Gay Star Wars Characters Could Be Coming Out

Poe and Finn

In a progressive galaxy which is now home to both a female Jedi, and a person of color as a Stormtrooper we are finding out that a homosexual character may not be too far far away.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has recently opened up about how we wanted make the film “look the way the world looks.” Fans have been clamoring for more diversity and they may just be getting it.  “When I talk about inclusivity its not excluding gay characters, it’s about inclusivity so of course,” he told reporters at the US-Ireland Alliance Oscar Wilde Awards on Thursday. “To me the fun of Star Wars is exploring the possibilities, so it seems insanely narrow minded to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.”

Some fans have already begun speculating on whether or not one or more gay characters may have already been introduced in the newest installment of the franchise and wondering if John Boyega and Oscar Isaac character’s, Poe and Finn, are involved in more than just a “bro”mance.  In a recent interview Boyega noted that it wouldn’t be an impossible development and as with all things in Star Wars, you never know.

There are no details on when to expect an openly gay character in the Star Wars franchise. “Star Wars: Episode VIII” has begun filming and is set for a December 2017 release, Walt Disney Co. announced earlier this month.
