Leia may not be a Princess anymore, but Luke could totally be a Queen!
Recently Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams said the franchise WOULD have its first openly gay character soon.

While many shippers are hoping for a Finn and Poe hookup, it could be an even more iconic character — Luke Skywalker!
Thanks to the latest comments by Mark Hamill, Luke's sexuality isn't as rigid as fans may have thought! He told The Sun:
"Fans are writing and ask all these questions, 'I'm bullied in school… I'm afraid to come out.' They say to me, 'Could Luke be gay?'
I'd say it is meant to be interpreted by the viewer. If you think Luke is gay, of course he is. You should not be ashamed of it. Judge Luke by his character, not by who he loves."
Great answer! But also kind of a tease…

He also responded to a fan with even more of a tease — and a MILD SPOILER, saying:
"[Luke's] sexuality is never directly addressed in the films."
Does that mean no love interest for Luke in Episode VIII?
Many fans have speculated the Jedi master will be revealed to be Rey's father. Obvi he could be and still be gay, but we wonder if they'd go that route…
What do YOU think??
