ABC News has the full story.
John Boyega, who says his character Finn has a lot of scenes with Fisher’s General (formerly Princess) Leia, explains that the sendoff for the “Star Wars” icon will be “amazing.”
“We really enjoyed each other’s company,” Boyega told Travers of working with Fisher. “I was in Nigeria when we found out [about her death]. It was a strange, strange feeling. I felt like everyone in the cast went silent for a bit after that … [But] this movie, it sends her off in an amazing, amazing way.”
Fisher, 60, died last December after suffering cardiac arrest on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
