“I guess in the original Star Wars films there was much more of a trio feel where it was essentially about Luke’s journey, but Han and Leia there was a strong dynamic. Which I think, I don’t know how quickly we’re going to be able to establish that long-term dynamic with [Episode] IX,” he said.
“But if it’s exploring that dynamic, then that would be cool.
“I do feel even after three films still, we don’t know them as much as we got to know Han, Luke, Leia. And maybe that’s a great opportunity to get to know them a little bit more.”
Boyega also expressed scepticism as to Finn’s character arc in The Last Jedi, the second instalment in the sequel trilogy, directed by Rian Johnson.
“The Force Awakens I think was the beginning of something quite solid, The Last Jedi if I’m being honest I’d say that was feeling a bit iffy for me,” he said.
“I didn’t necessarily agree with a lot of the choices in that and that’s something that I spoke to Mark [Hamill] a lot about and we had conversations about it. And it was hard for all of us, because we were separated.”
The Rise of Skywalker, the final chapter in the sequel trilogy, will be released on 19 December in the UK and 20 December in the US.
