Lots of people think it was odd that the male lead and female lead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t actually get together.
But John Boyega, who is currently filming the next Star Wars installment, suggested the upcoming film would feature the much-pined for romance between Finn and Rey (Daisy Ridley). Sort of.
Speaking to Variety, Boyega said, ‘We didn’t establish a romance in seven; we never played it that way. Daisy and I, we’re friends. Finn and Rey — they’re just friends. Finn is a storm trooper, so he doesn’t really know what’s going on.”
He added, “The romance thing is something that’s going to be interesting in the next installment. It’s not going to go the way you think it’s going to go.”
Will they or won’t they? The answer awaits us galaxies away. Star Wars: Episode VIII will be released on December 15, 2017.
