John Boyega talks role in ‘Star Wars 8’ which is ‘much darker’

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has broken a ton of records at the box office, but fans are looking ahead to Rogue One and Episode VIII. Star John Boyega talked with Vogue about the new chapter.

“[We’re] just starting work on ‘Star Wars VIII,’ the next film, so I’m back to keeping secrets again,” Boyega said in the interview. “It’s great. Much darker, but we’re very excited.”

Boyega also didn’t say whether or not his fight with Kylo Ren will leave him with any cybernetic enhancements, but he did reveal he has a “more physical” role in the sequel.

“No, for [Force Awakens] we really just took it scene by scene, there wasn’t a huge regime,” Boyega continues.

“My part in the next film will be much more physical so I might be in the gym a bit more.”

Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Peter Mayhew are all set to reprise their roles from Force Awakens.

Star Wars: Episode VIII opens May 26, 2017.
