Star Wars Episode VIII Director Totally Ships Finn and Poe

Fly on, Stormpilot shippers.

So you’ve probably seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens at least twice at this point, right? A lot of people right now think that two of the film’s protagonists, Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) should be a thing, and since the movie released, the ship has already been dubbed Stormpilot. And apparently, those fans aren’t alone.

Rian Johnson, director of Looper who’s currently writing and directing Episode VIII, tweeted a fan art from Tumblr user Jeffrey Winger of the two men smooching while Rey gave an enthusiastic high five. Also, BB-8’s there, because it’s BB-8.

Adorable, right? Naturally, fans of the Finn/Poe ship lost their damn minds when they saw Rian tweet it out.

Will Poe and Finn become an item over the new trilogy? We won’t know for sure until Star Wars 8 hits theaters in May of next year. But for now, rest assured, shippers: Rian’s aware of your passion and seems to support it.
