We’ve spoken before of Finn’s role specifically in the Skywalker family arc, and how his future is heavily foreshadowed to interweave with them as Han Solo’s did before him–but what about where he came from before the beginning of The Force Awakens? In this article, I make a case for a backstory for Finn that both adds depth to his past, and gives meaning to his future.
Although Finn and Rey were initially billed as the two leads of the new Star Wars trilogy, it feels to many as though Finn’s storyline has fallen to the wayside. Here we offer an interpretation of how Finn’s character is still central to the story of the Skywalker Saga, and a prediction for his role in relation to the family moving forward.
For this post I have attempted to take images from the trailers and behind the scenes footage and put them in chronological order and interspersed the images with my plot prediction for the Last Jedi.
Here’s my fifth and final plot outline. A couple of changes in this one. The biggest is moving Finn and Rose back to the Supremacy and Poe leading the destruction of the Dreadnought. Based on reports, it appears Poe advocates something extreme.
This is based on my full background theory.
