    Certainly in 30 years Luke has had a love interest or two. I believe Lucas has said star wars is about the Skywalker Family, unlike " Rebels".

    Maybe Lando Calrissian had a sister that Luke came to love in last 30 years...

    Finn... I AM YOUR FATHER

    Well

    We all know that Lobot is Lukes brother so Finn might be Lobots son!!!!!

    If JJ and Kasdan makes this storry right Finn is not force sensitive and he is not a Skywalker.
    But how about the lightsaber fighting. Well we seen Stormtroopers with electrostaffs and Finn IS a stormtrooper. So his skills comes from practis at the first order.
    No need for Finn to be the new hope. I dout he is.

    Must be a real source of anxiety, that he's going to be FORCE Sensitive. Lol.
    The idea that if he's Force Sensitive, then they got it wrong is way out there.

    Let Finn be the soldier that turns side because he don't like the first orders evil war.
    It will be much more fun that just another Jedi super hero.

    Beside if he is just Finn the stormy he will bring some of the fun that Han Solo brought to OT.

    And I still think JJ and Kasdan got it wrong if Finn turns out to be force sensitive, I bet Snoke or maybe Kylo Ren would noticed it.

    This is simply projecting on your end. Finn doesn't have to be stuck a box or a rehashing of Han Solo. Let Finn be whatever JJ makes him. According to John he's Han AND Luke (the Jedi Knight). Finn can still have similarly to Han and also be FORCE Sensitive and a Jedi. Kyle Katarn was a ex-Stormtrooper turned Jedi Knight, with similarities to Han and Luke. No reason Finn can't be that, instead of a lazy rehash.

    Vader didn't notice Leia standing right in front of him and the "Force Awakens", meaning exactly what Awakens means.

    But that's that my opinion.

    The answer to the question in the title is yes he could be Luke's. Which is a different question than IS Finn Luke's son? That answer is most likely not. There is a possibility of it but in all reality it is not likely going to be the case.

    I think it's more lazy just to make him a force sensitive " to become Jedi in another episode ".

    Okay we don't know how the first order works. BUT there is the knights of ren. I bet they are force sensitives and I bet the knights of ren are looking for new FORCE sensitives member. (or just kill them off) So why did they not spot old Finn? I feel this can be a big scale plot hole.

    Can you explain how the story would be "right" if Finn is not force sensitive. Just curious.
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 27, 2015, Original Post Date: Nov 27, 2015 ---
    As was said before, Vader never noticed Leia had the force, and he is the OG Jedi.

    And wouldn't it be cool to have two Jedi, who are both very different with upbringings that are also not the same to make things fresh?

    No that sounds like PT. Ani and Obi. We need some new.

    Besides in Episode I Qui-Gon did a midiclorian count on Anakin. So why don't the empire or first order do the same?

    You ask me how the would be right. it's had to say but i don't like lazy and easy plots. Like Finn the stormy that saves the day.
    I bet that Kylo beats him real hard and shows the difference of a force user and a stormtrooper. Now who saves the day? Luke, Leia, Maze. We realy don't know. (I bet it will be Maze)

    Or, maybe Luke had a wife that cheated on him with Lando, and Lando is Finn's father and Luke only thinks Finn is his son. Much like Dale and Joseph Gribble, Luke and Finn Skywalker are the only ones who seem unaware of basic genetics, and are completely convinced they are father and son. Luke and Finn will be buddying around through the movie, having father-son bonding moments; meanwhile Lando keeps hanging around in the background, trying to give Finn a "precious Bespin heirloom that has been in my family for generations, passed from father to son" and Finn is all "Uh okay, dude; thanks for the great heirloom weirdo." and Lando just cannot connect.

    In fact, perhaps the big reveal this time comes from Lando, "I know what they told you about your father" "Luke is my father!" "No, Finn- I am your father." "That's not true! THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!" "Look in the mirror, Finn, you know it to be true!"

    Only because I am partial to Mara Jade I would not be on board with that. However, if he is an adopted son that Luke takes under his wing that would be cool.

    If Rey (which I doubt now) is not Luke's daughter and Luke followed the traditional way of the Jedi order, having Finn as sort of an adopted son he never had could be a great idea.

    I do not agree.

    Lucas made it clear in the prequels that the Jedi way is celibacy. If Luke is a true Jedi, then you forget about a love interest.

    At this point Finn almost has to be force sensitive. All the lightsaber action we see him in almost proves it. This is not Han weilding the a lightsaber for a second in order to cut open a tauntaun Finn seems to be using that lightsaber in several scenes so he darn well better be force sensitive. There is a reason non force sensitives don't weild lightsabers in the swg its way to dangerous and they can only be used effectively by a force sensitive.


    As for the person who pointed out that the First Order should have realized he was force sensitive, sure that would be a plot hole. But this is a jj abrahams movie his films are full of plot holes so get ready for many many more.

    Sure!

    The resemblance is uncanny:

    .......no, that wouldn't make any sense. It would be a dumb idea, and terrible if Finn were Luke's biological kid.




    Better question though:

    Separated at birth?

    I guess it could be just as possible as Rey or Kylo. Just don't know about Luke letting the FO kidnap him and train him for 20 years without some kind of intervention.

    All is possible and race was not considered in casting. My guess is no but certainly possible. I'm really leaning toward him being related to someone well known but not as a son but cousin, nephew..etc

    It's possible that he could be his son. There is this thing called adoption. Luke sister, Leia was adopted and even carried that last name instead of Skywalker. Maybe Finn (who last name is hidden) is related to a certain Jedi/force sensitive lineage and Luke simply adopted him after his parents were killed and he was taken by the FO. That would make him his son. Of course, with Finn there is a limited amount of imagination or possibility for some reason.

    I can see a bit of a resemblance there....

    You're just not using your sixth sense people.

    And who cares? It's Star Wars...sci-fi FANTASY. Normal world rules don't apply here.

    I say to hell with it....make FInn Luke's Son.
