Finn actor John Boyega also told the outlet that it “wouldn’t be too weird” if the men were more than just friends as they had always had a “loving” relationship, but the characters are “just platonic at the moment.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News) The final installment of the Skywalker saga, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which opens in theaters tomorrow, includes a scene where two women kiss in the midst of a celebration — a subtle means of inserting the sin of homosexuality into the ninth episode of the popular series.
“[I]n 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,” director J.J. Abrams told Variety earlier this month.
The representation turns out to be a scene where two extras in the film who are members of the Star Wars Resistance embrace and engage in a lesbian kiss during a celebration.
Adams had advised in 2017 that he was open to including homosexual characters in Star Wars, telling The Daily Wire at that time, “When I talk about inclusivity, it’s not excluding gay characters. It’s about inclusivity. So, of course. I would love it. To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counter-intuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.”
