The character of Finn, played by John Boyega, was introduced in the Disney Star Wars trilogy. At first sight, the repenting stormtrooper was liked by a large number of fans. Is a return to the silver screen possible?
Not if it’s up to the actor himself. Boyega currently has no plans to return in his role as Finn. He considers himself more suitable for the versatile roles that he now plays.
In an interview with SiriusXM, he states about a possible return: “Right now I don’t need it. I’m fine not being a part of it anymore. I think Finn is at a point where you can enjoy him in other things like the games and animations.”
He continues: “Episodes seven through nine were enough for me.” Boyega had also previously criticized how his character was written. He felt that after his first heroic appearance, the character was pushed too far into the background for the other two films.
Boyega has na Star Wars certainly not idle. His next film, They Cloned Tyrone, will hit Netflix in 2023.
