It’s the modern day Butch and Sundance, a bromance that was a major lynchpin of the relationships in the sequel trilogy and John Boyega and Oscar Isaac discuss that friendship in one of the behind the scenes documentaries to be found on the home video release of The Rise of Skywalker.
“It was more of a technicality,” Isaac chimes in. “I wouldn’t call it an ‘audition.'”
“More of a read,” Boyega mimics. “But he read the scene and I was kind of like, ‘J.J., what are we doing, man? It’s him. C’mon, we’re wasting time, man.’ And it’s nice to be able to actualize that chemistry we had on that first read.”
