Thank you for letting me to add that art to the group :)

BTW, do you think that there is a chance that there will be "the Dumbledore move" with these two? That it may revealed that they're homosexual in some future... for example around the release of Rogue One on Blu-Ray?

I have no idea. I guess it depends on how brave the filmmakers are feeling, though I'm not sure I would compare this to Dumbledore... I mean, I haven't read all the Harry Potter books, but my understanding is there's no hint in the text as to his sexuality. Baze and Chirrut's interactions might not be explicit, but they're definitely romantically coded.

Abrams did promise LGBT characters, but I assumed he meant in the main films.

True. I mentioned Dumbledore just because it's probably the most famous example of the creator(s) revealing that one of their characters was not straight in some time after the canon fate of that character was sealed.

"

Iirc, he just said that he doesn't mind including LGBT characters in the next movies in this franchise - not necessarily in the main saga. He's still not the central person behind such decisions, but he could tell it as a request of someone 'higher' than him in order to prepare the audience for it.

I feel like it falls somewhere between Dumbledore and Korrasami, haha.

Ahh, you're right. I remember reading articles before that took his words for a 100% certainty of including LGBT characters, but looking it up again, it's unclear whether there's something in the works already or if he's just very open to the idea. Here's hoping? I literally had a dream before even seeing TFA that Rey was a lesbian so I kind of want that to be prophetic lol.
I love how the entire fandom is in total agreement about these two. No arguments to the contrary, just "these guys are so married. Married for 20+ years, and Cirrut totally uses his mantra to get out of doing the dishes."

I haven't looked into what's being said officially, but their relationship is just so romantically coded towards the end of the film. Like... obviously they're a couple.
Everything about them is coded as married. Even if they say otherwise, that's how it reads on-screen. I haven't seen anything refuting it either.

I mean, I had an inkling earlier on, but you know how it is. I figured there was no way the writers intended it to be read that way and they were just trying to make them look like besties.

But the end, man. That clinched it for me.
Definitely agreed. The ending sealed the deal on them being married. You can only argue Just Friends for so long.
