Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit theaters this past Friday and it has been getting a lot of mixed reviews. It recently debuted at $176 million opening weekend, which is the lowest out of the trilogy. The film is currently sitting at a 56% critic and 86% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
During a live panel for the film, our very own Kaila Spencer was in attendance and tweeted out what Finn wanted to say to Rey during the quicksand scene early on in the film. JJ Abrams goes on to say that Finn wanted to tell her that he was force sensitive. When looking back at the film, Finn does show signs that he is attuned with the force; in addition, there are several moments where Finn feels situations in the force, a lot dealing with Rey herself.

There’s no explanation on why the director left it out of the film, but it may show up in a deleted scene.
