WINDOWSCENTRAL – The finals for Microsoft’s 2016 Imagine Cup are fast approaching, and the tech giant has just announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega will be a special guest judge for the student competition.



As any Star Wars fan will be aware, Boyega played the role of Finn, the stormtrooper-turned-hero in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Speaking about his new role as an Imagine Cup judge, Boyega says:


“As an actor, I work with special effects all the time. And the only thing more amazing than Hollywood movie magic is the passion and creativity of the students at the Imagine Cup.”


Boyega will be joined by Dr. Jennifer Tang, who previously took part in and won 2014’s Imagine Cup as part of a team that developed a “non-invasive screening tool for anaemia.” Tang is now a doctor in a Melbourne trauma center.


For those unfamiliar, Imagine Cup is Microsoft-sponsored competition that serves to highlight student teams that come up with interesting new applications for technology, ranging from the fun to the life-saving. This year’s World Championship Imagine Cup live stream will kick off at 9 a.m. PT on July 29. For now, you can check out all of the entrants in Microsoft’s blog post for more.

MTV – Saturday Night Live struck comedy gold with its “Star Wars Auditions” sketch last November, which featured cast members impersonating celebs auditioning for the blockbuster sequel. But apparently there was a ton of bonus, star-studded footage left on the cutting room floor… until now.


In a new video from the sketch, we see even more fake auditions, including Vanessa Bayer as Jennifer Lawrence and Kyle Mooney as Shia LaBeouf. The real Emma Stone and Jon Hamm make hilarious return appearances, alongside Matthew McConaughey, who delivers a poor pitch to play Lando Calrissian.


The real MVPs here, though, are Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, whose charm and charisma reminds us why we fell in love with them in the first place. Plus — who knows?! — maybe Boyega’s Denzel Washington–inspired “urbanized” Stormtrooper will make a cameo in Episode VIII.

The Force Awakens actor is back in brick in the new trailer for the Lego Star Wars video game


RADIO TIMES – Star Wars actor John Boyega is a busy boy right now.


As if filming the next Episode in the franchise wasn’t work enough, he’s also preparing for a theatre production with Harry Potter playwright Jack Thorne AND working on a Netflix and BBC adaptation of children’s classic Watership Down.


Thankfully, there’s still a chance to see more of him as Finn – in the Lego Star Wars video game.


Boyega recorded his own dialogue for the Lego version of his Force Awakens character, meaning we all get to check in with everybody’s favourite treacherous stormtrooper/sanitation supervisor.


Check out an exclusive clip of the game below, due out 28th June 2016.

ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT – Even princes geek out when it comes to Star Wars.


Prince Harry and Prince William visited the Star Wars set at Pinewood Studios in England on Tuesday, and it’s safe to say they had plenty of fun during their tour. The brothers were shown around by British actress Daisy Ridley, who played Rey in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and also met up with John Boyega (Finn), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), and Star Wars: Episode VIII director Rian Johnson.


Obviously, they couldn’t resist a good lightsaber battle.

We also hear from Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), and Adam Driver exclaims that it was such a hassle to put on his Kylo Ren costume, it helped him get into character.This preview also explores the famous scene where Kylo Ren kills his father, Han Solo (Harrison Ford).
