This image released by Lucasfilm shows John Boyega as Finn in a scene from the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," expected in theaters in December.  (Industrial Light & Magic/Lucasfilm via AP)They're not exactly the "Star Wars" version of Bill and Ted, but in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Finn (John Boyega) and new character Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) will be off on their own excellent adventure, while Rey (Daisy Ridley) is busy training with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

Finn was left unconscious after "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," but don't worry, despite Boyega's trolling to fans, Finn will not stay asleep the whole time.

However, the actor explained to Entertainment Weekly that recovering from a lightsaber wound is different from a normal wound, so fans shouldn't expect a quick and easy recovery for Finn:

"Once it's in, it continues to burn the skin and the cells. It's not a piece of flame that whacks your body. It's not something that works like a stab wound. It's really brutal. Finn's in a bad way at the end of VII. He has a lot of issues. He got slashed with a saber, and that took him down real hard, so he's in a coma. [...] It's a grounding injury. It's going to take him some time to get back on the ball. But when he does... oh, he does."

Star Wars CelebrationWhen he does get back on the ball, Finn will embark on a new quest with Resistance mechanic Rose Tico. Here's more from Boyega to EW:

"It's Finn and Rose, they're on a massive adventure. It's a big mission they need to complete. The Resistance is under immense pressure, and it's time for them to get a bit of help. That's where Finn and Rose come in, and they're thrust into a crazy adventure."

We're ready to go along for the ride! "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" opens in theaters December 15. Read a lot more details from Vanity Fair (and check out their amazing covers).
