Star Wars: John Boyega Shares Adorable Behind-the-Scenes Throwback Video Featuring Dancing Droids

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit theaters over a month ago, but one of the film's stars is still treating fans to some delightful behind-the-scenes content. Last week, John Boyega (Finn), shared a fun video of himself in costume with Joonas Suotamo, who played Chewbacca in the new movie. In the post, Boyega vowed to start sharing throwbacks every Thursday of "random nonsense." While last week's video was a real treat, the actor has already outdone himself with today's video. The clip shows Anthony Daniels, who has been playing C-3PO in the franchise since the original movie, dancing up a storm with his fellow droids: BB-8 and newcomer, D-O.

“Throwback to a sweet moment ❤️,” Boyega wrote.

The movie is up for Best Original Score (John Williams), Best Sound Editing (Matthew Wood and David Acord), and Best Visual Effects (Roger Guyett, Neal Scanlan, Patrick Tubach and Dominic Tuohy).
