star wars Actor John Boyega has revealed he still isn’t interested in returning to the iconic franchise.
In 2015, Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters and turned its new cast members into household names. One of the main characters from the film’s perspective was John Boyega’s Fin; a former First Order stormtrooper who left to join the Resistance. However, Boyega’s time with the franchise wasn’t exactly the best as the character’s role was reduced to that of a supporting character as the series progressed.
In the past, John Boyega has criticized the star wars franchise. The actor criticized Lucasfilm and Disney for their handling of Finn’s story and said he left the franchise. Now the actor has doubled down on this position.
In a recent interview on SiriusXM’s Tell Me Everything With John Fugelsang, John Boyega said he was okay with quitting the star wars character behind:
“At this point, I’m cool. I’m dealing well with it. To be fair, [with] the allies I found in Joel Taylor and Jamie Foxx, Teyonah Parris, Viola Davis, all those people I worked with… versatility is my path. I think Finn is at a good point of confirmation where you can just appreciate him in other things, games, animation. But I feel like ‘[Episode] VII’ to ‘[Episode] IX’ was good for me.
