Fans Want John Boyega Back In The Newly Announced "Star Wars" Movie That Will Feature Daisy Ridley's Return

    "This is really cool, but I desperately want them to give John Boyega the story he deserves."

    Die-hard fan or not, you've probably heard three new Star Wars films are on the way.

    At Lucasfilm's Studio Showcase at Star Wars Celebration 2023, Kathleen Kennedy introduced James Mangold, Dave Filoni, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy as the directors of the three new upcoming Star Wars films.

    According to IGN, James Mangold's film will focus on the beginning of the Jedi, and Dave Filoni's will concentrate on the New Republic.

    As for Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy's film? Well, it will take place after the events of The Rise of Skywalker, and yes, Daisy Ridley is returning!

    Everyone, including me, was excited for Daisy's return to the franchise as Rey, but it quickly got fans asking: Does this mean Finn is coming back too?

    If you remember, John Boyega was pretty vocal about his disappointment with the franchise and how his character was treated on and off screen, but that didn't stop the fandom from wishful thinking.

    Here's what fans had to say in support of John's return:

    John Boyega always loved Star Wars. He deserved better and so much more. If the day comes where he does wanna come back, everyone who matters is gonna be rooting for Jedi Finn

    This is really cool but I desperately want them to give John Boyega the story he deserves. If he doesn't want to come back, I 100% understand and respect that decision but they should at least try. They did him so dirty

    I know that John Boyega has said he doesn’t plan to return But if we get even the slightest cameo you will never ever hear the end of it from me

    Disney needs to TRY to get John Boyega back. If he’s not in the next film and he says they tried to get him to do it, great, they would’ve given him the chance he deserves and he has every reason to turn it down. But if they go “well he obviously wouldn’t come back so we didn’t -

    And the fans didn't forget to call for Kelly Marie Tran's return as Rose, either. However, after Kelly expressed all the racist and sexist harassment she received, it's unlikely she should give the franchise a second chance.

    No offense meant to Daisy Ridley at all but wake me up when they finally do right by Kelly Marie Tran and John Boyega.

    @GL2814_3 Lucasfilm needs to come to John Boyega with their hat in hand, tail between their legs, kiss the ring, do whatever it takes to convince him to come back and do right by him. Kelly Marie Tran too.

    it's highly unlikely that kelly marie tran, john boyega, oscar isaac or adam driver will be back, and i'm not exactly excited to see rey being all alone and doing something that she never expressed intrest in doing before, so like there's not much incentive to watch it :(

    I WANT THEM ALL BACK! Perhaps a good Jedi mind trick will get everybody back on the same page, and we can get John, Kelly, Daisy, and Oscar back together again.
