Speaking to Yahoo on Wednesday, the British-born Boyega, 28, discussed an axed storyline for the final film, ultimately titled Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise Of Skywalker, that would have given Finn a meatier role.

John Boyega , who plays Finn in the modern " Star War " trilogy and in the finale "The Rise of Skywalker," talks about how the franchise has changed his life

John Boyega who played Finn in the Disney Skywalker Saga, has recently said that he will NEVER return to Star Wars for a new movie

He was referring to Trevorrow's original vision for how the final film – which he would have titled Star Wars: Duel Of The Fates – would unfold... before Colin left the directing mantle altogether and was replaced by Episode VII helmer JJ Abrams.

'The concept art in the Star Wars book has that image of Finn with the blue [Rebellion] flag, and you have the AT-ATs lined up with tribal marks, and the stormtroopers take off their helmets,' Boyega continued, referring to leaked concept art from Trevorrow's vision.

'That would have been sick. That would have been dope, hands down.'

John Boyega is interviewed for Episode IX of George Lucas’s Star Wars Saga: The Rise of Skywalker. The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver

British actor John Boyega , who played the character of Finn in three recent “ Star Wars ” films, appears to have left the role behind him. The actor has shut down fan speculation that he ' d return as a lightsaber-wielding Finn. Good Housekeeping.

But sadly, due to many, many factors, both Boyega's character, as well as Kelly Marie Tran's Rose, were unjustly brushed to the side in the final cut of last year's saga-concluding Rise Of Skywalker.

It was an issue that Boyega first broached last month, in an interview with British GQ, in which he proclaimed that Disney marketed his character as being 'much more important' than he ultimately became.

He went on the say that he felt that the white characters in the film were given far more 'nuance,' suggesting that the filmmaking team didn't know how to treat him properly as a black actor.

'They gave all the nuance to Adam Driver, all the nuance to Daisy Ridley. Let’s be honest. Daisy knows this. Adam knows this. Everybody knows. I’m not exposing anything,' he said at the time.

It was a sentiment he revisited in his chat with Yahoo this week, when he compared to his character Finn – who had the makings of a true cinematic hero – with a figure like Captain America.

'We all know that what makes roles so lucrative [are] the moments you give them. If Captain America isn’t given the scenes to boost his representation, and to make him enjoyable for you guys, we won’t think he’s cool,' Boyega reasoned. '[So] why shouldn’t Black characters and Black actors also fight for that same kind of representation?'

In any case, John is still open to the idea of revisiting the role of Finn, if he got his due representation and was able to complete the arc that was first promised to him.

Perhaps it would be in a television series, as he teased to Yahoo this week.

'I’m a Mandalorian fan, so Lucasfilm is doing very well with the TV shows,' he said.

Better yet: 'An animated show would be dope! We could do it from home!'
