The cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Mark Hamill, Kelly Marie Tran, John Boyega, and Daisy Ridley attend the panel for the movie during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration at Orange County Convention Center on Friday (April 14) in Orlando, Fla.
Director Rian Johnson, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy and panel moderator Josh Gad were also in attendance. At the panel, the cast was asked some questions about where the characters are in the new movie.
John was asked at the panel if Finn’s friendship with Poe would continue to blossom. He said, “Absolutely… Poe’s my boy. There’s always a new adventure for them to go on.”
“In The Last Jedi, it’s a test for all the characters, but specifically for Finn. He wants to find his place now,” John continued. “Is he going to be a part of the Resistance or is he going to keep running away from the First Order? We’ll see.”
Kelly was asked about her new character during the panel as well. “My character’s name is Rose. She’s part of the Resistance. And she works in maintenance, and I just can’t wait for you to meet her,” she said.
“To a certain extent it’s not Luke’s story anymore. But I think he’s an important part to the overall arc of the saga and again, there’s a lot of mystery about him, even within the film. You have to fill in your own backstory,” Mark added.
