m stoked. My fixation now is that he needs to get some SLEEP and GEAR UP because we’re doing another one of these movies, mate! But I think he’s gonna do a great job, as always. He’s J.J.”

Even though Boyega himself seems to be guessing at this point, it's very interesting to hear his thoughts on it, which could indicate what The Last Jedi will be leading up to. In my opinion, Finn's story is one of the most interesting aspects of this new trilogy. I can't wait to see where he, and all the rest of the characters end up on Episode IX.

Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.
