Oscar Isaac Says the Disney Overlords Weren't Ready for a Poe and Finn Romance


There has been a lot of discussions online regarding the relationship between Poe and Finn in this latest Star Wars trilogy. There were some fans that wanted to see their relationship blossom into something romantic, but nothing happened. I never really got the vibe that the characters were headed in that direction so I never expected anything to happen with them, but that doesn’t mean someone wasn’t pushing for it behind the scenes.

Oscar Isaac recently talked to IGN and in the interview, he said he tried to push for it, but the “Disney overlords” weren’t ready for it. He explained:

“I think there could’ve been a very interesting, forward-thinking – not even forward-thinking, just, like, current-thinking – love story there, something that hadn’t quite been explored yet; particularly the dynamic between these two men in war that could’ve fallen in love with each other. I would try to push it a bit in that direction, but the Disney overlords were not ready to do that.”

So, in the end, Finn and Poe’s relationship remained platonic. Ultimately, The Rise of Skywalker did feature a couple of women kiss at the end during a celebration. It was the first time a Star Wars movie represented any members of the LGBTQ+ community in a film. In regard to that, J.J. Abrams said:

“In the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film… I will say I’m giving away nothing about what happens in the movie. But I did just say what I just said.”

In the end, it seemed like a fleeting moment that wasn’t really pertinent to the story. But it did get cheers at one of the screenings of the film I attended.

What do you think about how Poe and Finn’s relationship was handled in the trilogy? Do you think it should have been more than what it was?
