So the fan-created and Disney conscripted Star Wars holiday of May the Fourth has come and gone and I have to say this one was a lot more eventful than I was expecting given the fact there is nothing Star Wars related about to be released and the plague is in town (my governor says it is and you have to listen to her).
On the eve of the worst earnings call in the entire one hundred year history of Disney Entertainment, Lucasfilm officially announced that Lesley fucking Headland’s unwanted, undesired, and utterly lubricous feminist-centric Star Wars series has been green-lit!
Quick reminder about the drama surrounding this one.
A couple of weeks ago, there was an announcement for a new untitled Star Wars tv series made outside of official Disney public relations channels. The next day…
“Yesterday the WDWMagic forums were blowing up. For those who don’t know, WDWM is a forum dedicated to Disney World where actual cast members are known to hang out and talk about things. And what they wanted to know yesterday was “why are the Bobs so pissed off at Lucasfilm today?”
Allegedly both Bob Iger and Bob Chapek were on a tear about Lucasfilm and nobody was sure why. A number of high-level meetings were suddenly being scheduled. The answer, allegedly, was the very, very unauthorized leak of a Star Wars project being headed by Lesley Headland.
My suspicion is that this story idea was getting kicked around in happier times, back in February but was now being axed. If there is one thing the SJWs have learned, is that it’s easy to use the Woke tail, to wag the rest of a Liberal dog. Get the press on your side and a Lefty boss is bound to cave and let you have your project. And hey, if you have a hit, you are a hero and all is forgiven. If it fails you are still a hero for having pushed hard Left.
The problem is that this time, survival is on the line. Even if Disney opens back up in July, they will probably be a decade recovering from this. It’s possible that the only thing that will be open at Disney World for a while is the Magic Kingdom. Most of the employees have been furloughed and who knows how many are coming back? A lot of guaranteed moneymakers are going to have to be canceled. And this ditz at Lucasfilm decides to ramrod a pet project of hers when the company is about to fall down and go boom?
Next week might be a very interesting one at Lucasfilm.“
I never spoke true words.
This is nothing short of amazing to me. After the disaster that was Solo a Star Wars Story and the massive wedge that was driven into the fanbase by The Last Jedi and the complete COLLAPSE of the Star Wars toy market. I was convinced that Kathleen Kennedy would be fired. I mean, good lord, why would you keep this lunatic on?
And the answer appears to be that she has a vagina.
Disney is utterly incapable of any kind of control over this woman because she is a woman and they can’t discipline her, they can’t give her orders, they can’t do anything to her because if they do, the Bobs will be called, sexists. And they would rather leave Disney a smoking hole in the ground rather than endure this.
The tail at Lucasfilm will wag the dog until the day that Kathleen Kennedy arrives at her office to find out that it’s been padlocked by the county sheriff because everything in the entire Disney corporation is being auctioned off due to foreclosure.
Well at least Lucasfilm is good for meme fodder.
