What in the world will Star Wars: Episode 9 have in store for us? Sadly, for the time being, the answer is there is nothing set in place. Just recently writer-director Colin Trevorrow was canned, meaning that new director J.J. Abrams is essentially starting from scratch here.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about it, and it certainly doesn’t mean the actors can’t also share their enthusiasm. Speaking with Coming Soon, actor John Boyega did just that, saying:

“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.”

It’s always comforting to hear when an actor has full confidence in something going forward. Of course, we wouldn’t necessarily expect an actor to exude doubt while discussing a project, but you get a real sense of excitement what he’s saying here. He may be an actor, but you get a sense that he’s a genuine fan here.

Will Star War: Episode 9 actually have a “war to end all wars,” thought? We’ll have to wait a couple years to find out.

Star Wars: Episode 9 hits theaters on December 20, 2019.
