John Boyega gives conditions for returning to Star Wars franchise: ‘You ain’t going to Disney+ me!’


John Boyega says he won’t be seen in Disney+ projects – but would be willing to return to the Star Wars universe in feature films.

The actor, who portrays Finn in the movies, was asked by Variety what it would take for him to appear in the franchise again.

“In what?” he responded according to the publication, adding: “You ain’t going to Disney+ me!”

Boyega is also quoted as saying: “I ain’t getting no Disney+! I’m watching it, though, but I’ll stay in the feature films.”

Disney acquired LucasFilm, the studio responsible for the Star Wars franchise, in 2012.

The Mandalorian, a Star Wars series starring Pedro Pascal, premiered on Disney+ on 12 November and has already become a fan favourite.

Ewan McGregor is also set to return to the franchise as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a special Disney+ series.

Boyega told Variety he would be willing to reprise his role as Finn in another Star Wars film “as long as Daisy [Ridley] and Oscar [Isaac] are down for it”.

Isaac, however, said that he views the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker, the final instalment in Star Wars’ sequel trilogy, as “the closing of a chapter of my life”.

Ridley expressed a similar sentiment, saying she was unsure whether ”anything could top this one”.

The Rise of Skywalker will be released in the UK on 19 October and in the US on 20 October.
