If the insiders at Making Star Wars are to be believed, it looks like John Boyega’s Finn will have a big part to play in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
Before we delve into the rumors, please note that there are possible spoilers ahead, so read at your own peril. The site -- which has been sharing reports on all things “Last Jedi" -- has revealed that Finn will use his First Order training in order to help aid the Resistance, and he might even appear aboard the First Order’s main command ship to do so.

The ship -- which is another Super Star Destroyer -- is described as “a gigantic huge wedge, solid, and dark.” If the rumors are true, Finn will disguise himself as a First Order officer in order to gain access to it. The report details how Finn will bump into a stormtrooper (played by Tom Hardy) who knew him, but isn't aware of what happened on Starkiller Base. Instead of trying to apprehend him, Hardy’s character instead congratulates him on his supposed promotion.
According to the report, Finn has one mission aboard the ship: to plant explosives. The report posits that the new ship could potentially be the main hub of the First Order, especially after their Starkiller Base was destroyed. However, the report doesn't go into specifics about who runs the ship.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, “The Last Jedi,” stars returning actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis, and is set to open on December 15.
