Following hints from J.J. Abrams that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker would include an LGBTQ moment or character, the film’s premiere on Monday revealed the scene to which the director was referring.
In a celebration sequence in the film, two female members of the Resistance share an exuberant kiss during the joyful moment. They are minor characters and not heavily featured in the film.
The move in Star Wars comes after the Marvel Cinematic Universe debuted its first openly gay character in Avengers: Endgame, with a man played by co-director Joe Russo in a group therapy session.
