There is little doubt that John Boyega is currently risking it all by supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actor has just delivered a powerful speech at a protest in London and Lucasfilm is supporting him all the way.
The official Star Wars Twitter account has just tweeted its support for Boyega along with an important message. Check it out below.
"Lucasfilm stand with John Boyega and his message that, 'Now is the time. Black lives have always mattered. Black lives have always been important. Black lives have always meant something.' The evil that is racism must stop. We will commit to being part of the change that is long overdue in the world. John Boyega, you are our hero," the message reads.
Boyega recently attended a George Floyd protest in Hyde Park in London where he delivered a powerful speech in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Interestingly, the Attack the Block star had previously posted about his support, claiming that he doesn't care if he no longer has a career after speaking up. However, it looks like Lucasfilm will be making sure that Boyega continues to get work in the future.
Boyega has just completed work on the film Naked Singularity and is reportedly supposed to be filming for a new BBC series Small Axe. However, production has been put on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak.
