When fans first saw the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they were introduced to the first new character of the trilogy, Finn a.k.a FN287, a stormtrooper who looked distressed in the middle of the desert. Ever since, fans have come to love John Boyega's character, but we could be saying goodbye to Finn earlier than we expected.

Boyega told MTV News that he thinks The Rise of Skywalker will be Finn's last appearance in the Star Wars franchise, and doesn't think he'll play the character again after the final chapter of the Skywalker saga premieres.

"Honestly, the bottom of my heart, I don't think I am," Boyega said when asked about reprising his role as Finn in the future. "I don't think I am. I feel like it's--I really do feel that way."

Boyega's reveal doesn't mean he doesn't want to play the ex-stormtrooper again. It suggests the events of Rise of Skywalker bring about a great conclusion for Finn's story.

"Honestly, no, seriously, I just--this is really that movie, I think everyone doesn't believe it, but this is that war that just ends everything," Boyega continued. "So I'm just like, wow, you know?"

Boyega also said that Rise of Skywalker will answer all of fans questions about the saga.

With how frequently Star Wars resurrects its characters, fans shouldn't count anything out yet. There's always the possibility that we could see Finn down the line.
