In a recent interview with Vogue magazine, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega shared a few tidbits about the upcoming untitled sequel, Star Wars: Episode VIII. He has teased, that his character will have an even greater physical presence in the upcoming film, and shared a teaser of things to come. Boyega says, “[The script is] great. Much darker, but we’re very excited… My part in the next film will be much more physical so I might be in the gym a bit more.”
There is still some debate as to whether or not Boyega possesses any latent Force powers, but even if he doesn’t, it still sounds like we will get to see lots of action for the character. Although it might not be specifically Jedi related.
