John Boyega Says He's "Open" to Returning to 'Star Wars' Universe.

John Boyega is open to the possibility of returning to the Star Wars universe as the actor says he's down to return to the franchise.

Boyega's comments come after he had aired his frustrations over the way his character was diminished in subsequent films following his debut in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With time giving Boyega a chance to reflect, he’s open to exploring any opportunity that comes his way.

Earlier this year, he gave comments saying he’d come to terms with his work on the film, telling a British outlet the "fun times, good times, ugly times, bad times, it makes you who you are".

Cut to a recent pre-strike interview he gave to Tech Radar to promote Netflix’s new film "They Cloned Tyrone" where he says he hasn’t closed the door on a return to the Finn role:

"That those comments was a few years ago, so they were the subject of that particular project. But I’m open to all characters and scripts that are enjoyable, have a great cast attached, and a terrific director. So yeah, I’m open to all opportunities."

The comments come as we know his co-star Daisy Ridley is returning as Rey for a "New Jedi Order" film set fifteen years after "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" and aims to shoot in the UK sometime next year ahead of a December 2025 release.

In 2020, Boyega detailed his experience with the Star Wars sequels, revealing some frustration with how the character was handled and how part of the fanbase and the industry as a whole treated him. Now, the actor notes that those comments were about "that particular project," and that he is willing to return to Star Wars as Finn under a 2terrific director" and with a "great cast attached."
