Snow can’t stop ‘Star Wars’ actor John Boyega from ‘The Last Jedi’ premiere

After tweeting Saturday that the snowstorm blanketing much of the south could keep “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” star John Boyega from attending the movie premiere, he has apparently landed in Los Angeles.

“I made it,” the actor tweeted. “Without luggage but woohoo!”

Boyega’s publicist confirmed he was on schedule for the Saturday night event.

“I’m here though thank you and thanks everyone,” Boyega tweeted. “I need a shower because.....ew.”

The actor reprises his role from the 2015 release “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as Finn a former Stormtrooper who joins the Resistance.

Much of Atlanta was buried beneath 3 to 6 inches of snow. The weather prompted Delta to cancel about 375 flights Saturday.

Before Boyega was able to get a later flight, he shared his concern on social media about being able to attend the event. 

“Wow (Atlanta). Looks like no one’s leaving! Guess I’ll start a family now,” Boyega tweeted. “Trying to get back for the LA premiere! I actually NEED a pilot.”
