New Details Emerge on Finn's Mission and a Cameo in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'


If you hope to go into Star Wars: The Last Jedi with as little knowledge as humanly possible, it might be a good time to turn away. New details have come up this week specifically regarding the nature of Finn's mission, as well as information on a new spaceshift and a cameo.

The news comes from Making Star Wars, as seems to usually be the case, and the site has a strong history of accuracy when it comes to these stories. For now, we won't claim that the information below is 100% accurate, but it is something to ponder.

The report firstly talks about the latest shift in the First Order fleet, called the new Super Star Destroyer. It sounds as though it's a sleeker, more upgraded version of what came in The Force Awakens: "In Star Wars: The Last Jedi there is going to be a First Order Super Star Destroyer. However, it isn’t like the ones we saw during the Empire’s era. The First Order Super Star Destroyer is huge, yes, but is just a triangle-shaped wedge. The classic Super Star Destroyer was a wedge with a city built on it in no uncertain terms. This is just a gigantic huge wedge, solid, and dark. I speculate this is the main command ship of the First Order in The Last Jedi. It appears Finn will end up on this ship as part of his mission."

The article then goes on to discuss that Finn will be undercover as a First Order officer with the possibility of him working toward planting explosives and potentially with the aid of Kelly Marie Tran's character.

The site also indicates that Tom Hardy will cameo as a stormtrooper who recognises Finn and thinks his co-worker has received a promotion within the First Order, as has previously been rumoured. It seems to be a developing, humorous trend, as it follows Daniel Craig's cameo as a stormtrooper getting mind tricked by Rey in The Force Awakens.

All of this can be taken with a handful of salt, so for now we'll just keep staring at that December 15, 2017 date on the calendar.
