Star Wars alum John Boyega has recently stated that he would be willing to return to the franchise so long as JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy are involved.
Despite the actor revealing some of his displeasures working on the Sequels, it seems that Boyega hasn’t shut the door on Star Wars just yet.
Comments from a resurfaced interview with Boyega where the actor shedding light on his potential return:
“Whichever way, I am open to the conversation as long as it is Kathleen, J.J., and maybe someone else and the team, it’s a no-brainer.”
John Boyega’s Surprising Intrest In Returning To Star Wars
These comments have been fairly shocking to fans as Boyega has been pretty open about his disappointment with the handling of Finn and other diverse characters in the Sequel Trilogy:
“You knew what to do with these other people, but when it came to Kelly Marie Tran, when it came to John Boyega, you know f–k all.”
“So what do you want me to say? What they want you to say is, ‘I enjoyed being a part of it. It was a great experience…’ Nah, nah, nah. I’ll take that deal when it’s a great experience. They gave all the nuance to Adam Driver, all the nuance to Daisy Ridley. Let’s be honest. Daisy knows this. Adam knows this. Everybody knows. I’m not exposing anything.”
The actor has even previously stated that he has no plans to reprise his role as Finn saying:
“lol no thank you. I’ve moved on [heart emoji].“
So, only time will tell if we will get to see the character of Finn return at some point in the Star Wars series. It seems that if the right people are involved it could be possible.
