Written by on July 21, 2020

(The Root) – The Star Wars franchise continues to expand, with a new Taika Waititi-directed film reportedly in development. Nevertheless, don’t expect John Boyega to take part in it. The actor confirmed his departure from the series in an Instagram comment, responding to a fan who wrote about what he’d like to see from the character in the next installment.

“Lol no thank you. I’ve moved on,” Boyega wrote with a heart emoji. In another comment, he added that he’s planning to move on because he wants to do more with his career. (“Not into playing one role for too long, I have more to offer than that.”) Earlier this year on Twitter, he wrote that members of the cast have also moved on from the series after a “very fulfilling” experience with “some disappointments.”
