I decided to check out what was said because everyone in fandom is having a meltdown and honestly…that is what I expected?
Star Wars has never had a big, central to the plot romance? Even Han/Leia which is the example he used, was never really a major part of the story. Let alone a “centerpiece”. Padme and Anakin had more of a focus on Clone Wars, although it was still more about Anakin than them as a couple. In fact the way the romance was written has always been a major criticism of that movie (which again is likely why they don’t really want to write a major love story and risk a similar backlash).
If there is any romance in future films, we always knew it was going to be a small part of the film at best. Not the focus. And not central to the story. What we do know is that Finn and Rey’s relationship (be it platonic or romantic) is important. They love each other. Rey herself says she adores Finn. Finn risked his life for her. She risked hers for him. Finn and Rey are not Han and Leia, because they were never intended to be. Their interactions and dynamic are complete opposites of one another.
So yeah, i don’t think there will be a Han/Leia like romance in the film. Because neither character is Han and Leia.
