STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Actor John Boyega Hints At A Time Jump For Next Year’s EPISODE IX

Pacific Rim: Uprising star John Boyega’s comments about his Star Wars character in a recent interview have hinted at the possibility of a time jump for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX. Check it out…

The Last Jedi was something of an anomaly among Star Wars films, beginning almost moments after the close of The Force Awakens in lieu of the usual jump in time. However, following the events of Rian Johnson's film as well as the real-life passing of Carrie Fisher, many assumed that we'll have a somewhat significant time-jump for this closing chapter of the Skywalker Saga.

In a recent interview with Yahoo! Finance, star John Boyega spoke about the effect that joining the sci-fi franchise has had on his life, and also dropped this little bit of information about the upcoming film:

"I can't wait to start shooting the next and final leg of the franchise. The first step is growing out my hair, so you can wait for the trailer to see why."

A change in haircut has been something a surprisingly vocal amount of Star Wars fans have wanted for Boyega's character, so they're sure to be happy. What's more, seeing Finn with longer hair is an easy way to denote the passage of time.

Whether this is the sole reason remains to be seen. Maybe the Resistance has been on the run or perhaps this indicates an added growth for the character; now allowing personality and taste to dictate his hair rather than the regimented style he's had in the series thus far.

All that is pure speculation at this point, however. We'll have to wait until 20th December 2019 to find out if a significant amount of time has passed, and what major events, if any, have occurred between movies
