It’s so incredibly satisfying to see a celebrity truly appreciate their fans. Especially when those fans have a long history of aggressive zeal, it has to be exhausting. So when someone like John Boyega goes above and beyond to let us know that he definitely knows how lucky he is to be a part of something so major, it just warms our cold little hearts.
On Friday night, Boyega decided the best way to celebrate the opening of The Force Awakens was to drop in on as many screenings as possible.
Cause he was just, you know, in the area.
In ALL the areas. He’s doing it in UK theaters now too.

But the very best was when he surprised these two women watching the Star Wars trailer in this movie theater lobby. They might not have known Boyega’s name, but they knew enough to lose their shit.

And, by the way, John Boyega seems to have no reservations about accepting his new moniker.

Quick question, though: Would it have killed him to bring Daisy Ridley along?
