Still, while many questions from the Rise of Skywalker still remain, one big one just got answered.Obviously, spoilers for Rise of Skywalker follow…John Boyega has confirmed that Finn wasn't trying to confess his love for Rey in the Rise of Skywalker on Twitter:
As previously reported, at an Academy screening of the film, director J.J. Abrams told those in attendance what Finn's special message for Rey was.Over the past few days, Finn's mystery message, which he didn't want to reveal in front of Poe, has been the topic of friendly debate.

There you have it: In The Rise of Skywalker, Finn wanted to tell Rey that he was Force-sensitive too. Finn being Force-sensitive was something that played out on several occasions during the film, when Finn would somehow know, and feel, that Rey was in danger. Apparently, this is what he wanted to tell Rey, away from Poe's prying ears.For those who were hoping Finn might confess his love for a different member of the trilogy's core trio, see what Oscar Isaac had to say about Finn and Poe's (br)omance in the video below:Can't get enough Rise of Skywalker?
