We don’t know the fate of any of the characters from ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘ but a new quote by John Boyega makes it sound as if his character might not make it out alive. We’ve recently heard from Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy that “there’s no question that there’s certain characters that we’ve created certainly in the last three movies that we may very well wanna see down the line in the future.” This clearly indicates that many of the characters could appear again either in comics, books, animated shows, films, or even Disney+ shows.
However, Boyega doesn’t sound confident of another outing as the character as he was asked if he’d be reprising his role down the line and shared that:
“Honestly, the bottom of my heart, I don’t think I am. I don’t think I am. I feel like it’s–I really do feel that way.”
This could mean that Finn either parts way with The Resistance at the end of the film to start a normal life which he’s never had the opportunity to have or a darker take is that he doesn’t survive the upcoming battle with the First Order. He did clarify that it wasn’t from a lack of interest either:
“Honestly, no, seriously, I just–this is really that movie, I think everyone doesn’t believe it, but this is that war that just ends everything. So I’m just like, wow, you know?”

As future films are set for a galaxy far, far away, both in the past and likely after the events of this film combined with Kennedy’s comments above, it is clear more is to come. Only time will tell if we see Finn again, but it isn’t sounding hopeful.
