Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit theaters everywhere this weekend, which means the cast’s press tour has wrapped up. It’s also the end of an era for the fans as well as the actors with the new movie marking the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga, which began back in 1977. John Boyega, who plays Finn in the latest trilogy, has been posting lots of fun footage from his press tour, and his latest video shows him and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) hilariously struggling through an interview deep into their tour.

“In our defence, it was week four of the press tour and we were starting to lose it,” Boyega wrote.
As you can see, the video shows Boyega claiming that “the war” is his favorite part of the new movie, which causes Isaac to joking reply that his favorite part is the stars. Boyega meant the final battle of the film, but it’s clear he’s definitely “starting to lose it.”
