NOTE: The following post contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Star Wars 7 - - - Despite countless stories centered on Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars Expanded Universe, it still wasn't clear exactly where the Jedi Knight would pop-up in The Force Awakens.
His casting has sparked controversy. Last year, some Twitter users questioned Disney's decision to show a black man in the iconic white military garb. Boyega's response: "Get used to it." Now, some are threatening to boycott a movie with a black man in a lead role.
