John Boyega Discusses His Lightsaber In ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

star wars the force awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is one month away from release and in a recent interview with Empire Magazine John Boyega described his experiences getting the opportunity to wield a lightsaber in the film.

Man, the lightsaber came in this case. The guys brought it out and I’m like, ‘Now’s the moment, now’s the time.

He went on to describe how he felt in that moment holding it

I held it in my hand and I just felt, you know, the clouds open up and the white doves come flying down. It feels very, very good. I hugged it for the whole day. I didn’t allow anyone to hold it but me.

The subsequent question was whether or not he got to keep it

No, but we’re working on that…

It has been shown that Boyega is a huge fan of Star Wars so getting to do all of this has been a dream come true for the young actor. If I was in his shoes I would be feeling all the same emotions as he is.

Are you excited to see him wield a lightsaber? Let us know in the comments!
