On the promotional tour for the forthcoming BBC drama series Small Axe, John Boyega inevitably touched upon the subject of Star Wars, and in doing so appears to have left the door open for future projects including a foray into the animated realm, where he can see clear advantages.

As of now, Boyega considers himself retired from active Star Wars duty, moving onto projects like Small Axe, which recently premiered at the New York Film Festival to rave reviews. But if Disney ever decides to tell the story that Trevorrow sketched out for Finn — perhaps as an animated Disney+ series — he’d consider booking a trip back to the far, far away galaxy. “I’m a Mandalorian fan, so Lucasfilm is doing very well with the TV shows,” he says, laughing. “An animated show would be dope! We could do it from home.”

We discuss this and much, much more on this coming Tuesday’s 60th episode of Making Tracks.
