Details for John Boyega’s Star Wars: Episode VII Character Revealed?

Warning: Potential spoilers for Star Wars: Episode VII…

On the heels of yesterday’s plot details, and this morning’s X-Wing reveal, Badass Digest is back with another new tidbit about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, specifically about actor John Boyega’s character in the film. Once again, potential spoiler warning.

The site reports that Boyega plays a Stormtrooper in the upcoming film who not only deserts his post but teams up with Daisy Ridley’s character, supposedly after finding the severed hand of Luke Skywalker. In addition, the site reveals that the desert planet seen throughout the behind-the-scenes videos for the film and in set photos is not Tatooine, as many have previously thought, but in fact another desert planet. What do you think of these new rumors?

Also starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Christina Chong, Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson, Star Wars: Episode VII will land in theaters on December 18, 2015.
