Boyega Describes Holding His Lightsaber For The 1st Time

‘The Force Awakens’ Star Working On Keeping His Jedi Weapon…

Empire has been a great source of Star Wars news this week. A couple of days ago they asked John Boyega, who plays Finn in The Force Awakens, what it was like to hold his lightsaber for the first time. The actor was nothing if not enthusiastic about the experience…

Man, the lightsaber came in this case… the guys brought it out and I’m like, ‘Now’s the moment, now’s the time.’ I held it in my hand and I just felt, you know, the clouds open up and the white doves come flying down. It feels very, very good. I hugged it for the whole day. I didn’t allow anyone to hold it but me.

Empire then asked if he was able to keep his new onscreen weapon. Boyega replied…

No, but we’re working on that…

The most recent 30-second TV spot is Finn-centric and has been described as the best one for The Force Awakens yet. It features Finn wielding his newly acquired Jedi weapon against a badass Riot Control Stormtrooper. Take a look…

A tip of the hat to Empire for sharing this!
