Boyega's words came after Kelly Marie Tran quit Instagram because of sexist and racist abuse.
The 26 year old star, who played Finn in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, took to Twitter to upbraid some of the popular film series’ more outspoken fans, just days after two of its female stars, Kelly Marie Tran and Daisy Ridley, both quit Instagram after becoming fed up with the constant trolling and online abuse they received.
“If you don't like Star Wars or the characters, understand that there are decisions makers [sic] and harassing the actors/actresses will do nothing,” Boyega tweeted on Tuesday evening (June 12th). “You're not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!”

The 'Jurassic World' director was the original choice to take charge of 'Star Wars: Episode IX', but was dropped for JJ Abrams last year.
While Solo has underperformed slightly at the box offices on opening weekend, the Star Wars franchise shows little sign of running out of steam any time soon, with attention and anticipation growing for future spin-offs from the series.
Before all that, however, there’s the small matter of the ninth and final instalment in the main Star Wars series, which is slated to arrive in cinemas on 20th December 2019. At the end of last year, LucasFilm decided to change directors for the film, dropping original choice Colin Trevorrow, the man behind Jurassic World, and getting in The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams in.
Now, with his sequel to Jurassic World, titled Fallen Kingdom, nearly finished and with Star Wars being a hot topic, 41 year old Trevorrow has spoken about the as-yet-untitled project that’s now going on without him.

The actor has been 'raving' about it, according to Ron Howard.
After 40 years, you'd be forgiven for not being able to appreciate anyone other than Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the 'Star Wars' franchise. But all that's changed with the release of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' and, as it turns out, the actor could not be more thrilled with the iconic character's origin story.

While the 75-year-old is yet to give his own statement with regards to the new film, director Ron Howard has insisted that he has most certainly given his seal of approval. According to him, Alden Ehrenreich could not have done a better job as the young Rebel pilot.

1. Lucas had Interesting influences - Every good storyteller has there influences, and for George Lucas, inspiration was drawn from both Joseph Campbell's 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces' (particularly for the character of Luke Skywalker) and Akira Kurosawa's 1958 film 'The Hidden Fortress'.

CAUTION: Plot spoilers for 'The Last Jedi'
The question of whether Hamill’s iconic film character would be appearing in the upcoming ninth instalment of the Star Wars series has been consuming fan forums, with the possibility of Luke Skywalker returning as a kind of ‘Force Ghost’ being raised as a possibility.
Hamill himself remained tight-lipped about that prospect in an interview just a few weeks ago, but now he’s seemingly had a change of heart, telling ABC News this week that he’s lost interest in ever coming back to Star Wars, particularly after Harrison Ford’s Han Solo was killed off in The Force Awakens, as well as the death of co-star Carrie Fisher.

It's been more than 40 years since Mark Hamill first appeared as Luke Skywalker in the 'Star Wars' film series, and it's only now that he has finally received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Disney announce the filmmaker as the screenwriter.
Action producer Jon Favreau has been chosen to write the script for the forthcoming live action 'Star Wars' series in a move that happens to be a dream come true for the filmmaker. It comes after a long-standing working relationship with Disney, and years of being a huge fan.

They'll be unveiling a new set of films set in a galaxy far, far away.
With 'Game Of Thrones' set to wrap with its final series in 2019, creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are preparing to transition into an exciting new project. They're planning to take on the 'Star Wars' universe with a series of spin-off films of their own which can only be a recipe for success.

A 46-minute version of 'The Last Jedi', with all the female characters excluded or heavily edited, appeared earlier this month on a file-sharing site. It's not very good.
An angry fan of the franchise took the time to create a “men-only” version of The Last Jedi on file-sharing site Pirate Bay, reducing its running time to just 46 minutes, lopping out nearly two hours of material in response to what he (obviously a he) regarded as the over-population of the latest movie’s plot by female characters.
Laura Dern’s character of Admiral Holdo was cut out of the film entirely, with Daisy Ridley’s Rey and Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico both having their roles drastically reduced. Even the late Carrie Fisher didn’t escape unscathed, edited down so that Princess Leia no longer “scolds, questions nor demotes” the rebel fighter pilot Poe Dameron.
He'd be happy to be included in the upcoming spin-off.
As we await the release of the second 'Star Wars' anthology film, 'Solo', Ewan McGregor has spoken out about his interest in reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for the possible upcoming spin-off flick about the character's origins. However, there are still no details about the project.
