    Anthony Breznican at Entertainment Weekly, again, gives us a sneak peek into more details of The Last Jedi. This time, we get a closer look at the relationship between Finn and Rose and a little bit about what all the characters will be doing throughout the movie.







    It is revealed that Finn is still struggling with the temptation to walk away from anything that has to do with the war, including the Resistance.
    [​IMG]



    The newcomer to the film, Rose Tico, played by Kelly Marie Tran, is discussed as being a “nobody”. Boyega mentions that she is only involved because the First Order destroyed her home. All our main heroes from The Force Awakens are fairly well known in the galaxy now for their help in the destruction of Starkiller Base. Rose, a Resistance mechanic, is not important to the grand scheme of things: at least not yet. Her sister Paige, played by Veronica Ngo, is a pilot with Poe Dameron and is more well known than Rose.



    Rose looks up to these heroes and gives Finn, in particular, something to live up to and something to fight for.



    [​IMG]



    Director Rian Johnson gives us some insight into whether The Last Jedi will mirror plot elements of The Empire Strikes Back as did The Force Awakens to A New Hope.

    [​IMG]



    Johnson also discusses that the films are similar in that some of our heroes venture to a luxurious city. This time, it's not Cloud City but it's Canto Bight, what Johnson describes as “Vegas with Aliens”.



    It seems like the relationship that Rose and Finn will have will be very critical to the decisions that Finn makes throughout the movie. I'm also surprised to see the similarities to The Empire Strikes Back, yet it sounds like Johnson is confident that the movie is unique enough to not seem like a rehash of the 1980 film.



    Here's Breznican's video on Finn and Rose:








    Do you think that all the sequel trilogy movies will parallel the originals in some way? What is your thoughts on Finn and Rose’s relationship thus far? Let us know in the comments and in the Cantina what you think!

    Finn and Rose will have romantic bound.But with all respect Han Solo's and Leia's romance can not and must not be copied.Everyone who will try this is not worth to write a scenario for kindergarden puppet show.They'l have romance but I hope any" hommage" to Han and Leia's immortal love must be avoided.

    History Does Repeat Itself In our world, so there's NO reason why it cannot in AGalaxy Far Far Away.

    As far as Finn and Rose ... Dunno, ain't been told about that yet.

    Outter Rim, not Unknown Regions.

    Outer Rim is both very close and very far away from the Unknown Regions (and therefore The First Order,) so it makes sense for him to flee somewhere in that area.

    TBH, I thought Rose was a boy at first glance. I think she's a really unusual casting choice for a blockbuster. Not conventionally good looking or 'beautiful'. I just hope she has the charm/charisma like Mark and Carrie (also not conventionally...) did.

    I can't believe that they will try to "force" a romance between Finn and Rose. Sure, she looks up to him and he probably gets an ego boost from her fan-girling but I think that's about it. And to compare their potential thing to Han and Leia is a disservice to Han and Leia. They had a history from ANH. I also think that Finn goes along with Rose could stem from other reasons, not romantic: 1) he feels guilty because he had a role in her sister dying and/or feels sorry for Rose for her sister dying (if she even does die and it's towards the beginning of the film), 2) Rose's admiration for Finn gets the better of him and he maybe believes the hype of how much of a "Big Deal" he really is or 3) he finally caves to go with her/take her with him because he doesn't want her to go alone and kill herself. Again, I could be completely off, but that's just what I'm feeling right now. Don't hold me to it though, come December... ;)

    VF quoted Rian saying there was no Han/Leia romance in VIII.

    To be sure, what I said was plain.
    I mentioned No names.
    As such, None should be added to what I said.

    The dynamic between Finn and Rose is apparently something different than I expected. I hope the "starstruck" aspect won't be overdone. Nevertheless, the whole idea for Finn's development sounds very promising.

    Seems anyone who is a hero doesn't wanna be or struggles with being put on a pedestal in TLJ. Even Poe which seems to maybe resist wanting to be a leader instead of a hotshot pilot. I like that.

    Maybe Finn and Rose will make a good Friendship that many will appear it is a romance, it clear Finn has a thing for Rey, that is openly clear:
    I'm not Resistance. I'm not a hero. I'm a stormtrooper. Like all of them, I was taken from a family I'll never know. And raised to do one thing. But my first battle, I made a choice. I wasn't gonna kill for them. So I ran. Right into you. And you looked at me like no one ever had. I was ashamed of what I was. But I'm done with the First Order. I'm never going back. Rey, come with me.

    It is clear Finn has something for Rey:



    Finn: We came back for you.

    [Chewie says something]

    Finn: What'd he say?

    Rey: That it was your idea.

    [Rey hugs Finn]

    Rey: Thank you.

    Finn: How did you get away?

    Rey: I can't explain it. And you wouldn't believe it.

    Han Solo: Escape now, hug later.
    Do Rey fell the same, some say her kiss on his forehead at the end was a sign of her friendship with Finn.
    So I can't see Finn have a love romance with Rose, rather I see Rose being an inspirational for Finn once he finds out how many look up to him and see him as a hero for taking up Kylo Ren and surviving, and helping destroy star killer base, and coming up with the plan to get the shields down, Finn is now a Big Deal, and that he will see from Rose, and how he will make his final choice to help the Resistance and develop his character and finish his hero's journey.

    Yeah, "has a thing for Rey"...
    My thoughts on it are that their two folks who fate threw together in a bad situation and they stuck by each other and a friendship came outta it.

    Can friendships happen through hard times ?
    Does it Always gotta be romantical ?

    I mean... she kissed him on the forehead before goin' on her journey coz she cared about him as I friend's what I saw...

    I will be more than a little bit disappointed if there is too much ESB in TLJ. They already have the split Force/Resistance plot lines, an old Jedi guard potentially teaching the last of his kind. I kind of feel like there are enough combinations and permutations of words to create a story that doesn't rely on a template
