Disney just gets craftier and craftier.
I mean here they went and just created several hundred years worth of racial tension and gender norms just in case the restarting of a franchise didn't pan out the way they had expected.

I got to give it to the mouse, that is some A+ damage control prep.

or maybe the alternative conclusion is that fandom communities don't police their own enough, which allows those from outside the community to love everyone within it together.

and that this sort of thing should be a call to Arms were people from within the community who don't share racist and sexist beliefs to be outspoken within the community regarding those issues.

But nah, it's probably the first one.

Doubling down on the narrative only hurt Disney Star Wars reputation, I wonder if they'll Triple Down on it. It'll be interesting to see where they take Episode IX. There's too much money riding on for Disney to let an agenda bury their big purchase. We won't have to wait long to see since it'll come out next year so we'll start seeing stuff in just a few months. A part of me doesn't care since they're just milking it too much but another part still wants Star Wars to be rescued.

Obviously the sequel trilogy is too damaged at this point for it to turn things around, the most they can hope for is not to piss too many people off. But it could set the direction of where they take SWs.

I mean, it's great casting...

Didn't help Episode VIII any, though. They had Mark F'ing Hamill.

I wonder what type of role will Matt Smith be playing. a First Order Officer or a member of the Resistance?

Dunno, but I'll bet my entire 11th Doctor run of DVDs that he'll be wasted.

He can't possibly be underutilized as much as he was in Terminator: Genisys.

This is true. I'd forgotten about that... know what's even better? That was my favorite part of Genisys.
