Star Wars: Even Rian Johnson Supports the Finn/Poe Romance

Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there have been some people who have wanted a romance between Finn and Poe. The bromance between the two characters actually continued with The Last Jedi, and now even Rian Johnson is showing his support of the pairing online.

UPDATE: The tweet has been deleted by Johnson, but it was picture with the caption: "Now kiss."

Another avid supporter of the ship is Oscar Isaac himself, and he has jokingly expressed his disappointment in the film for having Rose kissing Finn toward the end. Even the picture above is another testament to the Finn/Poe pairing—that's a deleted scene where Poe gives Finn his old jacket, revealing that he's painstakingly tried to stitch it up himself.


We don't know if Disney would be ballsy enough to have a gay romance revealed in Star Wars Episode IX, but it would certainly be a move that would split the fandom up once more. Even just the mention of the Finn/Poe pairing is enough to piss off conservative fanboys in the comment section. Imagine the reaction if we got even just a shot of Finn and Poe holding hands.

We don't know where J.J. Abrams is going to take the story for Star Wars Episode IX, but hopefully it makes as many risky moves as The Last Jedi did. With The Force Awakens ending up such a predictable film, I'm hoping Abrams makes more setpieces that we don't see coming.

Star Wars Episode IX comes out Dec. 20, 2019.
