Things I Loved in 2015: John Boyega’s Reaction to Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer



John Boyega is best known for his role as Moses in the 2011 sci-fi Attack the Block. After landing a dream role as Fin in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he’ll be a household name before opening weekend is over. There’s already people cosplaying as Fin along with toys and lunchboxes with Boyega’s likeness on them.

It’s been fun watching Boyega on this journey, and the best part is seeing how much he’s enjoying everything. He’s as much of a fan as I am. The best example would be his reaction watching The Force Awakens trailer for the first time.

The 2:35 trailer was shown during halftime of the Monday Night Football game between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles on October 19th, and Boyega was watching right along with everyone else.

The look on Boyega’s face during the video says everything. I’m not sure what my favorite part of the trailer is. It’s a tie between “Ya damn right!” at the 1:24 mark or everything from the 1:50 mark until the end.

“C’mon Kylo Ren!”
