Give Poe Dameron something cool to do with the other main characters

2 years agoopen0

One of the great things about the original trilogy was the character dynamics it created. The wise-cracking Han Solo played so well off of serious Princess Leia and bright-eyed Luke, and over the three films they all grew closer and changed together.

But in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, only Rey and Finn and then Finn and Rose form any sort of relationship or friendship. Rey only briefly meets Poe Dameron, and Poe and Finn only spend that one escape scene together until the end. There is no scene of all our new characters on a ship together flying off on some crazy adventure. Rey wouldn’t have fled Ahch-To to go save Poe Dameron.

I do love how the new movies have focused on developing the weird bond between Rey and Kylo Ren, but I miss the fun camaraderie of the original trilogy. It’s not too late, though! Episode IX can bring our core characters together for an awesome adventure before invariably breaking them all apart for the final showdown. I want to see Poe Dameron and Chewie piloting the Millennium Falcon while Rey and Finn man the guns and Rose fixes the damaged reactor or whatever. Get the group together!
