Student Themed Stock Photos of John Boyega Will Help You Imagine What Stormtrooper Education Looks Like

Before Star Wars: Episode VII, John Boyega needed a new set of trainers, so he posed for these stock images. It's always fun to see a familiar face in an unexpected place. You can even pretend that these cheesy student photos offer a glimpse at the origin of Finn, before he graduated and became a Stormtrooper.

This short teaser posted to the Star Wars Instagram gives us another look at the Sith baddie, Kilo Ren and his cross beamed lightsaber, but there's a little bit of new news. Namely, John Boyega's character, Finn wielding a lightsaber of his own.

This blue beauty appears to be Luke's original lightsaber from A New Hope, which was lost with Luke's hand in a lightsaber duel in the Cloud City above Bespin.

John Boyega seems like a really swell dude, but his friends have so little faith! Boyega revealed to Jimmy Fallon that his buddies back in London were shocked to see how much of Star Wars VII he was actually in. Apparently, they all thought he was just an extra.

Jimmy Fallon also talks about John Boyega surprising Star Wars fans at showings of the film, which will really bring a smile to your face:

See what I mean? Really swell guy.

John Boyega went to visit a small Star Wars fan at the Royal London Hospital.  As he explains in the image description he shared on Instagram, Boyega stayed in character the whole time: 

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

He even found a Rey to hold his hand during the trip:
