Some Star Wars fans believe that Star Wars is laying the ground work in its new blockbuster, The Force Awakens, for a future gay romance in a subsequent movie.
In the recently released movie, resistance pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) demonstrate a relationship that some fans believe may mature into something steamier.
Many film viewers aren’t finding any compelling romantic chemistry between the lead female, Rey (Daisy Ridley) and the Poe or Finn characters. So some fans are jumping to the conclusion that it will be Poe and Finn who find love with one another.
Online, eager and creative fans have seized on this theory and begun turning out fanfiction stories, as well as producing artwork, dedicated to the pair, such as:
On the show Ellen, Oscar Isaac eluded to a blooming romantic relationship: “I think it’s very subtle romance that’s happening.” He did not refer to the characters involved and did not use gender specific pronouns. “You know, you have to just look very close — you have to watch it a few times to see the little hints. But there was.”
I guess we will just have to stay tuned to find out for sure… May the gay force be with you.
