In Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker, director JJ Abrams is aiming to not just end the new trilogy on a high note, but flesh out the characters are much as possible. That includes answering a lot of questions about Finn.
When we met Finn in Episode VII, he was a part of the First Order, but defected (with help from Poe and Rey) to the Resistance. And even though certain comics helped show things like his training to be a Stormtrooper, we don’t know much about him. Abrams notes this will change:
The director stated, “It is part of the story of this one… And it was alluded to inÂ Episode VII, but there’s a bit more light shed on that in this one.”
He went on to explain that Rey and Poe would be explored as well, though he clarified, “I’m not saying we get full, exhaustive downloads on all of their childhoods…Â But there are a lot of questions about Finn’s past, about Poe’s past, obviously Rey and Kylo, and then some of the new characters we meet.”
