John’s statement backs up what he said to Mashable in 2017 and HuffPost in 2018, when he stated that fans already had their answer about Finn’s future relationship, hinting that the kiss with Rose Tico assured their relationship was the endgame. That being said, John has tweeted about StormPilot before, though such tweets may only be jokes.
Oscar has been a bit more outspoken about his disappointment in StormPilot not happening. To Variety, he said, “Personally, I kind of hoped and wished that maybe that would’ve been taken further in the other films, but I don’t have control. It seemed like a natural progression, but sadly enough it’s a time when people are too afraid, I think, of… I don’t know what. But if they would’ve been boyfriends, that would have been fun.”
