It’s never too early to look ahead, right?!

Speaking in an interview with the British edition of Vogue, the actor called the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII “much darker” than the recently-released flick!

He also said of his personal role in it, it might require some extra muscle! He explained:

“My part in the next film will be much more physical so I might be in the gym a bit more.”


We’re going to have quite a bit of time to see what that means — the Rian Johnson-helmed Episode VIII won’t hit theaters until May 26, 2017 — but it sure leads to a LOT of possibilities…
