Get able to put in your debate caps, Star Wars followers as John Boyega has simply sparked a spirited one. The actor who performs Finn within the present trilogy and is ready to reprise his function on this yr’s The Rise of Skywalker lately determined to weigh in on who’s one of the best Jedi; Rey, Luke or Anakin? Boyega took Anakin’s facet and that prompted fairly a little bit of dialog amongst followers on-line.
Recently, an article was revealed, utilizing proof from the present Star Wars canon, to argue that Rey was a “better” Jedi than each Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker. John Boyega determined to weigh in on the matter and took the facet of Anakin on this one. The wording is vital right here, however we’ll get to that in a second. Here’s what Boyega needed to say about it.
“I’m sorry guys but Anakin slapping all of us in a pit of lava. Including Kylo”
Daisy Ridley’s Rey, from the very starting, has clearly been very in tune with The Force. She’s a gifted Jedi and has uncooked energy. When we meet her in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, she could have been coaching for fairly a while following the occasions of The Last Jedi, which implies she’ll be much more highly effective. But extra highly effective than Luke? Look at what Luke was capable of do in Return of the Jedi and The Last Jedi. Does “better” imply extra highly effective? John Boyega’s remark appears to focus purely on energy and that is one thing of a sticking level.
There is a huge distinction between Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader. While technically the identical individual, it is largely seen that Anakin “died” when he grew to become Vader. And Vader is a Sith, not a Jedi. So the truth that Boyega is standing in Anakin’s nook is attention-grabbing. As many followers within the feedback part have been fast to level out, Ob-Wan bested Anakin in Revenge of the Sith. The well-known excessive floor bit, as followers might recall, earlier than Anakin obtained cooked to a tremendous crisp, leading to his want for Vader’s high-tech swimsuit to maintain him alive.

Is Yoda not a “better” Jedi than Rey? This is a debate that may’t probably be settled right here, however John Boyega has backed his horse on this race. Maybe we’ll discover a strategy to settle this as soon as and for all when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20. Be positive to take a look at the submit, in addition to a number of the responses, from John Boyega’s Twitter account.
