    Luke will be back as a force ghost. There is no need for him to come back in the flesh. It serves no purpose to the continuation of the story. I understand that some people are unhappy with the way Luke was portrayed in TLJ. That is their prerogative. I’m not sure that making him evil does anything to correct that. It might make it worse.

    Won't happen but at least you presented an original idea. At least it's Finn speculation that doesn't stop at "He'll do something (generic) for the Resistance" or involve "Stormtrooper rebellion!" You get an 'E' for effort.

    That hair pretty much screams "Time Jump". So, Finn got time to do his hair? The Resistance isn't doing bad therefore.

    If his hair is anything like this the next movie then he may not be a member of the Resistance. It doesn't say military. It says he is his own man.

    The Resistance isn't really a military group. They are rebels and rebels are "scruffy" looking. I would agree with you when Finn was still a member of the FO though.

    Maybe Rose or Rey did it. ;)

    Their Vice Admiral and their General wear practically evening gowns at the battle stations. No one is going to blink at Finn's hair. I think this will be more about embracing his individuality after First Order groupthink. This also indicates time jump. The first two movies took place over a couple of weeks, such individual development - unconnected to the bigger picture - wasn't possible. But, after a few years? The kids can find their own style and groove. Well, maybe not Poe - he was military even before Resistance and he is older. Even Rey had some modicum of freedom on Jakku. But, Finn especially can discover a whole lot of things about himself.

    Also, I hope the costume shows off those muscles.

    He can't be his own individual if he doesn't take the time to know where he comes from. Anytning else is shallow to only serve the interests of the group. Using anything Rian did as an example is bad because he doesn't know or care to know Star Wars. Holdo was a symbol more than a character.
    --- Double Post Merged, Aug 1, 2018 ---
    That's Han. Not the Resistance. All the Resistance people looked the same and dressed the same. Their clothes may not have been the cleanest, but each group had their own clothes, so I will say that's false.

    But he already knows where he comes from... He was born into the FO and trained there. He was a product of war without any indiviuality. But by the the help of Poe, Rey and the Resistance he became an independent man.

    They do?

    In TFA Finn wasn't a part of the Resistance, during the events of TLJ he became a part of them. In IX he will probably have a leading role in the Resistance.

    I'd like to believe that Finn has more class.

    Wow, so a big ‘up yours’ to all the adopted kids of the world I guess. They can never be individuals because they don’t know where they come from. Too bad for them :rolleyes:

    I guess I can assume that we'll never know anything about Finn's backstory. I guess we'll have to wait for that stand alone film some 30 to 40 years from now.

    Okay then. How long has it been since Finn left the F.O.? A week or two at the most. He spent more time in the coma as a free man than actually being free. Now he wakes up, and never having any time for himself he is going to give that up for another organization? We escape because we want to be free. To believe that you or any person would give up that freedom for another organization right away doesn't speak to our human nature.

    As far as adopted children. Adopted children can still have the option of knowing who their parents are. They can find out what their real last name is. Does Finn have that? Adopted children can still have a family that loves and support them. Does Finn have that?
    There are places you can go to find out more about your family. Where can Finn go? The only thing the Resistance has given Finn are people with bad attitudes and weapons that belong in a junkyard.

    Finn escaped because he didn’t want to be forced to kill for a purpose he didn’t believe in. That’s all we were actually presented with. He planned to run as far as he could because he believed that was the only possible way to keep out of the First Order’s path.

    Finn’s journey isn’t about some yearning to be free of all obligation and being allowed to roam the galaxy unfettered as he pleases. It’s about a reluctant hero overcoming his self-imposed limitations and becoming a champion of the people - a protector of those that can’t protect themselves. He’s not giving anything up. He’s making a conscious decision to follow his moral compass - to do what he believes is right.
    Some absolutely do not. A war orphan from some impoverished nation, for example, would likely never have the means to discover their parentage. Regardless, my point is that in actual reality, there are plenty living breathing individuals who have no idea where they came from or how they came to be, and they aren’t LESSER for it. Human beings are more than the sum of our parts. Our origins don’t define us. Who we are as people is informed by our choices and decisions and not dictated by the happenstance of our arbitrary origin. Someone whose parents are a total mystery to them is every bit as much a realized person as anyone else. Those people exist out there and they deserve to have someone to identify with too.
    He has Rey. He has Poe. He has Rose. He has his own adopted family now that love and support him.
    Which is still a tremendous upgrade from where he was at before, because it’s something he CHOSE. He made that decision on his own and that’s all that should matter for Finn, the free man.

    Correction: Finn was not born into the First Order, he was stolen from his family. He explains this in TFA.
