Boyega And Kennedy Spoke About ‘Star Wars’ And The Treatment Of Non-White Characters

John Boyega has never shied away from sharing his true feelings about his time in Star Wars universe, specifically having called out what he viewed as the maltreatment of non-white characters (such as Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico and his own Finn). Speaking with the BBC today, Boyega shared that he and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy had a phone conversation that he described as “really nice, transparent, honest.” He went on to state that Kennedy showed support and that the conversation was ultimately beneficial. This sounds like a rather fruitful development in an industry that, in the past, may have shunned the actor for speaking out. Progress?
