The 35-year-old actor - who plays General Hux in the science fiction franchise - believes working on the ninth instalment is a lot different than 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'.

Speaking to Express Online, he said: "Between the Star Wars films, there's a different energy between JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson. I've been really lucky with the people I've worked with. That's the joy, getting to change it up."

Domhnall previously expressed his excitement at J.J. Abrams directing the ninth movie.

Speaking before he could officially confirm he was in the movie, he said: "I can't speak from any perspective except for the fact as somebody who likes the movies because it's not been disclosed to anybody - because obviously nobody knows what's going to happen with 'The Last Jedi' - whether I'll be involved in that film or not. So I don't think of it as somebody who's necessarily involved or not involved, that's just its own thing.

"But, you know, I think it's very bad for Colin but if that was - but if the right thing to do is to part company, the most right thing to do is the same in any relationship, you know? That happens. And then with J.J., he's a great director. I think that he did a brilliant job on the first one and it makes absolute sense why after they parted company with Colin that was the place they looked and I think it's very exciting for the fans of the film that he's back."
