Pacific Rim: Uprising lead and producer John Boyega showed up at Awesome Con 2018 and talked about #FinnRose, #FinnRey, #FinnPoe and more.
While promoting his newly released sci-fi flick, Boyega was also prodded with questions about his other upcoming sci-fi movie – Star Wars: Episode IX. Until the trilogy has not yet reached its end, Boyega will never be excused from the Star Wars’ fan base and their curiosities toward the upcoming installments.
Boyega was asked about the box office franchises he is in. When asked about his contributions as one of the producers of Pacific Rim: Uprising, Boyega said that he helped with the pre-visual CGI fights, casting, marketing, and so on.
As for Star Wars and the future of the franchise, Boyega shared that being an actual hardcore fan he would want to see origin stories of Boba Fett and Yoda and the Old Republic, which resulted to screaming, agreeing fans. In terms of Star Wars ships (and we’re not talking about space vehicles), Boyega ships Finn and Rey. SlashFilm had the opportunity to ask Boyega about the dynamic duo, and here’s what he said:
“I haven’t read the script for Episode 9. But Daisy did shoot me a text saying, “Oh my gosh, I just heard from J.J. [Abrams], and we’re back together. That’s what I’m really excited about, is Finn and Rey back together again.”
Pacific Rim: Uprising is in theaters now.
