John Boyega shared with fans on social media that he is putting the “Star Wars” franchise behind him and eager to move on from his character Finn. Responding to fan demand to see Finn pop up in the next “Star Wars” movie (via Variety), Boyega wrote, “Lol no thank you. I’ve moved on.” The actor added to another fan, “I’m not into playing one role for too long. I have more to offer than that. That’s all.” Boyega played Finn in three “Star Wars” films between 2015 and 2019.
While Boyega has been outspoken about his issues with the “Star Wars” franchise, he stressed the only reason he’s disinterested in returning as Finn in the future is because he’s played the character for so long. The actor said he’s not against reprising characters as long as there’s been enough time in between playing the role. One role he’d be keen on returning to is Moses in “Attack the Block.” As Boyega told a fan, “I haven’t played Moses in over a decade. I’d love to revisit him. Now he is a badass.”
