visually crazy star wars

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi. But all of that apparently pales in comparison to the “visually crazy” moment Boyega is teasing in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9. Read More »

Star Wars Episode 9

As has become customary with any new Star Wars saga film, very little is known about what is coming in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga. Star Wars Episode 9 is currently in production, and very few secrets are making their way on to the web, which isn’t surprising since Mark Hamill recently compared the secrecy surrounding the franchise as something akin to being in the CIA. But with rumblings of a teaser trailer not far off, one new detail has emerged about the Star Wars Episode 9 setting.

Find out how long after Star Wars: The Last Jedi the events of Star Wars Episode 9 will take place. Read More »

Hold Back the Stars

Attack the Block actor John Boyega is currently reprising his role as Finn in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode IX, but he’ll return to space again in Hold Back the Stars, a movie adaptation of a sci-fi romance novel that will team him with Black Panther breakout Letitia Wright.

The project is being described as “Romeo & Juliet meets Gravity,” and with those actors and that description, I’m already hooked. Learn more about the new movie below. Read More »

Star Wars Episode 9 time jump

The most recent Star Wars movies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, have either led directly into or picked up almost directly from the events of another film in the saga. But a new comment from actor John Boyega, who plays Finn in the new trilogy, indicates that a Star Wars Episode 9 time jump may happen which would bring the franchise back to its original trilogy roots.

Pacific Rim Uprising proved that John Boyega is long due for a franchise to headline on his own. But could that franchise be a Marvel superhero series?

Maybe, Boyega said at Awesome Con in Washington, D.C. The Star Wars and Pacific Rim Uprising actor hinted that he met with Marvel in the past, but would probably not play a superhero until somewhere “down the line.”

episode 9 finn and rey

Finn and Rey are the heart and soul of the new Star Wars trilogy. When Daisy Ridley and John Boyega literally crashed into each other in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they instantly had so much charm and chemistry that it was no question that they were fit to lead Star Wars into a new era.

That’s why it was such a tragedy that they were kept apart in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But don’t worry, Finn-Rey shippers. That dynamic that you loved so much in Force Awakens will be back in Star Wars Episode 9.

John Boyega interview

Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost cast a long shadow in 2013’s Pacific Rim. He was a military man willing to sacrifice everything for the greater good. But Jake Pentecost is not like his father. In Pacific Rim Uprising, Jake is a scavenger who’s happy to ignore his father’s sacrifice – until he’s thrust into battle himself.

For 25-year-old John Boyega, Jake is different from Finn (Star Wars), Moses (Attack the Block), or any character he’s played yet. At the movie’s press junket earlier this month, I sat down with Boyega at the Universal Studios lot to talk about Jake’s swagger, the notion of legacy, the challenges of producing a sequel of this size, and his personal favorite ice cream toppings (it’ll make sense when you see the movie).
