It's no secret that John Boyega hasn't always seen eye to eye with Disney and his time in the Star Wars franchise was plagued with several controversies that stem from the House of Mouse's apparent mistreatment of POC actors like him. After the Skywalker saga concluded, the Finn actor was able to patch things up with Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy and it seemingly left the door wide open for his return to a galaxy far, far away down the line.

Well, it turns out that the British-Nigerian actor is putting his Star Wars career past him and as it stands, he's no longer interested in appearing in a future project. In an interview with SiriusXM, Boyega admitted that while he enjoyed working on the sequel trilogy, reprising his Finn character is something that no longer appeals to him as an actor.

John explains: "At this point, I'm cool off it. I'm good off it. I think Finn is at a good confirmation point where you can just enjoy him in other things, the games, the animation. But I feel like '[Episode] VII' to '[Episode] IX' was good for me."

Boyega's apparent lack of enthusiasm comes as a huge surprise, especially considering his sequel trilogy co-stars Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac didn't rule out their potential return to the Star Wars universe. I guess Disney's handling of his character left a bad taste in his mouth or maybe he just wants to take a long break from doing projects that require him to be tied into a lengthy deal.

That said, Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy is available for streaming exclusively on Disney+.
