Finn's Just Casually Popping Into NYC Theaters to Surprise Star Wars Fans


Hearts are already beating faster than the Millennium Falcon's lightspeed over the new Star Wars movie, but the jedi-wannabes of NYC had even more reason to get ridiculously excited on Friday night.

John Boyega, a.k.a Finn, randomly stopped by some theaters in NYC this weekend just to be a cool guy and surprise some fans during showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He appeared at Regal Union Square Stadium, AMC Loews West 34th Street 14, AMC Loews Lincoln Square, United Artist Court Street, and Williamsburg Cinemas. Man, busy guy.

Here he is making his entrance into one of the theaters.

Another video shows Boyega telling fans that he was "in the area." So why not make everyone's day?

This guy wins.
