In the eyes of fans across the galaxy, the Star Wars sequel trilogy dropped the ball on a lot of things, including Finn's ascension to the Jedi ranks.

While the sequels did tease the character's (played by John Boyega) journey to becoming a wielder of the Force since The Force Awakens, the idea didn't really come to fruition although it seemed like a no-brainer thing to do.

Now, with the franchise set to hit the big screen to pick up where The Rise of Skywalker left off, the possibility of Finn finally becoming a Jedi is once again being toyed with by the fandom, and to no surprise, even his co-star Daisy Ridley is on board with the prospect.

In a recent interview with ScreenRant, the British star was asked about her thoughts on Finn potentially being given his Jedi arc in the upcoming "New Jedi Order" flick. While Daisy pretty much approves of the idea, she says the decision isn't in her hands.

She said: "That is above my pay grade. [Laughs] I would love to see that, but that is not a decision for me."

Key details about the next Star Wars film are still being kept under wraps, but there's no denying that Lucasfilm has the opportunity to right several wrongs they've committed in the sequels.

As it stands, we still don't know if Boyega will reprise his role in the "New Jedi Order" film as he's been quite busy since stepping away from Star Wars, but a potential Jedi arc for Finn just might convince him to return.

The "New Jedi Order" movie has yet to be given a release window. Meanwhile, you can get your Star Wars fix on Disney+.
