5 Reasons Stormpilot is Real
Oscar Issac On "Playing Romance"
1. The Actors Sort-of Confirmed It
The actor who plays Poe Dameron, Oscar Issac said on The Ellen Show "I think that there is a subtle romance that is happening. You have to just look very closely, you have to watch it a few times to see the little hint but there was. At least I was playing romance. In the cockpit I was playing there was a deep romance there." Then John Boyega nodded and later confirmed that he too was playing a romantic role. Also, originally Poe Dameron was supposed to die (Thank goodness he didn't!), but he was kept on by J.J Abrams for some unknown reason. Many believe that he was kept on as a potential love interest for Finn.
2.Poe gives Finn an identity...and his jacket
Thanks to Poe, Finn is no longer an unknown stormtrooper, he has his own identity. After just minutes of spending time with each other, they form a lifetime connection. Then when reunited, they embrace each other as if they'd been friends forever. Afterwards, Poe gives Finn his jacket saying that it suited him. AKA Finn looked so hot in his jacket he had to give it to him.
3.Finn and Poe have many "shippable" moments
There are various scenes in the movie where Poe and Finn seem to care about each other in a romantic way. For example, the way they preformed the classic run and hug scene was adorable. Also, Poe's lip bite when he tells Finn his jacket suits him tells us that he thinks Finn looks hot in his jacket. Also, despite being a runaway stormtrooper, Finn was immediately trusted by the members of the resistance. This was no doubt due to Poe's constant talk about his admiration for Finn.
4. Rey and Finn behave like siblings
Rey doesn't really seem to have any romantic interest towards Finn. Due to the loss of her family, Rey sees Finn as a brother and Han Solo as a father figure. Never did she once look at Finn in a romantic way or seem interested in romance in general. Perhaps, she's not at that point in which she wants to be in a relationship. While, there was that one hand holding scene between Rey and Finn, many suggest that this is only because he felt protective over REy.
5.It's about time
Many major franchises fail to recognize members of the LGBTQIA+ community and it sucks. Imagine if a franchise as big as Star Wars had queer representation. Perhaps, then other movies would feature more non-straight characters. It seems as if many movies and tv shows cower when it comes to same-sex relationships. Making Finn and Poe a major win for those in the LGBTQIA+ community.
