Throughout the most recent Star Wars Sequel Trilogy there were constant reports that Disney was contemplating revealing that Poe Dameron and Finn were a couple. Both John Boyega and Oscar Isaac spoke in support of the idea but nothing was officially confirmed. But what if there was already a major male relationship at the heart of the original Star Wars trilogy? What if Luke's infamous almost hook-up with his twin sister wasn't actually the biggest surprise in his love life?
Acclaimed screenwriter Russell T Davies knows a thing or two about bringing diversity to the screen.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch episode 5 review: "Several twists keep you on your toes" Star Wars: The Bad Batch episode 5 “Rampage” has several twists that will keep you on your toes, but no matter which way it goes, Omega's importance to the Batch remains crystal clear.

Carrie told the crowd at the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo: "He wouldn't take me on that hyperspace thing enough... [that's a] euphemism. Not enough. You know, we've been together a while."
And by euphemism, yes, she's referring to sex. Asked if the 'hyperspace' "gets old" after that long together, Carrie shot back: "No, no it doesn't."
However, it was her sci-fi solution to ageing sex drives that really tickled the fans when she teased: "We've got robots for that."

"Hanging out with the hairy guy (Chewie) too often... I think there are a lot of problems with that."
