Our Finn, John Boyega, has reassured us that STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI will include an amazing sendoff for our beloved Space Mom.
While speaking with ABC, John Boyega opened up about filming Star Wars: The Last Jedi with Carrie Fisher. According to John, many of his scenes were actually with General Leia Organa, and the two “genuinely enjoyed each other’s company.”
Fisher’s unexpected death last years left fans undeniably shaken. “It was a strange, strange feeling,” John said. “I felt like everyone in the cast went silent for a bit after that.”
He did reassure us that Fisher’s sendoff will be “amazing” in the upcoming film, set for release on December 15, 2017. Regardless, Leia’s appearance will likely strike a deep chord with so many of us Star Wars fans. We miss you, Space Mom.
