Just a year before the next Star Wars episode is due out, trilogy star John Boyega, otherwise known as Finn, was hanging out and celebrating the holiday in Walt Disney World. He made his way to Hollywood Studios this week, where it’s known that a pack of Stormtroopers usually marches through. Captain Phasma is often with them.
If you recall, his character abandoned the First Order to join the rebellion, so to them he’s a pretty big target.
Boyega was posting his Disney experience on social media, and one Reddit user was sharing them all to r/StarWars, which is a subreddit for all things related to Star Wars.
User u/kyjoeren wrote with the video, “John Boyega ‘arrested’ by Stormtroopers at Disney,”
“They’re arresting me right now at Disney. I get arrested? Damn!”
One trooper yells, “The fugitive is in custody!”
Boyega tweeted out the catastrophe, and Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill has responded with the best possible words.
Seems like YOU messed up, son.

Really this is the perfect fiasco to happen around Christmas time, and we hope Boyega is resting comfortably in his Disney jail cell.
Star Wars: Episode IX premieres December 20th, 2019.
