Lately, Twitter has become a hot spot for some fun content from the cast of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) is constantly sharing fun stories and revealing information about the beloved trilogy, Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca) is always championing his castmates, and John Boyega (Finn) hasn't been pulling any punches when it comes to interacting with fans online. Recently, Boyega commented on one of Suotamo's posts and the exchange was pretty hilarious. The Chewbacca actor shared a throwback of himself with Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Boyega called him out for stealing some of his goodies.
“A fun behind-the-scenes moment with Daisy and I while filming #TheRiseOfSkywalker. Wookiees appreciate a friend that fixes their hair! Thanks to the fans who tagged me in the pic, I'm not sure where it was originally posted, but it's a moment I remember like it was yesterday,” Suotamo wrote.
“You still got my sweets in that pouch? Lol this is not how smuggling works,” Boyega replied.
