John Boyega, Star Wars star, was spotted at Cannes Film Festival for the first time.
Variety caught up with The Force Awakens’ and Episodes VIII and IX star for a quick Q&A.
When asked if the next film will see his character become darker, Boyega said
“My skin color does because of the heat on the job! That’s me dodging your question because Disney has spies everywhere. If I answer this, I get killed, and I’m not in episode nine.”
and on working with Rian Johnson on Episode VIII compared to J.J Abrams on Episode VII
“It’s very easy. 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 is tied up to Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. The actor is also not afraid that his role in Star Wars will associate him with his character for the rest of his career saying “They will (stereotype), for the rest of my life, but it’s no big deal.”
Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled for a December 15, 2017 release.
