John Boyega Bringing His Whole Family to the London 'Star Wars' Premiere Is Cute, Yet Nigerian AF
We salute you, bros.
John Boyega and Lupita Nyong'o have been styling and profiling at the premieres for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And for the London premiere, Boyega's best accessories were his family—and we're here for it.

We figured it was by fire, by force for Boyega's whole family to be present, especially since plus 1s are hard to come by at movie premieres. But they were there to do what Nigerians do best—be their child's best hypemen.
My fave thing tonight was how much John Boyega’s family cheered every time he was on screen. They bloody love him and rightly so!— Mark Millar (@Mark Millar)1513128658.0
Even during his red carpet interview, he had to close it out by introducing his parents to the world.

The film is set to hit theaters December 14 in the UK and December 15 in the US, where Boyega plays Finn, a fan favorite. The Last Jedi comes two years after the release of The Force Awakens.
All we know is we'll be front and center to watch him and Lupita do the damn thing.
