John Boyega might be reprising his role as Finn in the next Star Wars movie

Whenever Disney and Star Wars find themselves in the same sentence, you already know the results will be polarizing at best and horrifically underwhelming at worst. Barring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first two seasons of the Mandalorian and Andor, every Disney Star Wars property has caused massive rifts within the fandom and been the subject of intense debate and scrutiny. And when it comes to polarizing Star Wars projects, no series of films fit the bill better than Disney's disastrous sequel trilogy. 

Dissecting what went wrong with Disney's sequel trilogy of Star Wars movies is like breaking down the Zapruder film. One of the trilogies' most egregious failures relates to the series' handling of John Boyega's character Finn. Arriving with one of the most interesting backstories ever conceived in a Star Wars film, Finn seemed like he was going to become a massive player in the universe during his debut in The Force Awakens. And then he just kind of faded into the background. 

According to, John Boyega has been rumored to return as Finn for Daisy Ridley's recently announced Star Wars films. 

A John Boyega Star Wars return could happen in the future, according to a new report that suggests the actor has mended fences with Lucasfilm and will be in the new Star Wars movie with Daisy Ridley.

During the most recent episode of The Hot Mic Podcast, insider John Rocha noted that he had heard from various sources that Boyega will be returning to the world in the movie starring Rey Skywalker.

"I'll tell you this," said Rocha. "I'll break this for myself. According to some sources I know, different sources, have reached out to me because of this show. And they have said to me, that according to them and what they're hearing, is that John Boyega will be coming back for this movie."

Rocha went on to note that problems Boyega may have had with the Star Wars franchise have been smoothed over after Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Boyega had a conversation recently. The upcoming film will reportedly see Rey try and honor her commitment to Luke Skywalker by rebuilding the Jedi Order.
