John Boyega, who played Finn in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, has said that he has “moved on” from the franchise.
The Star Wars sequel trilogy has received a less than ideal reception from fans, critics, and even select stars from the movies themselves. Finn actor John Boyega has been vocal about his thoughts on the sequel trilogy, particularly around the final two films in the trilogy. In the past, he’s thrown shade at one of The Last Jedi‘s most memorable lines and at The Rise of Skywalker romance between Kylo Ren and Rey. His larger issues with the trilogy stem from the choices that were made which saw Finn get sidelined.
Just like the fans who feel that Star Wars has nothing left to say, John Boyega has said that he has “moved on” from the franchise. After posting a picture of himself back on set, a fan asked the star if he’d ever return to the role of Finn. Boyega responded by saying ““lol no thank you. I’ve moved on.” with a heart emoji tacked on at the end.
John Boyega has recieved some cruel comments from Star Wars fans over the years. Back in 2014, Boyega received received racist comments for his casting as a black stormtrooper in The Force Awakens. After he called out the romance in The Rise of Skywalker, some fans sent him toxic comments. After all the negativity that has come from the Finn role, Boyega seems to have made peace with the fact that he has left the franchise behind.
