Since The Force Awakens in 2015, fans are asking about the origins of Rey. But what about Finn? We will investigate this in The Rise of Skywalker assures director J.J. Abrams. Given that this was the last chapter of the Skywalker saga, this is really our last chance to explore these characters on the big screen. That's why it's important that we learn a bit more about our heroes, which Abrams is well aware of.
Both Daisy Ridley and J.J. Abrams has promised that in Episode IX we'll learn more about Rey, so that's not such a big problem. But John Beyegas Finn was more a question mark, as we know next to nothing about his origins. However, in a recent interview, Abrams addressed Finn's past and said that she will be part of the film.
"It's part of the story of this movie, and it was mentioned in Episode VII, but it gives a little more light to the dark."
In The Force Awakens We meet for the first time Finn or FN-2187 as Stormtrooper within the first order. After a deadly attack on a village, he decides to escape the clutches of the First Order by releasing Poe. The two flee to Jakku, Poe nicknamed Finn and the rest is Star Wars history. Finn merely reveals that he was accepted into the First Order as a child and that FN-2187 was the only name they ever gave him. At least at Rey we know that she was left behind by her parents on Jakku and was a Junker. Speaking a little further, J.J. Abrams explains that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will shed some light on all the main characters, not just Finn and Rey.
"That's what I would say Each of the characters gets more light into their story, I'm not saying that we get massive downloads of all their childhoods and every important step that takes them where they are there are a lot of questions about Finn's past, about Poe's past, obviously Rey and Kylo, and then some of the new characters we meet. "
About Rey's origins before The Last Jedi was much speculated. Director Rian Johnson chose not to answer certain questions from the fans, and the answers he provided proved to be in disagreement. But that was a middle chapter in the trilogy. As Abrams explains, things are different, as this is the last chapter.
"We went into this movie very much in the attitude that this would be conclusive must .You have to get some answers, you have to learn a few things. "
In fact, this movie has a lot to do. Not only does it have to deliver a satisfying end to this Star Wars trilogy but it is also the end of the saga begun more than 40 years ago by George Lucas. Let's see if J.J. Abrams can do it when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th. This message comes to us about Vanity Fair .
