Stormtroopers Arrest ‘Star Wars’ Star John Boyega in Disney

It’s all fun and games at Hollywood Studios in Disney World when the Stormtroopers march…unless you’re First Order enemy number one.

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,”

The video is a quality 18 seconds long and shows Boyega chuckling fiendishly as he is pushed through the street by stormtroopers.

“They’re arresting me right now at Disney. I get arrested? Damn!”

One trooper yells, “The fugitive is in custody!”

Boyega is also voicing a character in Watership Down series which hits Netflix on Christmas Eve 2018.

Star Wars: Episode IX premieres December 20th, 2019.
