“It’s a different take, darker, bigger,” said Boyega.

“Rian Johnson is great. It’s a different take, darker, bigger. Someone will say: ‘How do you get bigger than Force Awakens? But it’s crazy,” Boyega said.

He also revealed about the equation his and Daisy Ridley’s character, Rey, will share in the next movie.

“I mean, we didn’t establish a romance in seven; we never played it that way. Daisy and I, we’re friends.

“Finn and Rey – they’re just friends. Finn is a stormtrooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on. So the romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next instalment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go,” he said.
