The Star Wars franchise's next theatrical offering has been generating a ton of buzz since its official announcement. Set generations after the sequel trilogy, the follow-up to 2019's The Rise of Skywalker will mark the return of Daisy Ridley as Rey in a project centered on her establishing a new Jedi Order.

Over the last couple of months, there have been several reports claiming that the film will see other familiar faces return to a galaxy far, far away, including Luke and Anakin Skywalker who are said to play pivotal roles in Rey's next adventure.

John Boyega's Finn is also heavily rumored to be part of the project but despite the character being a no-brainer inclusion, many believe that his past problems with Lucasfilm could prevent him from coming back despite the two parties burying the hatchet a long time ago.

Well, it appears that Boyega's Star Wars comeback could be upon us.

Speaking with TechRadar to promote his new Netflix movie They Cloned Tyrone, the sequel trilogy star opened up about his tumultuous past with Lucasfilm, saying that after all the issues surrounding his time working on the sequels, he's now open to returning to Star Wars.

He said: "That [those comments] was a few years ago, so they were the subject of that particular project. But I'm open to all characters and scripts that are enjoyable, have a great cast attached, and a terrific director. So yeah, I'm open to all opportunities."

It's great to know that Boyega has moved on from his horrible experience and we'd like to think that Lucasfilm is a different place than it was a number of years back. Hopefully, Finn's potential appearance in the "New Jedi Order" flick will serve as his redemption arc.
