John Boyega is currently promoting the release of his movie, Detroit, but he's still up for answering some questions about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Boyega was asked about what he thought of director Rian Johnson, and though he expresses nothing but admiration, there is one thing that he absolutely doesn't like about Johnson—his taste in music.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Boyega admits:

"I have to say, I hate his playlist on his iPhone. He has the country version to every great hip-hop song ever made and I don't understand where he got that from. It's treachery. It's blasphemous. Apart from that, he's amazing."


Of course, just because Boyega had different tastes in music doesn't mean he can't get along with Johnson at all. He also says:

"Rian is just fun. Rian is just a fun guy. I have a feeling he is Santa Claus. I think Santa Claus is a part time director when it comes to December. He grows out the beard then does his thing, because he just so giving, he's cheerful on set, and it's always a fun time."

It looks like Lucasfilm is very pleased with the direction Rian Johnson is taking The Last Jedi, and the situation feels very different from what happened to the Han Solo spinoff movie. Phil Lord and Chris Miller had complained that they weren't given enough creative control on their own project, but Johnson was said to have been free to do as he pleased—probably because Kathleen Kennedy was pleased with what she was seeing.

John Boyega returns as Finn in Star Wars: The Last Jedi which comes out Dec. 15.
