“The Final Jedi” picked up these threads and threw them away … actually.
“The Pressure Awakens” novelisation author Alan Dean Foster has spoken about being instructed to undermine the connection between Finn and Rey.
“I anticipated to see that developed additional in [‘The Last Jedi’]. And nil occurred with it. And everyone knows why zero occurred with it — and there’s no want to enter it in-depth — however that’s, sadly, simply the best way issues are.”
As Boyega stated
“I’m the one solid member whose expertise of Star Wars was primarily based on their race”
Johnson had completely dismantled Finn and pushed the Ren-Rey romantic relationship as the important thing one on this trilogy.
Driver stated that the unique conception of the character was to begin susceptible and develop into extra emotionally closed off and extra highly effective because the sequence progressed. That is what he was pitched by Abrams.
Kylo ends “The Pressure Awakens” scarred, having murdered a few father figures and completely rejected by Rey. He begins Johnson’s movie along with his shirt off and Rey making googly eyes at this faculty shooter.
Johnson admitted that he noticed Rey and Kylo in TFA as the start of a “romantic” and “intimate” dynamic. She noticed him homicide his father and her mentor and Johnson felt that was “romantic” and “intimate”?
