Scorned 'Star Wars' hero returning?
And Tom Cruise's bonkers 'Maverick' payday
What to know
Rumor has it John Boyega could return to Star Wars in 2025 Daisy Ridley pic… This would make sense and could be delightful. Many would argue Finn’s arc was poorly handled in Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker. A reprise could give writer Steven Knight and director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy a chance to redeem the character and explore his force sensitivity. The film is reportedly about Ridley’s Rey rebuilding a new Jedi Order, so perhaps Finn is involved in that? And hopefully Grogu is too? Now I’m just writing fan-fic. ✨
