John Boyega has revealed that he is all onboard for a romance between Finn and Rey in Star Wars: Episode IX.
While it is nearly two years until Episode IX will arrive at cinema screens, the talk about what might happen in the movie never stops. Boyega has recently said that he would like Finn to have a longer fight scene in the next Star Wars film but has also revealed who he wants to end up with romantically.
The Last Jedi showed the potential for a romance between Finn and Rose but according to Boyega, while speaking to /Film, its Rey that Finn should end up with when it’s all said and done:
“Because Finn is the one character, for me, who has a distinct, unique relationship with everybody. He had this kind of banterous relationship with Han, then he has this loving relationship with Rey. Now with Rose, it feels like he has this great relationship. Personally? Rey. Yeah, Rey.”
Finn and Rey certainly formed a strong connection during The Force Awakens and while The Last Jedi saw the two separated for the vast majority of events, perhaps Boyega will get his wish in the final film of the trilogy.
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
