In Star Wars: The Force Awakens we met a very interesting character, one that I was not expecting to play such a crucial role in the film. That would be Finn played by John Boyega. Not only was he a simple Storm Trooper, that we have seen versions of on the big screen for 30+ years, but he actually betrayed the First Order to become a pivotal hero in the film.
Thanks to the sharp eyes at makingstarwars.net, they discovered a few weeks ago that he will actually be wearing a First Order Officer’s uniform. He will go on board a particular First Order space craft (more on that ship later), Tom Hardy will give him a Major League Baseball buttslap, and it was originally thought that Hardy’s character could be in cahoots with the Resistance. More information has surfaced that has led us to believe that Hardy simply knew him when he was FN-2187 and was congratulating Finn on his promotion. We now believe that Finn is infiltrating this ship to sabotage and likely destroy it.
One may ask, why is this a “big” deal? Well, the ship in question is a Super Star Destroyer. This seems slightly familiar to me as in Empire, after the Death Star was destroyed, the main arsenal was another Super Star Destroyer. However, the word is that they will look completely different, with the First Order’s being more geometrical in nature, but come on.
Regardless, the rumor is that Finn will infiltrate this massive behemoth and along with Kelly Marie Tranâ€™s character attempt to destroy it.
Are you happy to see Finn getting such a major role? Is this a little to similar to Empire Strikes Back, and will we have a rebuilt Star Killer Base in Star Wars 9? Am I the only one in the world that thinks Snoke is actually Vader? Speak up friends.
