‘Last Jedi’ Star: The First Order is Like Working at McDonald’s


At some point in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Finn and new character Rose will be sneaking around disguised as members of the First Order. And now, John Boyega says Finn going back to the people he betrayed is like working for McDonald’s again after a prior incident.

“Well, it’s like imagine you work at McDonald’s,” Boyega told IGN in an interview published on Tuesday. “You push your manager into a chute compactor and then a year later you decide to go back dressed as one of the colleagues. It’s not the best situation.”

Regarding what exactly he and Rebel Rose — played by Kelly Marie Tran — are doing there and how he’ll handle himself, Boyega continued: “There’s a lot of chasing, there’s a mission that needs to be completed but that isn’t necessarily something that doesn’t come without a fight and it’s something that he’s gonna have to face for himself.”

If Finn has even half the power of a disgruntled food service worker, he’ll probably do just fine in The Last Jedi.

John Boyega will next appear in Detroit, which opens on August 4, this Friday. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 15.
