John Boyega Feels His Time As Finn In Star Wars Is Over

John Boyega Feels His Time As Finn In Star Wars Is Over. It’s an end of a era, as the next and final installation of the Skywalker Saga for Star Wars comes to an end. But does this mean an end for our favorite characters who are not a Skywalker?

It has been announced previously that Lucasfilm and Disney will be taking a break from filming any more Star Wars featured films after the release of Star Wars Episode IX. The main reasons being and an over saturation of Star Wars films in the box office as well as the poor responses to the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. But what does this mean for the other characters in the Star Wars franchise? For John Boyega, he seems to think his time is up for good as our favorite rogue stormtrooper, Finn. Check out what he had to say in a recent interview with MTV News.

During an interview with Josh Horowitz at the Star Wars Celebration 2019, John Boyega was asked: “Do you think you’re ever gonna play this character [Finn] again?” Boyega paused for a beat before answering: “Honestly… Honestly, the bottom of my heart, I don’t think I am. I don’t think I am. I feel like it’s– I really do feel that way.” He went on to state: “This really is that movie, I think everyone doesn’t believe it, but this is that war that just ends everything.”

This comes as a bit of a surprisedly open response, due to the normally very strict secret keeping by both filmmakers and actors that is usually associated with the Star Wars films. Though John gave nothing away in regards to his character or details of the film, this does beg the question, why does he feel this way? Does Finn make it through Episode IX? Will there be a happy ending to the Skywalker saga? Was a production possibly in the works, but Boyega wants to move on from the role?

Unfortunately we may not get more insight on these burning questions until the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker theatrical release in December 2019.
