You all probably remember back before The Force Awakens was released that we had a ton of promotional material showing Jon Boyega’s character Finn using a Lightsaber. Fans, therefore, wondered if Finn would go on to have any kind of Force ability.

Of course, the movie came and went and we realized there was a bit of bait and switch with regards to Finn using the famous weapon. He did wield a Lightsaber twice but was clearly no match for Kylo Ren, which of course is when Rey felt the power of the Force and pulled that weapon towards her and temporarily defeated Kylo Ren.

With Star Wars: Episode 9 currently in production a fan posted at Boyega on Twitter about what he hopes to see from Finn in Episode 9 and Boyega responded.

Now, quite a few fans across social media have taken this is some sort of confirmation or hint that Finn will once again wield a lightsaber in Episode 9. However, I think it’s probably more likely that Boyega was responding to the wish that his character becomes a badass hero in Episode 9. It’s a little late in the day to show Finn having any Force powers in Episode 9 and I can’t see much of any value in him using the weapon badly again.

Still, who knows at this point? For all we know, Finn could become a student of Rey at some point, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

What do you think of Boyega’s comments, agree with my interpretation or thinking “OMG, Finn gonna use a Lightsaber again y’all”? Let us know what you think in the usual place below.
