Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson talks possibility of Rey, Kylo Ren sex scene


In a recent panel, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Rian Johnson discusses if we should expect a Star Wars sex scene with the duo moving forward.

With Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropping on Blu “Rey” in two weeks and the digital copy out today, more details on the film and its characters are surfacing. The novelization for The Last Jedi reveals more information about Snoke, Luke Skywalker and his Jedi Academy, and the special connection between Rey and Kylo Ren.

Speaking of “Reylo,” in a recent panel promoting The Last Jedi, writer/director of the film Rian Johnson discusses the unique bond between the two power Force users. He even mentions the possibility of a Rey and Kylo Ren sex scene, and his true intentions for their “hand touching” scene.

"“One of my favorite shots of the movie, is those two fingers touching. That’s the cloest thing we’ll get to a sex scene in a Star Wars movie."

Hamill (himself) chimes in, like the actual “Ham,” that he is, generating a roar from the audience.

"“I didn’t even get that.”"

And, considering that Luke Skywalker’s only chance at “love” was with his sister Leia, it was for the best. But I digress.

Let’s focus on what Rian Johnson says in regards to Rey and Kylo’s intimate scene. The chemistry between Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley is (surprisingly) fantastic and meant to be.

Johnson is flat-out saying he intended this moment to be a “sex-like” scene. For Star Wars, that’s pretty shocking and ground-breaking.

But, is this now our first step into a larger world? Will we see an actual sex scene in a galaxy far, far away?

Weiss and Beinhoff, who are responsible for bringing Game of Thrones to live-action now tasked with a Star Wars trilogy.

Sex scenes in GOT are as familiar as Skywalkers losing limbs, so will they continue that with their new trio of films? Honestly, I hope not, and I don’t think so.

Even though Star Wars has always included adult themes, much of the franchise’s content’s creation is with a younger audience in mind. Bringing this element into this universe is a bad idea. And, don’t expect to see it anytime soon — if ever.

But, those of you who are ambassadors of “Reylo,” can now sleep easy knowing that their connection in the Force is indeed sexual and physical in nature, opening up endless possibilities for Episode IX and beyond.
