John Boyega emotional at Star Wars wrap party

Cape Town - John Boyega and his Star Wars: Episode IX castmates said their farewells at a wrap party last Friday night, and just hours after director J.J. Abrams confirmed filming was over in a touching tweet, Boyega, who plays Finn in the franchise, posted his own emotional message.

John posted a picture of himself, Daisy Ridley who plays Rey and Oscar Isaac who plays Poe Dameron on Instagram. 

Alongside the photo he wrote: "That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. I personally want to thank @jjabramsofficial for giving me a chance to make my dreams come true."


The film will release in SA cinemas on Friday, 20 December.
