Poe Dameron episode 8

UPDATE: We spoke to Isaac and he clarified the intentions of his quote. Original story follows.

If J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm were a bit more open about who and what the characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens were, what follows might not be news. But right now, even though we know Oscar Isaac plays a character named Poe Dameron, we don’t know who that is. We’ve heard some rumors, and those rumors are that he’s very important to the sequel trilogy; the Han Solo of the younger generation. But those are just rumors. The fact of the matter is we don’t know who or what is important to this trilogy of films.

In a new interview, Isaac discussed Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars Episode VIII. His quote, albeit brief, could be construed as a spoiler for anyone avoiding info on who or what makes it to the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Read the Poe Dameron Episode 8 quote below, but proceed with caution.
