    Seconded!!

    Anyways, I'm excited for Finn! I don't have any specific hopes other than a great arc and more interaction with Rey. Their dynamic in TFA was amazing, and while the separation in TLJ made sense, I can't wait for them to unite again.

    I’m hoping that we see a more mature Finn in IX. Im hoping, but not confident, that JJ will do this.

    Yeah, I'm wary as well. I know a lot of people have confidence in Abrams but we need to remember that he was the one who oversaw Finn being used as a red-herring. So I think that confidence should be tempered with a healthy dose of skepticism.

    I really hope JJ does something new with Finn in IX. Rian basically repeated the arc from TFA. Finn should be a important part of the Resistance now. He fights for the bigger good and not "only" for Rey.

    Well, 8 does take place relatively close to where 7 ends with his arc.

    I'm saying it would be to quick if he suddenly started to care about the Resistance, and not just for Rey.

    It may be, but on the other side Rian "rushed" Kylo's and Rey's development too. Kylo should have hated or at least disliked Rey at the beginning of the movie, but that's a different topic...
    I just wanted to say that JJ has to pull of a lot of development for Finn's character.

    That...is also a very good point. And one of my largest gripes about TFA. But all that means now is that I can't trust the trailer material. Even then, we can still look forward to Finn's arc and screen time in the movie!

    Finn's whole development as a character in TFA happens in the first twenty-ish minutes of the film and the thing that should've been his arc happened in the first scene. I'm not gonna dive more deeply into this but how Abrams treats the main roster of characters will be a big point in my discussion of The Force Awakens, coming to your galaxy this Wednesday, so I will leave the discussion as it is for now.

    Unless there's a huge lore change in IX, Rey will not be parenting anyone. I am curious if JJ pushes a romance between the two of them since that was kind of suggested in TFA.

    What do you mean by "huge lore change"...? AFAIK, the only post-E8 lore we have is minor conversations taking place on the Millennium Falcon in the immediate aftermath of E8 (the current arc of the Poe Dameron comic). So there is certainly nothing in there that says she can't have kids. And if you mean they have to change the "lore" stating that Jedi can't have personal relationships (and if we ignore the fact that Anakin threw that rule out the window) then I see it as something that could be very easily ignored by someone 2 full generations removed from the abolishment of the old Jedi Council. She may not even know the old Jedi codes, let alone feel beholden to obey them.

    Where would us Finn's Fans like to see Finn at in 9? Where would JJ and Lucasfilm really do? The answers are both conflicting. The Fans want to see Finn take on a bigger part in 9. Such as to understanding why Finn left the first order, did Finn hear the screams when the Star Killer base destoryed Hozzion system. Why did Kylo looked at Finn in the beginning of the movie. What is Finn last name who is his family? What is Finn relationship with Rey? Is he still chasing her if so why? Is Finn force sensitive and this reason why he connect with Rey in TFA.

    Lucas-film outtake for Finn in 9 will be make sure he does not step outside the boundaries and have a better role than Rey. If there a scene where John's acting is better than Daisy Ridley then cut those scenes. Make sure we get a lot of Rose Tico scenes when there scenes with Rey and Kylo.

    This what we going to get in 9 with Finn we can find the answer in the Twlight movies, Finn is Jake, Rey is Belia and Kylo is Eric . Belia see Jakes as a friend and love him as a good friend while her heart loves Eric. This is what I have seen with this new star wars trilogy.

    What Disney should do in 9 with FInn, let Finn take on a Faceoff with Kyo Ren again but this time allow FInn to shine as he should as force senstive. While Finn and Kylo Fights let it be over Rey, and when Finn gets the upper hand allow Rey to come to Kylo aid and to his defense. Then there be true tention between Rey and Finn friends becoe enemies. As Obi One and Anakin Skywalker as Vader fights, and mix between their battle Mace Windu fighting Darth Sidious this be Finn and Supreme leader Kylo fighting, as Windu got the hands up to Sidious , Anakin came to Sidious aid and cut off Windo's hand in such let this be Rey and Kylo and Rey submits to the dark side of Kylo Ren, and let Rey and battle Finn. Rey wanting to save him from Finn, and Finn wanting to destory Supreme Leader Kylo because of the great evil and threat he is. Rey and Finn battle it out I like to see the movie end on that note.

    Leading a Stormtrooper revolution would be awesome and the perfect bigger part for him.

    This was shown at the beginning of TFA. Furthermore he tells Rey why he left the FO.

    Kylo felt the conflict within Finn.

    Doesn't matter. We don't even know what's his first name.

    They're friends.

    No.

    This is a joke, right?

    He's not force sensitive! And I think he already shined against Kylo in TFA.

    JJ's the one that set up in TFA that "Finn would be a Big Deal in the Resistance." Basically implying that Finn would actually become what he was originally lying about.

    So I see JJ finishing the story he set up.

    Disney made Luke Skywalker a hermit who disconnect from the force, made Liea fly in the sky, took a fight scene with Rey and one of the guards and made his weapon disappeared in the middle of the fight. They can make Finn force sensitive lol

    But Finn doesn't need to be FS to be special... Let him be his own character. It's much more interesting to have him as non FS fighter.

    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 25, 2018, Original Post Date: Jul 25, 2018 ---
    They want to save 9 bring back Luke make Luke the person behind Snoke. Make Luke the puppet Master behind Snoke and using him as a frontman, in 9 Luke come out as being the real Supreme leader of the FO in the middle of the movie. This will explain why he turn his back to the JEdi way. Make Luke and Rey relationship as in Rey is Luke's daughter and he put her on Jakku for her to be mad and angry and have a harsh life and he use this to make her come to the Dark Side. Kylo Ren when he seen he was played as a fool by Snoke and Luke, this makes him turn to the light but when Luke sense this he goes to kill him and this is when Rey being conflicted goes all out to kill Luke.

    We can see this in 8 when Luke was dealing with Rey, and not nurturing her so it can drive her to the Dark side All this time he was looking to make Rey his new apprentice. So how he set that trap, he used Finn. Finn parents can be two light side users, or even Luke's son who mother was a light side user. or two other people was his parents and they both was two light side users, and Luke killed them and took Finn as a child and set him to learn to be a Storm Trooper and used his skills as force sentive but never developed. But he used Finn to fish out Rey, but Finn does not know this, and in TFA when we see Finn conflicted it was Luke freeing his mind, the light side of him so he can turn on the first order and go and fish out Rey. This be the reason why Finn helped Poe escaped. Kylo Ren all this time thinking Snoke was really the leader but if was Luke along. Luke sense Kylo is weak and the light is pulling him back to the light, this is why Luke wants a new student that is Rey who the darkside of her is pulling her. So as Kylo Ren kills this shell of Snoke, and Kylo now things he the new leader, Luke comes takes his place of the Leader of the First order. This when Rey is shocked when she see Luke comes back but this time as a Sith, and he reveals to conflicted Rey he is her father this is where Rey turns, by Kylo Ren trys to save her and Luke kill Kyo Ren as a traitor, but Kylo finds a way to escape with losing a limb. When Luke cut off his hand Luke has a flash back of his father vader missing a hand and also when his father cuts his hand. This in Luke's mind forecasting that Kylo Ren is now the threat. Kylo escape and he gets with Finn, and Poe and the Resistance, Finn see what happens to Kylo see that he turns to the light, and Kylo Ren making up what he did to Finn he teach him the way of the force and by the end of 9 enter into 10 Kylo Ren, Finn combat Sith Lord Luke Skywalker as he mirrors his father VAder but on a throne next to him is his new apprentice Rey. Kylo needs to kill Luke and Finn wants to save Rey and bring her back to the light and Kylo and Finn try this.

    So you want to "destroy" Luke's character even more? Many people won't like that.
