Warning! if you have not yet seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, you should not continue reading the article. For the others, let’s find out together what Finn wanted to say to Rey (and he didn’t want Poe to know) in the film.
In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker there were moments dedicated to the main trio and useful to show us the dynamics between its components, Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Isaac). Among these, one of the most intriguing (which has also been repeated in other iterations, in the course of the feature film) is the one in which Finn, stuck together with the others in Pasana’s quicksand, tries to confess something to Rey, but without succeeding. A little later, when asked what he meant, Finn refuses to complete the sentence, even annoying Poe, who takes it out on being excluded from the conversation.
But if many thought that before the end of the film they would have had answers about it … Well, suffice it to say that it was not so. The Rise of Skywalker ends without revealing Finn’s “secret”.
JJ Abrams, director of the film, however, clarified the thing at the end of a Q&A that followed the screening of episode IX, answering a fan’s question (away from the microphones, but not from the ears of a Twitter user who has it then revealed to the rest of the web).
Well, Finn did not mean, as perhaps many have thought, that he is in love with Rey, but … That he too can perceive the Force.
Viewers were already aware of this fact, but apparently Rey has never been involved in it.
What do you think of this confession? Let us know in the comments.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is currently in theaters.
