“He Should’ve Been the Hero Instead of ‘Know-It-All’ Rey”: Star Wars Fans Support John Boyega’s Refusal To Return, Says Moses Ingram Controversy Opened His Eyes

The sequel trilogy of Star Wars has often been subjected to wide criticism by the fans as well as the critics for its bad storyline and underwhelming character arcs. While everyone expected it to be as superior as the previous movies, the new trilogy turned out to be a complete mess. Now according to some new reports, John Boyega who played Finn will no longer return to the franchise. Even though the sequel trilogy is now complete and the franchise needs some other storyline now to follow, it can be believed that Finn will not be spotted soon.

John Boyega’s reaction to racism in the Star Wars fandom

Besides the announcement of not entering the franchise once again, John Boyega also addressed the issue of racism in the fandom. He expressed that when he first entered the franchise, he also had to face the same fate due to the sudden diversity Disney decided to introduce in the films. But it was different back then as Disney didn’t handle it with the care they are doing now with Moses Ingram.

In the recent Obi-Wan Kenobi series, the Reva actress Moses Ingram had to face a lot of racist remarks. Even several others stars came in support of the actress when it went too much.

Addressing this issue, John Boyega stated that now he feels good about how the makers and the other cast members handled the issue and came forward to support Ingram:

“That’s the peace that I felt. Moses Ingram being protected makes me feel protected. Do you understand what I’m saying? It makes me feel like, ‘Okay, cool. I am not the elephant in the room.’ Because when I started, it wasn’t really a conversation you could bring up. You know how they went through it. It was kind of like, ‘Let’s just be silent.’ It wasn’t a conversation you could bring up. But now to see how blatant it is, to see Ewan McGregor come and support…It, for me, fulfills my time where I didn’t get the support.”

So it is clear that Boyega is no longer interested in returning to the franchise and as per the fans, they think it is the right decision as the franchise is solely responsible for ruining his character.

Fans support Boyega’s decision very well as they were utterly disappointed with how bad his story was written despite having potential. Now after his statements on the SiriusXM show, the fandom is on the side of the notion that Finn could have been the protagonist instead of Rey. The debate centering on Rey and her character arc has been a subject of debate for a long time since the sequel trilogy came out. Here we have collected some tweets on the fans’ reaction regarding John Boyega’s decision:

So it is pretty evident that the Star Wars fans are still mad over the decisions taken by Disney and what the makers did to the character of Finn as a result of which they stand with John Boyega.
