New interview with Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ John Boyega from Empire!

There is a new interview with John Boyega from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the topic is Finn’s lightsaber use.

From Empire:

“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.

Head over to Empire and read the full interview! The full magazine will be out on November 26th.
