Apparently Kathleen Kennedy is pushing for a gay romance between Poe and Finn for Episode 9. Her reasoning is that's what the fans want. Whatever. Sounds like unnecessary pandering and retreading what we've already seen. The main badguy Emo McHugenose would work as a lonely angry closeted gay man with daddy issues. It already sounds way more believable and less forced than whatever they come up with.

That would pretty much be the end of the series. The romance in Star Wars has always been kind of "romance lite" until Episode 1 - 3's idiot Anakin stuff and those movies kind of showed that romance really has no place in your action adventure.

You start having on-screen male-on-male kissing in Star Wars and the series is pretty much dead.

It's a children's series, they don't need to inject Hollywood political correctness.

The plan is to retread the Han and Leia romance with Poe and Finn. Kathleen Kennedy is a big time lib and runs the show, so it's definitely happening and in the most unrealistic and uncomfortable way possible.

It wouldn't surprise me. I'm sure that will be easy to get past the Chinese censors.

That must be why they introduced Aya, played by Kelly Marie Tran, to be Finn's love interest.

With as bug an important as the Chinese market had become (the US box office has been usurped - get used to it), there's absolutely no way they'd introduce a gay couple utilizing two main characters. It's illegal to depict homosexual relationships on screen in China; pairing Poe and Finn would require excessive amounts of rewriting for the Chinese version of the film.

It ain't gonna happen, because of the almighty international box office dollar.

Sounds like the Chinese version is the one to pirate, thanks.

At least Disney and progressive Hollywood have their morals/values in proper order! Hollywood is SO brave. For a great example of their bravery and willingness to risk losing any of the filthy lucre they worship, look to Richard Gere (someone who takes a public stance unpopular with the Chinese dictatorship) and see how that's working out for his film career. They'd sell a Jew to the ovens if that's what it took to get into Germany's market.
