“I’m in this for the long haul,” she said.
“It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go out there and do it.”
For the first time in the new film, Washington will play a leading role in the film, with her husband, John Boyega, also playing the lead role.
She’ll also be seen with Boyega on a new episode of “Star Wars Rebels,” which will be premiering on Disney XD on Wednesday.
