There is a lot to look forward to in Star Wars: Episode IX. However, John Boyega may have just confirmed that fans shouldn't expect a romance between Finn and Rey anytime soon. The Star Wars: The Last Jedi actor just shut down the possibility with a devastating tweet.

Boyega recently posted a photo showing off his new hairstyle on social media. It had nothing to do with Episode IX, but it didn't take long before fans began commenting about things that could happen in the film. One follower asked in a now-deleted post if there was any chance that Finn and Rey will eventually get together in the third movie. Boyega's response was short and effective. Take a look at the tweet below.

Yikes. So much for any chances of a friendship leading to romance in Episode IX. Or maybe people are just asking about the wrong girl. After all, Finn spent most of The Last Jedi with Rose Tico and the two did share a kiss in the film. Unfortunately, it looks like the FinnRey ship is going down.

Although Rey isn't exactly Finn's type, that doesn't mean that Boyega doesn't get along with his Episode IX co-star Daisy Ridley. The two have bonded so much after working on three Star Wars films that they call each other "peanut."

We probably shouldn't expect Finn and Rey to get romantic but the two, along with Poe Dameron, are set for a huge mission in Episode IX. There have been speculations that the three main characters will be setting off for a new adventure in the upcoming film.

Star Wars: Episode IX is scheduled for release on December 20.
