Amid the entire lasers, spaceships, and supernatural powers, Star Wars is finally concerning the interpersonal drama between characters. There’s motion, comedy, and romance in each movie. Actually, the romance between Common Leia and the late Han Solo is well considered one of Hollywood’s most iconic love tales. Though The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson just lately confirmed a romance within the upcoming Episode VIII, it will not be something like Han and Leia as a result of the movie is about how these characters take care of the fallout of The Force Awakens. When requested concerning the doable love story in The Final Jedi, Rian Johnson mentioned:
It’s definitely true that there’s romantic drama, however there’s nothing the identical as the 2 lovers of Han and Leia, this time [laughs]. This film, which is after the ending moments of The Power Awakens, every character was starting to stroll their very own path. So, my responsibility was to dig down into: the place do these paths go for every character?
So there will certainly be some semblance of romance in The Final Jedi. In any case, it would not be a Star Wars film with out a minimum of one love story someplace within the combine. That mentioned, per Rian Johnson’s remarks to Yahoo! Japan (quote translation by way of Comicbook.com), the movie is not leaning headfirst into that sort of narrative due to the place it lies within the general Star Wars timeline. The wounds of The Force Awakens are nonetheless contemporary, which implies the movie is extra concerning the private journey for every particular person character.
Ultimately, it’s in all probability for the very best that the Star Wars franchise is just not attempting to recreate the Han and Leia love story on this new trilogy. The fashionable period of movies already echoes the unique trilogy in quite a few key methods, so together with one more romance like that may really feel a bit an excessive amount of like an homage. We’re nonetheless undecided which characters will really develop a relationship (it may very well be Finn and Rey, or even Finn and Poe for all we all know), however it appears like Star Wars is earnestly attempting to interrupt the mould with the creation of this new love story.
