Star Wars Actor John Boyega Misses… Cinderella?
When I saw the headline from Showbiz CheatSheet — “Even Star Wars Actor, John Boyega, Is Missing Disneyland and Walt Disney World” — I assumed the Instagram post would be about Galaxy’s Edge.
Nope. In this vid, Boyega (“Finn” from Star Wars in case you’ve been living under a rock) makes fun of his friends speaking to “Cinderella” at Disneyland.
Here’s what [John Boyega] has to say about Disneyland and the company’s recent closures.
Bad news for Disney fans — the happiest place on earth will remain closed just a little while longer. The company planned to close the theme parks through the end of March. Recently, they extended the closure, saying they would remain closed for the foreseeable future.
As a result, some Disney fans remade their favorite attractions at home. Others are watching “ride-through” videos on YouTube. For John Boyega, the actor who portrayed Finn in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, he posted an old clip with the Disney princess, Cinderella.
“Remembering the days where we could go Disneyland and sh*t,” he wrote as a caption. The post earned over 250,000 views in a matter of days. Some fans agreed with the sentiment, sharing their love for the magic at the theme park.
I loved this post. And enjoyed Ms. Dzurillay’s post over on Showbiz CheatSheet. However, here’s hoping the next time we see John Boyega post about a Disney park, he’s actually in a Disney park.
