There is a feeling that comes with watching yourself do awesome things on screen, and John Boyega experienced that while watching the latest ‘Star Wars : The Force Awakens’ trailer.’
A new ‘Star Wars : The Force Awaken’ trailer made its debut on Monday night, and awakened all sorts of excitement amongst fans.
Turns out fans aren’t the only ones excited about the upcoming film. John Boyega, who plays Finn in movie, couldn’t hold back his excitement while he watched the much talked about trailer.
He took to his Instagram page to share a clip of himself watching trailer.
He shared the above video with the caption;
“THE TRAILER IS JUST EEEEPPPPPPPIIIIICCCCCCC! Star Wars is back! gaaaaaad laaaaard! You know what! Let me just relax because this kind God oooo! Lmao! Seriously congrats to everyone ! December 18th!"
Few days ago, a group of Twitter users launched the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII, claiming that the upcoming 'Star Wars : The Force Awakens' is "anti-white, promotes white genocide and is aimed at 'demoralizing and destroying Whites."
The above stated theory originates from the fact that the movie features black actor Boyega as Finn, a stormtrooper, and one of the leads.
Following the hateful hashtags, 'Selma' director Ava Duvernay, started her own hashtag #CelebrateStarWarsVII.
The inclusion of a black stormtropper in the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' movie caused quite a stir on social media in November 2014.
In a recent interview with V Magazine, the actor described the reaction as unnecessary;
“I’m in the movie, what are you going to do about it? You either enjoy it or you don’t. I’m not saying get used to the future. It's is already happening. People of colour and women are increasingly being shown on screen. For things to be whitewashed just doesn’t make sense," he said.
