John Boyega appeared in a series of tweets that appeared as such:
Hopefully my man @JohnBoyega will truly shine in IX and the Finn character will be shown as the badass hero I’ve been waiting for him to be since VII.
..and hopefully he’ll wield a saber again.. https://t.co/3OxjrK9A5c

At this point, I genuinely don’t think keeping people out of the theaters is going to be a problem. Given all of the empty theaters for Solo, I suspect that getting people into the theaters for Episode IX will be the challenge. Particularly if Lucasfilm representatives insist on continuing to misbehave in this way.
The boycott had a very small effect on Solo in my opinion. The larger part of the absent audience was due to apathy creeping into the general audience. That’s what Mr. Boyega ought to be worried about. Or not, given that he gets paid either way.
