When Monaghan’s casting was first introduced, the actor tried to play it cool when he was requested about particulars on the Distraction Pieces podcast.
“[Director] J.J. [Abrams] is a pal of mine and he mentioned to me that at some level I’d get the chance to learn the script,” Monaghan explained. “[He told me], ‘Just be aware of the fact that there are massive sequences in Act Two, there are massive sequences in Act Three but because we’re taking pictures Act One first, I’ve put you in there and also you appear to not be round as a lot in Act Two and Act Three however that’s as a result of that’s what we’re doing first so I would like you right here, I would like you invested. So learn the script however simply know there will not be lengthy till there’ll be a re-draft of these issues and we’ll see you a bit of bit extra’. So I learn it, and the script is superb and clearly there isn’t loads I can say.”
Does this imply that his character dies early on? Of course it is not possible to say at this level, however the brand new movie probably will proceed to deal with the narrative established within the earlier movies and never focus a lot on Monaghan’s new position within the saga. So do not be shocked if his Resistance member is a casualty within the warfare towards the First Order.
