Yesterday on the podcast, I talked about half of the Vanity Fair article that covers five things in The Last Jedi and five things that aren’t. Yesterday’s was the things that are … today, you guessed it, is about the things that aren’t.
That being said, there’s some wiggle room in what Rian Johnson and John Boyega are saying. For example, when Rian Johnson says there’s not a big, central-to-the plot romance, here’s the direct quote from Johnson about it:
[There is] no one-to-one equivalent of the Han-to-Leia, burning, unrequited love. In our story, that’s not a centerpiece.
To me, that doesn’t mean that we won’t have any romance in the movie at all … just that it won’t form a major part of the plot of the story. What about you? Do you think this leaves room for there being a romantic subplot in the movie? Share your thoughts in the comments!
