Here’s the latest from: Star Wars – The Direct :
The sequel trilogy remains a sizzling topic of discussion in the Star Wars community nearly three years after its conclusion, in no small part due to the words of actor John Boyega. Having brought Finn to life in the first cycle of films under the Disney umbrella, Boyega has been critical of both the direction the story took and his experiences on set as his character’s role deteriorated.
Such comments led to discussions with Disney executives and a phone call from Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and for the time being all parties have seemingly buried the hatchet. With Finn’s story currently finished in The Rise of Skywalker, Boyega has served as an ambassador for Star Wars. He continues to support the franchise’s endeavors and recently voiced approval for the support Moses Ingram received following racist online comments in the lead-up to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Though much is forgiven, Boyega isn’t without regrets – or designs of returning to the galaxy far, far away. Of late, the actor has been adamant that he won’t be donning a Resistance uniform again, in large part because he feels Finn’s story is finished. Boyega reaffirmed that position in a recent interview, and he shared some thoughts on places he’d liked to have seen the sequel trilogy go – most notably, with an iconic Jedi Master.
