novelist Alan Dean Foster has claimed to remove a possible romance between John Boyega’s Finn and Daisy Ridley’s Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The writer who was brought in by JJ Abrams to write the official draft of the 2015 film, also known as Episode VII.
But in a recent interview with Midnight’s Edge, Foster claimed his original idea for a budding romance between Finn and Rey was shot down by bosses at Disney.
« There were a few things in there and a few things that happened later that bothered me, » he said. « I’m going to tell you one thing that got me out because enough time has passed. I don’t think it’s important. There was obviously the beginning of a relationship between John Boyega’s character and Daisy Ridley’s character. I expected that to evolve into Episode VIII (The Last Jedi), and nothing happened with that. ”
Instead, the films attempted to develop a romance between Finn and Kelly Marie Trans Rose Tico – but the plot was abandoned on The Rise of Skywalker in 2019.
