John Boyega Thinks Star Wars: Episode IX 'Is Going to Be All Out War!'

    We participated in the Awesome Con conference call with John Boyega tonight, and listened to him tackle a variety of subjects, but most importantly Star Wars! So here are the Star Wars excerpts from the interview, including a little bit about his preparation for Episode IX and what we can expect tonally from the film, which starts filming in four months!





    Hosted by Lacey Gilleran (who has recently joined our official podcast The Resistance Broadcast), Boyega answered several questions about Star Wars, from his own personal fandom, to his character Finn's backstory, his interaction with fans, and last but not least Episode IX which starts filming in four months!



    Does he feel he has any pressure on himself playing Finn, any moments of self doubt, and how has he channeled that into his performance of Finn?

    Does anything stand out to him about interactions with Star Wars fans?

    Boyega goes on to say that as a big video gamer himself, having played The Force Unleashed I and II, and Battlefront, it was crazy that he became a playable character in Battlefront II, and that it is weird killing off his own character while playing the game.



    So what’s next for Boyega? Star Wars: Episode IX!

    The Star Wars sequel trilogy will culminate with Episode IX, and by the sounds of it, Boyega and his castmates are in for quite the rigorous production, in what will likely be a massive war to end all wars, and bring this recent trilogy in the Star Wars franchise to a powerful and climactic finish.

    Thank you to the awesome Lacey Gilleran of Awesome Con for including us in the conference call with John Boyega, we were hoping he would slip a bit more on Episode IX, but he's a pro. But if you get tickets, you can see Boyega at Awesome Con in Washington DC next weekend!



    You can hear Lacey on our official podcast The Resistance Broadcast starting this coming Monday! We are super excited to have her aboard.



    NOTE: We had submitted a question asking Boyega who he would like to see direct a future Star Wars film but his representatives declined the question. It was worth a shot for such a hot button issue of late!

    That would be surreal to play as yourself in a video game.

    Its really hard to get excited for IX after TLJ. I really was disappointed with nearly everything in the movie so I hope JJ can come up with a plot that is better than TLJ's. I'm really hoping for a massive time jump (5-10 years), that way IX can start with massive changes in characters and the state of the galaxy. I'm still holding out a slimmer of hope that Finn will be Rey's first apprentice and will be a jedi in IX.

    'Yeah! One thing that stands out is that I am not pretending to like Star Wars."

    SHOTS FIRED!

    Don't misread the statement. The emphasis here is on pretending. He's saying he's genuinely enthusiastic to be a fan as opposed to just contractually-obliging the studio to promote the film.

    re: all out war

    This is my feeling as well. Jump ahead a few years, and put it immediately into the thick of the fighting a-la ROTS. Plenty of time to explain Leia's departure, and to build a real opposition to the First Order. It's time for a war in the stars!

    Imagine that. War in a franchise that's named Star Wars. Imagination and originality is thriving!

    Wasn't the "all out war" quote from like last October? I distinctly remember reading that then, too.

    It was "war to end all wars" the last time he spoke about it. Sounds like decrease in scale! :p

    Let's hope it just isn't any war... But a trade war! Nothing like a good old fashioned trade war...

    Wait, so this war isn’t going to take any weekends or holidays off? That’s inconvenient.

    STAR PEACE

    Episode X

    NO WAR

    Peace has been restored to the galaxy.
    Everything in the galaxy is now just fine.
    We're alright now, thankyou. Quiet isn't it?

    I think it might rain later, we'll stay home.
    Is there anything good on tv tonight?

    Would you like a nice cup of tea, dear?

    That new electricity bill needs paying.
    You have a big hole in your left sock.

    Jon is just hyping the film(episode 9), he hasn't read any script at all. He is just getting people excited. Its his weekend with the opening of Pacific Rim Uprising, so he is already hyped up. I liked the first Pacific Rim I don't think this one was made for me, I'll catch it on tv by the summer.
