John Boyega meets the Legends of the Force

FN-2187 himself, John Boyega, travelled across the galaxy to Disneyland Paris to experience Legends of the Force for himself and get arrested by two First Order Stormtroopers for his troubles!

Finn, also known as FN2187 (played by John Boyega), started his legendary adventure as a First Order Stormtrooper. As soon as he arrived at the Disneyland Park, he was surprised to find himself arrested by two Stormtroopers patrolling Disneyland Paris during the special Star Wars season, an encounter that John will always remember.

Staying clear of the menacing First Order, he made his way to see his faithful friend Chewbacca, who you can meet every day during Legends of the Force – A Celebration Star Wars at Walt Disney Studios Park. John commented “I think that it’s great because every time I’m filming with Chewie, I hug him as much as I can. It makes sense that everyone can experience this.”

Lastly, it was the legendary Darth Vader that John Boyega was brave enough to meet for the first time. After meeting all of his favourite characters, he was able to experience Hyperspace Mountain, which offers plenty of thrills to the sound of John Williams’ music. Next he took his seat on Star Tours: The Adventure Continues, an attraction in which you can meet his character, Finn, depending on the mission you embark on. May the force be with you!
