“Star Wars” actor John Boyega says he has “moved on” from the franchise, limiting any hopes he might come back to play Finn again.

Boyega posted a photo on Instagram where he is seen sitting in a chair, apparently on set for a new film. Someone commented, saying, “Force Finn in action with Green lightsaber dressed in black is all I want from the next SW film!”

Boyega replied to the comment: “lol no thank you. I’ve moved on (heart emoji).”

Another user said: “really just got those Disney bucks and dipped (laugh crying emoji).”

Boyega responded: “nope. Not into playing one role for too long. I have more to offer than that. That’s all.”

This echoes similar comments from Boyega back in April. A Twitter user said the most recent film, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” was “embarrassing.”

Boyega replied: “Embarrassing ? LOL you wish. Very fulfilling, some disappointments but yet not that big of a deal. Everyone has moved on. …”

Boyega’s co-star Oscar Isaac has expressed similar sentiments about returning to the “Star Wars franchise. He told Deadline he would only return to the “Star Wars” franchise “if I need another house or something.”

“I enjoyed the challenge of those films and working with a very large group of incredible artists and actors, prop makers, and set designers, and all that. It was really fun,” Isaac said. “But it’s not really what I set out to do. What I really set out to do was to make handmade movies and to work with people that inspired me.”
