“Man, the lightsaber came in this case,” Boyega told Empire. “The guys brought it out and I’m like, ‘Now’s the moment, now’s the time.’”
He goes on to say he was very attracted to the weapon:
“I held it in my hand and I just felt, you know, the clouds open up and the white doves come flying down. It feels very, very good. I hugged it for the whole day. I didn’t allow anyone to hold it but me.”
Unfortunately, Boyega was not allowed to keep his lightsaber. But he says they’re working on getting it for him.
