I don’t know how Kathleen Kennedy has managed to keep her job but this piece of shit has her fingerprints all over it.
Behold the trailer.
Here is a screencap of the sausage making process that will result in Star Wars The High Republic.
What have these diverse feminist voices that love Star Wars come up with?
They have come up with the kind of shit you would find at a Community College freshmen writer’s workshop.
Diversity was the third most important thing this writer’s room pasted on their Fiction category. This is what is most important to their art and it’s politics. Admittedly, Diversity is an improvement over “surprise,” I’ll give it that much.
I am not seeing the words.”protagonist,” “story arc” or the really advanced, “directed antagonism” anywhere.
I am seeing a lot of, what looks like, garbage to me.
“Relatable Characters.” It is little short of unbelievable to me that someone felt this needed to be mentioned. These people are going to be making pretty decent money, to turn in professional writing and this is what they are doing to earn it.
“Sweeping Epic” isn’t bad except that was never Star Wars. There were a few big battle scenes here and there but it was usually more about intimate stories rather than big ones. Luke’s struggle to learn the ways of force. Anakin’s pain as had to decide between the Order and the woman he loved, (okay Lucas did that one badly but it was a story).
“Feelings.” Oh dear, what about colors, smells and tastes?!?!?!
But it’s the second category that shrieks Harry Potter fangirls who landed a Star Wars writing gig. The heart emoji is the Deathstar sized hint there. I think this is the list that is to be the reminder about what Star Wars is supposed to be about because they honestly can’t remember themselves.
“So remember girls and men who identify as girls it may have Wars in the title (and no we can’t change that I asked), but this show is ‘not Pro-War.’ Now I need some words that just scream Star Wars so let me have a few!”
“Starship battles and lasersword fights!”
“Oh good one Briseida! Ravenclaw just caught the Golden Snitch.”
“That’s so unfair to us Hufflepuffs! We never win anything!
Star Wars The High Republic is clearly going to be yet another Kathleen Kennedy nightmare of Star Wars canon fuckage.
Yeah, it’s gonna suck!
