John Boyega praises Carrie Fisher

Mark Hamill

As part of EW's Last Jedi cover story, it has been revealed that DJ is a key component of the mission that finds Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (new cast member Kelly Marie Tran) in Canto Bight, a wealthy, gambling resort city. "While I was figuring out what her deal was going to be in this film, it's one of the things I talked about with Carrie before I started writing: where the character would go". I think Leia knows she won't be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity. As one of the original lead characters, she was supposed to have this big purpose and the team behind the movie did a great job at honoring her memory, now that she passed away.

So, just as Darth Vader asked Luke to join him to fight the Emperor, there may be a scene in the upcoming movie in which the Jedi Master will ask Rey to join him to fight Snoke and his First Order. They have to portray these foreboding figures who could take you down at a moment's notice, which is why Johnson gave the costume designer clear instructions on what the Praetorians should look like.

"He appreciates the adoration for a second, but when he meets her, Finn is trying to escape the whole war".

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly magazine, he explained: "Poe's arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy". And she comes in and basically gives him a depiction of himself that wasn't necessarily true.

The aspect of showing the tragedy and loss of those affected by the treachery of the First Order is going to add much emotional depth to the film. He's that "slicer" that was rumored to exist back in March. It's an ongoing war that will never end.
