Rey and Finn are undoubtedly some of my favorite characters in the Star Wars franchise. Their stories would end up being yo-yo’d all over the place as different creative minds came together to create a trilogy that sometimes doesn’t feel that cohesive. Such as Finn’s Force-sensitivity.
It seems pretty blunt in The Force Awakens that Rey and Finn both had the Force, only Rey was more powerful than he was, but that doesn’t mean he’s supposedly weaker. He was just where Luke was at the beginning of his journey in A New Hope.
The Last Jedi completely eliminated Finn’s potential chance to grow in the Force-sensitive realm which Abrams had to pick up in The Rise of Skywalker, leading to what felt like a wasted opportunity for Finn’s chance to be a Jedi alongside Rey.
For this week’s concept, I’m sharing a piece my sister did a while back showcasing Finn and Rey as Jedi Knights. It’s expectedly pretty awesome.
What if we actually got to see this one day? I don’t know what I’d do! It would undoubtedly be one of my favorite things to ever happen in Star Wars. So, let’s hope Disney understands the greatness of this and decides to make this dream a reality as well.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
