John Boyega just teased a key plot line in Star Wars Episode VIII

Going into Star Wars Episode VIII we want to find out who Rey’s parents are more than anything else. But we’re also interested to see if there’s going to be any romance between some of the new characters introduced in the last film.

Abrams’s Star Wars did not explore either of these potential romances, but Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII might bring us some answers.

At least, that’s what John Boyega teased in a fresh interview. More →
