As Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker approaches in lower than two months, many fan questions are nonetheless piling up. In between curiosity regarding Palpatine’s return and the way in Yoda’s title the film goes to conclude the enduring Skywalker Saga, right here’s one other one: will Finn ever discover love? John Boyega’s Star Wars character has typically been outlined by his many attainable romances – whether or not it was holding arms with Rey, borrowing Poe Dameron’s jacket in Force Awakens or that kiss with Rose Tico on the finish of The Last Jedi. As Boyega just lately put it, his relationship standing is one thing of a “love pentagon.”
Then, when Poe strikes on to Rose Tico, it appears to be the identical story:
Poe responds with a humorous quip, saying he can’t sustain with all his ‘friends’ earlier than Finn admits he has a little bit of a missing love life. This is the half the place Poe/Finn shippers say: “Here’s your moment, Poe! Swoop in!” Since when did the brand new Star Wars trilogy have traces compariable to a rom-com? It’s all saved for the novels, I guess. While I wouldn’t count on an alternate like this in Rise of Skywalker, the novel is canon and appears to be taking pictures down any new hope for Finn to discover a romance inside the Resistance.
Lines corresponding to this virtually appear tailored to supply particular followers solutions to their questions, and provides the saga a loophole to fail to deal with it within the upcoming film. Rise of Skywalker actually has stronger issues at hand to deal with apart from Finn’s love life, however the sequence does appear to maintain leaving romantic potentialities as free ends time and time once more. It was a shock when The Last Jedi pursued a possible love triangle between Finn, Rey and Rose by the top, and left some followers oddly rooting for the Reylo relationship.
When requested, John Boyega known as Finn the “most eligible bachelor in the galaxy” who’s single and able to mingle. Yet he additionally defined the backdrop of his life is a ”very distracting place to fall in love,” as you may most likely think about! Maybe Finn will all the time be recognized for his difficult musings for his fellow Resistance fighters and not using a true payoff? Or possibly Rise of Skywalker will tackle this facet of the franchise?
Kelly Marie Tran has teased that Rose Tico has risen within the ranks since The Last Jedi from engineer assist crew to a Resistance navy commander who leads the Engineering Corps. We’ll should see how issues play out when The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.
Who would you match Finn with if he had a romantic storyline in Rise of Skywalker?
