"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" revealed the truth about Rey's (Daisy Ridley) parentage, but it looks like this detail is not set in stone.

Warning: Spoilers to follow for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. However, the end of the film did offer a few hints about what is to come and one of those hints was the implication that Rey and Poe could perhaps become romantically involved. Here, the actress outlined why she believes Rey's relationship with Poe should remain platonic.

"With all of these movies, Obi-Wan's whole speech about a certain point of view always applies, so I think that you have to always think about the context of how information is given", Johnson continued. Can Rey resist Poe?

And although Poe and Rey had a conversation that mirrored Han and Leia's iconic "I know" sequence, Ridley told Mtime that Episode 9 doesn't need such a relationship. "But I think it doesn't, for me, it doesn't have to be romantic love". So, I think, hopefully, if Rey and Poe get to have some scenes together and stuff that there will be intimacy, but I think, for me, it doesn't have to be romantic. It is kind of odd to think that we are two movies into this trilogy and Rey and Poe have only shared one scene together.

Star Wars IX is expected in cinemas 20 December, 2019. Romantic relationships aren't a requirement for all films and sometimes it is more beneficial not to have one. Whether folks were upset about Luke Skywalker getting killed off, or if they were were peeved to see Snoke bite the big one, quite a few fans walked out of The Last Jedi with a gripe or two.

And no matter how much we criticize the romance genre, we can't deny the satisfaction we get when the sun sets, the score crescendos and the hero and the heroine kisses. The prequel trilogies had Anakin (Hayden Christensen) and Padme's (Natalie Portman) affair, which was in contradiction with the Jedi religion.

Now on its fourth script, Star Wars IX is being overhauled by new director JJ Abrams. When it comes to Rey, romance is a question that comes up.
