NEW STAR WARS: Finn and Poe Arenít Boyfriends, but J.J. Abrams Hints at LGBTQ Representation
4 Dec 2019 — #CultureWars
Striking a lightsaber into the hearts of “Star Wars” fans, it appears that a romance between Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) will not materialize in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”
But that does not necessarily mean there won’t be any LGBTQ representation in the final film in the Skywalker saga, either.
The “Star Wars” fan community latched onto the notion of a romantic connection between Finn and Poe almost immediately after the premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in 2015, ‘shipping the characters with hashtags like “FinnPoe” and “Stormpilot.”
