In a resurfaced clip from an interview conducted by Jake’s Takes in 2020 (via Twitter user @PalpyYT), John Boyega who played “Finn” in the Star Wars universe, says it would be a “no-brainer” if President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy, filmmaker J.J. Abrams, and the rest of the old team were involved.
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.
“And I think everybody would. I think even Oscar, even Daisy. I think everybody would be kind of like, if we are going to come back, hopefully, the story is worth us coming back. Or maybe, perhaps, some new characters that we help and we facilitate.”
John Boyega has been pretty open about his negative opinions about the treatment of his character in the Star Wars universe so these comments will definitely come as a surprise to many.
There’s always a wealth of potential stories to be found in Star Wars, whether it’s through live-action, animation, television, comics, or novels. With John Boyega being much more open to a return, it’s possible we may see more of Finn in the future.
