Slashfilm were at the Hollywood press junket for The Last Jedi, and honed in on an issue that John Boyega raised during the Q&A – the way in which The Last Jedi tackle the topic of war in the galaxy.
Whilst answering a question on the absens of Han in the characters lifes, Boyega responded as such:
“We’re just keeping it moving to be honest with you, man. It’s true. The pressure’s on, man. There’s no time. I think that’s one thing unique to me about watching this movie was the commentary on war. There hasn’t been a Star Wars movie yet that has explored war in the way The Last Jedi does. It’s very messy; the categorizing of good and evil is all mixed together. In terms of Han, I’m sure we all feel sentimental if someone were to sit Finn down, sit Rey down. But Rey’s off training, she’s got stuff to do. I’ve got a back injury, I’ve got stuff to do. I can’t think about Han at the moment.”
Rogue One took us into the grittiness of war unlike anything we had seen in a Star Wars film, it will be interesting to see what direction Rian Johnston takes the theme.
