Boyega Speaks Out, Backed By Lucasfilm

Star Wars actor John Boyega (Finn) delivered a passionate speech during a protest march in the UK this week, stating “We don’t know what George Floyd could have achieved, we don’t know what Sandra Bland could have achieved, but today we’re going to make sure that won’t be an alien thought to our young ones.” While the actor openly questioned whether he would have a career after speaking out, Lucasfilm issued a tweet of support. See the tweet and Boyega’s speech (from The Guardian) below.
