John Boyega says he’s “open” to returning to the “Star Wars” universe.

John Boyega is opening up on Star Wars universe and if he would be interested in returning for another film.

His comments come years after he previously spoke about the treatment of black characters in Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker and accused Disney of capitalizing on their casting before shelving their characters in the story.

“It was a few years ago, so they were the subject of that particular project,” Boyega recently said Tech Radar, in an interview conducted before the actors’ strike. “But I’m open to all characters and scripts that are fun and have a great cast and a great director. So yes, I’m open to all opportunities.
