‘Star Wars’ alum John Boyega praises Colin Treborrow’s rumored ‘Duel of the Fates’ film
John Boyega recently praised Colin Treborrow’s rumored ‘Duel of the Fates’ film in a new interview.
- “I think Colin Trevorrow was going to tell that story,” Boyega said. “That image of Finn with the blue flag, and you have the AT-ATs lined up with tribal marks, and the stormtroopers take off their helmets. That would have been sick! That would have been dope, man, hands down.”
Boyega has been an outspoken actor about “Star Wars” and how he has been upset about how the series treated his character.
- “You get yourself involved in projects and you’re not necessarily going to like everything. (But) what I would say to Disney is do not bring out a Black character, market them to be much more important in the franchise than they are and then have them pushed to the side. It’s not good. I’ll say it straight up.”
He reiterated those comments to Yahoo Entertainment.
- “I felt it was important for me to talk about a truth that is embarrassing to talk about,” he added. “We all know that what makes roles so lucrative (are) the moments you give them. If Captain America isn’t given the scenes to boost his representation, and to make him enjoyable for you guys, we won’t think he’s cool. Why shouldn’t Black characters and Black actors also fight for that same kind of representation? I think it’s a done deal with that.”
