J.J. Abrams hosted the annual U.S.-Ireland Alliance’s Oscar Wilde Awards at his production company’s headquarters Thursday, and weighed in on the growing calls to see openly gay characters in the new installments of Star Wars.

“When I talk about inclusivity, it’s not excluding gay characters,” Abrams told The Daily Beast Thursday. “It’s about inclusivity. So of course [there will be gay characters].”

Asked why fans have never seen an openly LGBT character in the seven movies spanning decades and galaxies, Abrams said he would “love” to change that reality.

“To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility,” he said. “So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counter-intuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.”
