Here at MakingStarWars.net we initially broke that John Boyega was a Stormtrooper a few weeks ago. Then we thought maybe it was a bit off for a few reasons. Well now Badass Digest is reporting the same thing we did a few weeks back on top of their huge news from this morning:
As others have said, Boyega plays a storm trooper. A storm trooper who basically deserts and teams up with Daisy Ridley’s character.
Now we have more confirmation on Boyega being a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: Episode VII. It certainly doesn’t hurt to hear it from another source, especially after a certain Star Wars Rebels character has some similar qualities and attributes.
Badass Digest also says:
the Boyega stuff has been repeated and confirmed to me by so many people now that it’s almost comical.
The sand planet we keep seeing might not be Tatooine according to Badass Digest:
One last, last thing: one of my sources tells me that the desert planet in Episode VII is not Tatooine.
It does have water as we’ve seen. The dunes look just like Tatooine though. I wonder if it is another planet in the same system or something?
Either way, it is nice to see another site backing up what we reported and got a lot grief over, honestly.
