    Star Wars actor John Boyega is just like everybody else: he's playing Pokemon Go. Now, he tells TechCrunch that he caught a Pikachu while filming Star Wars Episode VIII in London.

    "I found a Pikachu at Pinewood Studios while filming Star Wars. I told EVERYBODY. 'I got a Pikachu!' I was the most popular kid on set for like a day," he explained (via Entertainment Weekly).

    He is currently level 5 in Pokemon Go.

    Boyega, who previously called on EA to make a Star Wars Battlefront single-player mode, will reprise his role as Finn in 2017's Episode VIII. The movie will be "darker" and "bigger" than The Force Awakens, according to Boyega.

    Episode VIII, which finished shooting at the end of July, also stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Domhnall Gleeson, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.
