John Boyega Says The Last Jedi Brings A Different Kind Of Energy

Though J.J. Abrams managed to successfully reawaken the Star Wars franchise with The Force Awakens, a lot of fans criticized the films for the similarities it shares with A New Hope. With fans left worrying that the same might happen with Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi, John Boyega continues to promise fans that everything's going to be okay by talking about how unique The Force Awakens sequel is.

Boyega went on an interview with Entertainment Weekly while doing the press rounds for Detroit, and in the discussion the stormtooper-turned-resistance-fighter decided to drop a few words about The last Jedi.

"Being a different person comes with a different energy, a different perspective, and Rian definitely has his own unique style. Rian is just fun. Rian is just a fun guy. I have a feeling he is Santa Claus. I think Santa Claus is a part time director when it comes to December. He grows out the beard then does his thing, because he just so giving, he's cheerful on set, and it's always a fun time."


Johnson's been known for his unique take on films, and it's pretty funny how Boyega equates him with Santa Claus (because you know, The Last Jedi premieres in December). We hope that all this talk about The Force Awakens sequel being one of the most unique films in the franchise really pays off.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinemas December15, 2017.
