Super-Woke Lesbian Feminist Ideologue and Former Personal Assistant to Harvey Weinstein Hand-Picked by Feminist Failure Kathleen Kennedy to Produce New "Female-Centric" Star Wars Series

Four of the five Disney Star Wars films had a female lead.

But that's not enough for relentless feminist ideologue and catastrophic failure Kathleen Kennedy.


A new rumor details that Disney and Lucasfilm are working on a new "female-centric" Star Wars series.

The rumor comes from Variety and details the series is being helmed by the co-creator of Netflix's Russian Doll series, Lesly Headland. Headland is expected to write and serve as showrunner for the series.

She has barely any credits. She has zero sci-fi credits, except, arguably, for this Russian Doll series, though that just seems like a Chick Comedy. It does have the premise that she dies every day and starts the day over at the same place, but 1, that's simple fantasy not sci-fi, and 2, of course that's ripped off of Groundhog Day.

So the #WokePatrol is once again hiring based on plumbing, not merit.

By the way, I'm pointing out she's a lesbian not to knock lesbians, but to note that her idea of "diversity" is absolute homogenity: She wants to surround herself with nothing else but woke white feminist women, preferably overweight, who are either lesbian or "questioning."

Leslye likes attacking "white women" for not being strong enough "allies" for marginalized groups.

...

Headland recently discussed the film industry where she described white executives as the "silent killer." She stated, "I'm also seeing the silent killer, which is a lot of white women at the top who are kind of reinforcing old ideas."

She added, "As I started to rise in television, I started to just get more blunt. And just start saying like, 'I would like a black writer' because if I said diverse, you know, you get well 'White is diverse,' which is something somebody said to me. I was like 'It's not, but cool.'"

Except here's the thing: White feminists do think that "white" is diverse.

Comics Matter looked at the personnel of a book industry charity a couple of weeks ago, and chuckled to see they were all -- all! -- white women who actually looked like they were near clones of each other.

He noted the old saying, that "A-level people hire other A-level people, but B-level people hire C-level people. But white women just hire other white women."

Which is true. And I don't mean conservative white women, I mean liberal feminist white women. They consider themselves a "minority" -- despite women being more numerous than men, and having more college degrees than men, etc. -- and therefore are absolutely without shame in hiring one white woman feminist/likely lesbian after another.

You can walk into any publishing house and see nothing but white feminist woman quasi-clones, 90% of whom went to the same twenty colleges, and yet they're all absolutely convinced they're being oppressed and the system is stacked against them.

And then they just go out and hire more white women and mutter darkly about evil men who only hire men. Which we don't -- there are laws against it.

But if you're a white feminist woman -- sky's the limit on how non-diverse you can make your office. Every time you hire another white woman, your diversity quotient somehow goes up.

I'm not bothered by this new "female-centric" series, for two reasons:

1, Kathleen Kennedy is a known failure who is only being allowed to pretend to be head of Lucasfilm for political reasons. Disney is the most PC #Woke company on earth, and doesn't want to be seen as firing women, even for gross, repeated incompetence.

I get the sense that she will cry #MeToo if they fire her.

I do not believe this series will ever happen. This is some bullshit that Kathleen Kennedy and her Woke Squad of white women feminists have put together, and Disney said "sure" because it doesn't cost too much money to pay a minor writer to jot down some ideas.

2, I also don't care if Disney does make this series. As some commenters said in the previous thread, no one cares about Star Wars any more. It's a dead brand. Dead. There is no more anger about ruining it; it's already ruined.

And also: I want Disney to die -- DIE DIE DIE -- so I'm all in favor of them producing more unwatchable woke garbage.

By the way, Disney Star Wars made a big announcement a few weeks back about their big new project, "The High Republic," in which "diversity" would be a core value. So core that they listed it twice on their whiteboard.

And how diverse would The High Republic be? So diverse that the exalted Jedi hero would be, get this, a fifty something schoolmarm white woman who is likely a lesbian and certainly owns more than eight cats. (Space cats, whatever.)

Space Wizard Karen would like to see your manager.


Star Wars recently introduced a number of the characters appearing in their upcoming publishing initiative Star Wars: The High Republic. The first character introduced is Avar Kriss.


On StarWars.com, Kriss is described as the brightest, most noble example of Jedi-hood." They also describe her as "the best of the best."

She wields a green lightsaber, has medium-length blonde hair, and wears a white garb with a yellow cloak. She has brown gloves and boots. Atop her white outfit, she sports a yellowish brown tabard. It's all tied together with a brown belt.

She uses her Jedi Mind Trick powers to get the cashier at Bed, Bath, and Beyond to accept expired coupons.

All they do is push this weird gender politics agenda, and then they wonder why no one cares about this dead brand anymore.

Here's this "Leslye" woman running her fat, Brie Larson like mouth about how diverse she wants to make everything, as she sits on a couch with two other near-clone white women.

They couldn't make the original Lion King because Matthew Broderick starred as Simba. A white guy in a story centered in Africa will not be tolerated as the lead even if it's just about animals.

This is how stupid identity politics in art is.

36 For what it's worth, Russian Doll is awesome. It's actually a really original take on the "Groundhog Day" premise.

But as Rian Johnson showed, just because you can make something super original and good (i.e. Brick, Knives Out, etc) doesn't make you ANY good at all at making something within the confines of a franchise framework.

You have to come at it from the position of being a Fan that hates it just a little bit. If you don't hate it at all you get JJ "Rehash That Nostalgia" Abrams, and if you hate it too much you get Rian "What Even Is A Sequel Anyway" Johnson.

I think they're interesting because it's Lucas trying to be a serious filmmaker.

He fails rather miserably across the first two (I unabashedly love the third), but there's a really interesting idea running through the stilted dialogue, performances, and fake CGI. That of a republic falling into tyranny matched up against a young innocent man falling into evil.

He just didn't figure out how to do that across three movies. His "plan" was essentially just Episode III, which is why it works better than the other two.

80 Seriously, what do they (corporate SJWs) want to happen with this feminization of sci-fi films and comics?

I am actually mystified.

Options -- which is closest to the truth? :

-- They want all the fanboys to be brainwashed into becoming feminists.

-- They simply want to annoy all the fanboys and must them be filled with shame (at their own WrongThink). Maybe the fanboys won't ever be converted, but at least they'll feel bad.

-- They want girls to watch science fiction, instead of boys.

-- They want to destroy science fiction as an entire genre, because it is contaminated with masculinity cooties and thus needs elimination.

-- They want to lord their power over all men by forcing them to witness they favorite genre and franchises be tortured and mutilated in front of their eyes, just for the sadistic thrill of it.

--...something else I haven't thought of.

81 ace this reminds me of the too-awful-to-believe Mindy Kailing movie about being the first woman of color on a tv talk show host's writing staff. Not only are her male staffers toxic white men, but the host, played by Emma Thompson, sounds Kathleen Kennedy-like in her white woman as victim mindset.

First, movies about that are really bad - I don't think I'll watch anything she writes ever again (she's like Lena Dunham, but with the immigrant chip on her shoulder too!).

Second, white Lefty women are on their way out - the AOC/Ilhan Omar/Saira Rao types are quickly ejecting them from the clob (see: SheThePeople.org).

Intersectionality is a bigger b#tch than the Karens.

I think they're interesting because it's Lucas trying to be a serious filmmaker.

He fails rather miserably across the first two (I unabashedly love the third), but there's a really interesting idea running through the stilted dialogue, performances, and fake CGI. That of a republic falling into tyranny matched up against a young innocent man falling into evil.

He just didn't figure out how to do that across three movies. His "plan" was essentially just Episode III, which is why it works better than the other two.

I am actually mystified.

Options -- which is closest to the truth? :

-- They want all the fanboys to be brainwashed into becoming feminists.

-- They simply want to annoy all the fanboys and must them be filled with shame (at their own WrongThink). Maybe the fanboys won't ever be converted, but at least they'll feel bad.

-- They want girls to watch science fiction, instead of boys.

-- They want to destroy science fiction as an entire genre, because it is contaminated with masculinity cooties and thus needs elimination.

-- They want to lord their power over all men by forcing them to witness they favorite genre and franchises be tortured and mutilated in front of their eyes, just for the sadistic thrill of it.

--...something else I haven't thought of.

Also they think this rumored series is all being done by the woman that wants the series. Because a whole lot of Disney's PR department has been laid off. Because why do you need a massive PR department there? No movies are coming. The parks aren't open. No shows are being made.

So she's putting it out there so when it doesn't happen they can scream "Oppression!"

Now that series is dead to me, too.

I'm looking backwards now, to the old sci fi I used to read. Gordon Dickson, Poul Anderson, Keith Laumer.

I've tried indie published sci-fi but not finding the level of craft that satisfies me.

When I told her that asthma and smoking have been removed from the most at-risk group and challenged her to have just a bit of skepticism and do some research on her own, she said she had no intention of going on a "militia website." Apparently the Guardian is a militia website now.

This mostly. It's just another avenue in the march through the institutions. Heroic fiction has a long storied part of Western mythology. Sci-fi (or sci-fi fantasy) is just one part of it.

The neo-marxists are knocking down as many things as they can. It isn't necessarily a conscious, stated objective for most of them. They are part of a rabid herd trampling over everything, grasping power, and murdering culture.

They hate the West and are willing to burn it down one story at a time no matter the cost if it means they're on top and you're at their boot heel.

Now, the industry mostly concentrates on superhero franchises (Star Wars very much included) and believes that simply grafting SJW women onto those pictures will solve the problem.

308 And also: I want Disney to die -- DIE DIE DIE -- so I'm all in favor of them producing more unwatchable woke garbage.

I don't to and only to the extent that I think there's some Disney stock in one of my investment funds.

But other than that, yuuuup.

Several years ago I read an article by a woman who got hired at her dream job at one of the major publishing houses. She was from one of the flyover states and worked her butt off to get a scholarship to an Ivy and set her eyes on publishing because omg I'm an editor! Living in Manhattan! Omg look how I've rejected everything about my past and my family!

The article was quite amusing, actually, because it dealt with her discovering that a. NYC is wildly expensive, II. that her job paid nothing and thus she had to have roommates in a tiny little apartment in an outer borough (this is pre Brooklyn is so hip), and, best of all, trois. that there was ABSOLUTELY a dress code.

Everyone wore the same pencil skirt and sweater set combo, the only difference was it Ann Taylor or real Ralph Lauren. And showing up in anything else would get her side eyed to hell and back.

The freedom she assumed she would have did not exist. Everything was lock step group think and don't you dare nudge a toe out of line.

IIRC, the article ended with her moving back home after a few years to help care for a sick family member and she got a job writing for corporate PR for a meat company and discovered that it paid better than publishing, she could buy a nice size house all by herself, and since she was now the kooky creative on the corporate team, no one cared if she showed up with a purple stripe in her hair and in bright colors and crazy skirts so long as she wasn't flashing t ampersand a all over the place.

Funny how that works.

They're not attacking, they are converting. Look what they have accomplished with men in just a few short years.

If their adoration and promotion of Islam didn't make it perfectly obvious, The Left are coming for white heterosexual women. It starts with making them hated by everybody - perhaps by using them destroy everybody's favorite things...?

And the bountifully successful "Karen" meme from all political sides is carrying the football well down the field. The Right thinks nosy busybody lefties are Karen. The Left thinks white women disagree with them or think independently are Karen.

Which means all white women - or at least any who express an opinion or come up for air - are Karen now. This is just the beginning of the descent.

Which will be celebrated on our side no doubt, because they have made *everybody* sick of "women". We will say they brought it on themselves. And the resulting society will not be to anyone's liking except the commie Left who will move on to destroying the next group, until they are all there is to look up to.

it is funny when they say that but you can't change the fact that saw them as kids, it makes a difference. There is a reason episode 4, Jaws, and even E.T. to a lesser extent mean something to me. There is a reason Raiders will always mean something to me. You can't recreate youth and the impact movies had back then.

As much as you're bagging on the droid killing in episode 1, fight scenes were largely much more drab in the original trilogy. In that they practically didn't exist as a real fight so much as cutting back and forth. Episode 1 had some pretty flashy fight scenes especially the duels that ended each of the movies(prequel trilogy altogether).

Funny you say that, especially about E.T.

When we lived in Los Angeles, my son's elementary school had an outdoor showing of E.T. for its end of year event. They even arranged for one of the actors from E.T. (one of Elliott's bicycle buddies) to come and say a few words about his experience on the set. I was quite stoked to see it after almost 40 years.

Anyway, I show up, and when the movie is on I'm...embarrassed and shocked.

The language and dysfunctional family situations were nothing like I remembered it. My first thought was to get my kid out of the screening, because it was completely inappropriate for an elementary school class to see that movie.

412 THat's the problem: Phantom Menace doesn't work as an Anakin story. It barely features him. Casting him as a child was stupid, story-wise.

Yep. No one wants to watch a story about how some kid, later teen, has mommy issues and it totally turns him to the dark side. Its weak and dull. Of all the ways Darth Vader could have become Darth Vader . . .

Edge of Tomorrow works because Cruise plays with his own persona in it and because there's an actual character arc. Plus 'splosions.

The Happy Death Day movies are just FUN. They are popcorn munching fun and take themselves just seriously enough that everyone is giving their all. These are silly little B movies and everyone involved knows it and sets out to put on a good show. There's nothing at all wrong with that.

The 2016 DNC provided a small clue as to where "they" want to take us. Although they did pop the lights and balloons (whoa!!!) with large splashes of color (mostly blue) occasionally, it was generally silver, grey, cold and weird. Stripped of everything we previously knew.

435 "Lucas just sucks at writing. And directing"

When Frank Herbert found a director to film Dune, the director was concerned to find around 147 similarities that Star Wars had ripped off from the 1965 novel.

I know, archetypes have similar themes, but there were way too many coincidences. I think Lucas's lack of creativity was spotlighted in the sequels. Empire Strikes Back was his only redeeming work.

Star Wars is a rip off of Dune. Herbert details it in the intro to one of his reprints.

Isn't it funny how she says we can't tell one week to another if it's okay to end the stay-at-home order, but apparently she can see 3 weeks out when the order needs to be extended.

She pulled this same shit on April 7th a week before the original order was going to expire on April 14th. Said back then she could see 77 days into the future and needed a 70-day extension. But then amazingly decided to compromise with a 23-day extension, despite data telling her she needed 70 days. Imagine that.

Now, a week ago, when she's badmouthing the April 15th protest, she claims she can't know 2 weeks out whether or not she can lift the stay-at-home order. But now --- once again, a week before the order is to expire --- her crystal ball magically can predict 3 weeks into the future in favor of an extension.

....
Sadly, no.

It's feminist mini-sermons sprinkled into the dialog, intentionally unflattering styling/wardrobe (see: Birds of Prey - what happened to Harley Quinn's a$$?) and men all being depicted as jerks and/or idiots (see: Chris Hemsworth in the lady Ghostbusters movie).
Posted by: Lizzy at April 24, 2020 01:59 PM (bDqIh)

Well, it's that sadly part.

I don't know if the guys are right and these women are all lesbians or if they've just been brainwashed in the very best schools, but what sort of woman wants to be surrounded by stupid men while she polishes the chip on her shoulder?

It's a belief system, self-hypnosis, oppression LARPing baloney.

Henry. Cavill. In. A. Bathtub.

Or, heck, even some dang good looking women because beauty is beautiful and also universal.

Or take the Mandalorian (which I will watch but haven't yet). Babies. Even weird green toad babies. And the scary, dangerous man being nurturing and protective. Women went nuts.

So they'll make a show that's "woman centric" (likely as an alternative to the massively popular Mandalorian) and then blame misogyny rather than their own idiocy for why it fails. Because no one wants to watch it.

I swore off Netflix when they repeatedly charged my closed account in Brazilian Reals. I never got an explanation. No way anyone had my p.w. or my CC. Maybe someone used keylogger but how wold they know the account was closed? They reopened a closed account and charged it for a few months. I just happened to check back in for some reason and discovered it.

If I call them the people barely understand what I am saying and claim there is no history of my account. Sure, then why do I still have my p.w. written down? I used the account for years. You can't get anyone competent on the phone. It is funny it is a huge blow out stock and a large cap. At one point a guy admitted this happened to other people. I hear they have some good shows but it is hard to come back from that.

513 I have wondered if the paucity of original scripts in Hollywood, the endless remakes and recycling the same old stories over and over again is due to the fact that so many millennials don't read. The great scriptwriters of the '30's and '40's included talented writers who were very literate. They came up with original ideas or adapted novels. Of course, sometimes their scripts were butchered by the studio heads who wanted happy endings, but just compare the dialog of Casablanca with what passes for dialog in a movie today.

It's like they keep reusing the same scripts and the same stories because they're not literate or creative enough to dream up new ones.

I've known a few millenials who want to be writers or screenwriters - and when I asked them what their favorite novels were, both said Harry Potter. And that was it.

For Chrissake, there's a whole world of books out there and the only damn thing they can think of is Harry Potter. And they want to be writers!

Heh, I just wandered into a list of top home invasion movies that has a big warning A BUNCH OF THESE ARE FRENCH AND THE FRENCH ARE BAT SHIT INSANE WITH THEIR HORROR.

And that right there is an understatement. People think that Eli Roth makes torture porn movies. The French consider what he makes a children's cartoon.

Now, some French horror is absolutely fantastic. But it's very very very brutal.

The flip side is if you want a slow burn, sit there watching as people make horrible choices that you know are going to end terribly, there's A Dark Song.

It's slow. It's meant to be slow. It's more ominous than terrifying, at least until the end. But it's about watching someone choosing with each step to lose herself to darkness and you understand why she's doing it and that makes it all the worse.

On the super other side, if you want completely insane, there's Mandy, in which Nic Cage is the sanest part of it.

559 In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.

C.S.Lewis, The Abolition of Man
...

Perhaps I'm very weird but this made me think of this thread this morning and the way that feminism and "woman-centric" removes all virtues and still expects the benefits. I don't know if it needs revising to specify female things because I can feel the application to both sexes.

They demand "strong women" but denigrate strength and elevate victim hood. Virtue and enterprise, plain unvarnished hard work, is oppression and yet without demanding either they assert virtue without work. And castrate! They demand that we rip babies from our wombs and yet women are supposedly so much more nurturing, empathetic, and wise. They expect us to keep our nature when nature has been denied or even excised.

And then someone will step up, demand we stop shaming sluts, and assert the Earth Goddess in a sterile ideology.

565 That picture of Avar Kriss sure looks a lot like Prince Valiant to me.

Who's that, you say? Cripes, I'm old.

567 Lifelong Star Wars fan - my wife is embarassed by the number of things I've collected.

Absolutely no interest this new SJW crap. The prequel trilogy was bad enough - I just hope it can crater in the rating/money so badly that Disney has no choice but to fire Kathleen Kennedy- though that is not what these SJWs usually do.

Deer Disney,

I have a great idea for a Star Wars movie. It'll be about these white lesbians or at least questioning who are clones of each other. The Evil Patriarchy, the Jedi, will force them to fight people who wish to rule over themselves and are attempting to exit the Jedi Empire. We can call it...

The Clone Wars

Yes? yes!

571 Oh Yeah, I just cannot wait to 'not' watch that...

572 That picture? I'm not being sarcastic when I say that I really, really thought it was a young man. You know, one who was in the early stages of puberty, but hadn't filled out yet.

573 I don't watch Star wars nor read comics or see movies about characters in comics.Neither do my Two Grandsons or my step granddaughters.I think basically no one watches these things unless they are bored or misinformed about what their children really like.
