“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, filmed in 2017 featuring English actor John Boyega as “Finn”, left us on the edge of our seats with constant pummeling from the First Order. The Resistance was down to one ship. We were left with an ounce of hope and a bit of positive enthusiasm. What happens now? Star War fans all over the world will get their answer in the newest episode of the Star Wars trilogy. “Hold on, we are in for a big ride and surprise”, hints John Boyega. Messages on Instagram and other sources lets us in on a few secrets brewing in episode 9. He hints of a big time jump, and the fact that he grew his hair for the filming, which wrapped up in February of 2019. What does his hair have to do with it? We’ll find out. John Boyega also let us in on the fact that we are in store for some spectacular visual effects. This is not surprising, considering the special effect talents of Lucasfilm Ltd. Very exciting, and something we can all look forward to. In the prior Star Wars episode “The Force Awakens”, John Boyega became a well known force as a first order storm trooper known as Finn. His proper name technically is “Designation FN-2187”. Once again John Boyega returns as the beloved Finn in “Star Wars: Episode IX” scheduled for release in December of 2019.
John Boyega, born John Adegboyega, arrived March 17, 1992 in on the Earth in London, England. His proud parents were of British Nigerian descent. His father, Samson Adegboyega, made his upkeep as a minister (as mentioned earlier) in the Pentecostal faith. His mother, Abigail Aboderin Adegboyega, worked in partnership helping disabled people. It is understood that both Father and Mother were very supportive in young John’s life.
John Boyega showed talent at an early age, and went on to be noticed by the director at “Theatre Peckham”, an educational theater for young people in South London. After the “Theatre Peckham”, he attended South Thames College at the Wandsworth campus (2008 to 2010). His purpose was to obtain a “National Diploma in Performing Arts”. He gained a star in his belt at South Thames College by procuring the lead in the onstage production of “Othello”. Another onstage production featuring him as the lead, shortly after, was “Woyzeck” at the “Old Vic Theatre” in London. Everything John Boyega touched “turned to gold” as an actor. He found his calling. For a short while John Boyega’s head was turned by “BA Film Studies and Media Writing”, but he quickly regained focus as an actor. All in all, life and a true love for acting has been the greatest training for John Boyega.
Not many people know this but we had to train outdoors a lot in the sun. John kept saying he was getting flashback to when he was a landscaper. When he decided to look up the company he worked for, it was interesting to see the landscaping company was still up. Its hard to imagine this start would be doing something like landscaping, although it did give him good training.
Nominations and magazines attribute the stars of tomorrow. John Boyega has been strong on the lists. The predictions have been accurate and John Boyega is definitely a star. John Boyega has been placed beside Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker in the halls of Star Wars fame, as “Finn”. Eternity is playing on our hearts, just as we remember Han Solo, Darth Vader, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Yoda. “Star Wars: Episode IX” is the third movie in the Star Wars follow up trilogy, and John Boyega has played in all three as a memorable character. “Star Wars: Episode IX” is already riding strong with its distribution coming from Walt Disney Studio’s Motion Pictures, formerly known as the “Buena Vista Film Distribution Company, Inc.”. The Walt Disney Company is tops in the entertainment department, as we all know. Their business is creating memories, icons, and stars. John Boyega has proven to be no exception to their fine linage. The entertainment industry has definitely gained from John Boyega’s fine talent of acting.
Many of these characters did something early in their careers they were not necessarily passionate about. We learned on set some of the people worked at a Mold Removal and Water Damage company. This was crazy to think about because they are all famous now after the ltest star wars movie.
