John Boyega trolled Star Wars fans by “teasing” the opening crawl for The Rise of Skywalker.
Boyega‘s recent video, which was posted on his Instagram page, starts out like a normal Star Wars text crawl, describing “a period of turmoil” as the classic John Williams score plays. Suddenly, it cuts to a rap number, and the text is covered by multiple images of Boyega dancing in comical fashion. What remains of the crawl assures fans that it isn’t the real one, which they are still going to have to wait a few days for. The video ends with both Boyega and the text blasting off into hyperspace. Check out Boyega’s fake Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker crawl below:
