The Star Wars saga began back in 1977 with the release of a blockbuster the likes of which audiences had never seen before. The story began with Luke Skywalker fulfilling a destiny that had been set in motion years before. We backtracked to those origins as his father Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader. And now we find ourselves at the end with a new story where Kylo Ren, formerly Ben Solo, has to contend with the rise of the light side of the Force in the form of a mysteriously powerful girl named Rey.
Because of this legacy, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has a lot riding on it. So it should please fans that despite having three fewer months of post-production on this movie than The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams feels much better about this final installment of the Skywalker saga than he did about the beginning of this new trilogy at the same point in production. Find out what the director is willing to reveal about the movie, and also hear what stars Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac and John Boyega have to say about where we find our heroes in this final chapter.

Later this year, we’ll see John Boyega back in space in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We’re not sure what his future in a galaxy far, far away holds after that, but over at Netflix, he’ll be playing with a different kind of sci-fi as the lead of one of their new original movies.
They Cloned Tyrone is said to be a “pulpy, sci-fi mystery caper” that has been described as being something akin to Friday mixed with Get Out. John Boyega will be taking the lead role, which was previously in the hands of Widows and If Beale Street Could Talk co-star Brian Tyree Henry. Find out more about the movie below. Read More »

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi.

As has become customary with any new Star Wars saga film, very little is known about what is coming in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga. Star Wars Episode 9 is currently in production, and very few secrets are making their way on to the web, which isn’t surprising since Mark Hamill recently compared the secrecy surrounding the franchise as something akin to being in the CIA.
