Bad news for anyone who was hoping for a Finn & Poe relationship in Star Wars

Looks like they're more than friends, but not in a romantic way.

Cast your minds back to 2015, and the release of The Force Awakens.

J.J. Abrams introduced the world to a whole host of new Star Wars characters, and almost all of them went down an absolute treat.

And two of most audiences' favourite new characters were Finn and Poe, who had incredible chemistry from the second they stepped on screen together.

So much so that fans started to believe that the two could be more than friends, which was made all the more possible in a scene where Poe bit his lip, right after saying to Finn "keep my jacket, it looks better on you".

They were flirting!

But sadly, it looks like there's no romance between the two, according to director of the upcoming Star Wars movie The Rise of Skywalker, J.J. Abrams.

Speaking to Variety, he said: "That relationship to me is a far deeper one than a romantic one.

"It is a deep bond that these two have, not just because of the trial by fire in which they met, but also because of their willingness to be as intimate as they are, as afraid as they, as unsure as they are, and still be bold, and still be daring and brave."

He did allude to the possibility of a LGBTQ character featuring in the upcoming movie though, saying: "And in the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film."

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will hit cinemas on 19 December.
