John Boyega reveals why he was wearing on glove at ‘Star Wars’ premiere

John Boyega, who plays Stormtrooper-turnbed-rebel Finn in the upcoming, highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens revealed why he was wearing just one single black glove on his right hand.

Boyega confirmed that the glove is a reference to Luke Skywalker, who notoriously had his hand chopped off by his father, Darth Vader, in The Empire Strikes Back. In the third installment to the trilogy, Return of the Jedi, Skywalker wears a similar looking black glove over his prosthetic robotic hand.
