CNET Magazine, profiles several Disney properties in their latest issue.

The cover features actor John Boyega, the new hero of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” who describes what being an action figure feels like – both on the big screen and as a toy brought to life in the new “Star Wars” videogame. Boyega also talks about the impact of science fiction on culture, what he brings to the character of Finn and his favorite moment working with director J.J. Abrams.

“We were thrilled to sit down with John Boyega, the new hero of the ‘Star Wars’ saga, to discuss how tech helped him prepare for the movie, the role of science fiction in modern day commentary and his love of gaming,” said Mark Larkin, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CNET.
