The actor put his film critic hat on when responding to a Twitter fan who called the divisive JJ Abrams film “embarrassing”.
Boyega replied: “Embarrassing? LOL you wish. Very fulfilling, some disappointments but yet not that big of a deal. Everyone has moved on.”
The Finn actor didn’t comment on what parts of the film he found “disappointing”.
Boyega has refused to hold back when revealing his verdict on past Star Wars films, also.
When speaking about Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, he admitted that his character’s trajectory left him feeling underwhelmed.
“I liked the idea of these characters being challenged and separated and stressed, like everyone’s just trying to get to each other – that excited me,” he told The Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast.
“But I will be honest in saying I think that they could have done better with it, especially with Finn and Rose [Kelly Marie Tran].”
Upon its release in December, The Mandalorian actor Jake Cannavale called it “the worst Star Wars film” there has ever been.
Despite its far share of criticism, the film was a box office success and had a far higher audience score on Rotten Tomatoes than previous Star Wars outings.
