What a Surprise! New Disney Reboot of an Old LucasFilm IP, Willow, Features a Teen Lesbian Relationship "Front and Center:" "It was just organic," Claims Screenwriter

So organic! It was also completely organic when Disney made gay teen relationships central to all of their other children's shows in the past two years!

It just happened! The Muse just spoke to the writers and producers, and just kept saying: 70% of the world's teenagers are gay, or at least should be!

Disney's Willow puts a queer romance front and center -- and it was 'just organic,' says creator

A princess and a lady knight never got together in George Lucas' original, but for Jonathan Kasdan, it was an obvious next step

By Susana Polo@NerdGerhl Nov 29, 2022, 12:15pm EST 6 Comments / 6 New


...

This time, Willow is accompanied by a whole ensemble squad of mostly teenagers, each pulling and pushing against fantasy tropes that will be excitingly familiar to an audience in an era where D&D is mainstream and YA fiction is full of plucky heroes and heroines....

Willow's two mains are Kit and Dove, both young women who wrestle with the legacy of Elora Danan. But Kit's own bildungsroman may come to overshadow Dove's in conversations about the show, as a good part of her journey is realizing that she's in mutual love with her best friend. In a long overdue and welcome development for fantasy cinema, television, and the Disney corporation itself, Kit (a self-centered tomboy princess who spends most of the series dressed like the Dread Pirate Roberts) and Jade (an orphan girl who wants to become her country's first female knight) are as though someone took every tomboy fantasy heroine in the YA literature canon, tossed them in a blender, and flipped a big mad scientist lever from SUBTEXT to TEXT.

Polygon sat down with Kasdan to talk first and foremost about being the first true franchise on Disney Plus to really center a queer story -- and also about weird movies from the 1980s, the road from there to modern YA fantasy, and the flip side of the fantasy hero coin: truly terrible villains.


Polygon: How did a queer relationship come to be the core of this show? When did it enter the process and was there any pushback?

Jonathan Kasdan: There was no pushback. What's interesting is -- I hope and I believe we're at a moment where you're going to see a paradigm shift in that. And hopefully, the way that it's gonna happen is that these kinds of [queer] stories, particularly like this one, that were just organic to the narrative we were telling, find their way in, and it becomes less of a surprising and unusual thing to see.

It's very unsurprising. It's in literally every Disney project aimed at children. It's in Willow, it's in Strange World, it was in Lightyear, it was in Beauty and the Beast, it was in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, it was in Thor: Love and Thunder, it was Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker.

Oh, and Solo, co-written by Jonathan Kasdan and his father, featured a pansexual Lando Calrissian who has sex with an SJW robot. (Strongly implied in the script, and stated outside the film in interviews.)

"Organic!" It just happens! The ink just sashays out of the pen, gaily!


There would be "pushback" from Disney if there was not gay messaging in a project aimed at children.

3 I like the original Willow, but it's not exactly some classic.

I'm sure that this Disney will be able to update it and improve it to make the newest iteration into a stone-cold classic and not forgettable trash designed to fill out a content slot with recognizable IP that's actually not that recognizable.

8 Its sad but predictable.

Willow was a pretty okay movie, it was meh except for Val Kilmer, who makes every movie he's in better. Even that godawful Batman movie would have been worse without him.

I was hoping they took that kind of interesting world and went interesting places in it. They even had a front-loaded chosen special one grrl power lead (Willow, the girl) and a set up conflict for her to defeat.

But, who trusts Disney to do anything right these days? Nobody.

I believe this. Why would there be pushback, and why wouldn't it be organic and came from the writers naturally? The only kind of people in Hollywood are the kind of people that would do this.

"I don't understand how he won! After all, I don't a know single person who voted for him!" is probably true, and this is probably true, too.

35 Disney is just in the process of ruining every brand it has.

Iger's not going to undo that.

When they bought Fox they went to their creatives and said, "Look in the Fox vault and choose the IP that you want to remake." All the creatives are woke and poor writers, so they take something like Home Alone and turn it into nonsense. They take Alien and they turn it into a screed about income inequality (the show is coming to HULU at some point).

They didn't have to tell Cameron to make Avatar 2 as leftist unbearable as possible, though. He was already planning on doing that.

Yeah, the faeries could have been comfortably deleted and very little of the story needed changing. Would have been better overall. Sadly, they are in the TV show too, apparently.

Its a pretty grown up story, with some kid friendly elements, outside of the faeries. They were just obnoxious obviously jammed into the story to appeal to children.

I don't buy into the idea that the characters write themselves or somehow outside influences are moving your story, but it sometimes kind of feels that way.

I'll write a chapter then look at it and go "where the hell did that come from?"

Just review the movies, give it an overall objective score and review, and then also give the reader a breakdown of how much sodomy, lesbo slit licking and faggot clownery is involved so they can decide if they want to go see it or not.

88 Disney cannot make a movie like Willow because the females aren't fully-realized champions oppressed by the patriarchy, the female lead wasn't always a goddess who just needed to believe how awesomely amazing she always was herself. A man leads the way, and a little man saves the day, defeating a woman. This Cannot Be Allowed.

Iger is not a creative type but someone who grew Disney via acquisitions but larding it up with debt. He trusted the creative types to come up with salable merchandise and the amusement parks were a stable income gainer that allowed the creative types to take risks.

The problem is that his creative types were batshit crazy, Covid put holes in the amusement park and cruise ship industry, and interest rate increases hit debt laden companies like Disney hard. And now his creative types that he hired and nurtured are killing off the amusement parks by woke shit, interest rates are still likely to climb, and people are now viewing Disney as Groomer Central.

The only way for Disney forward is to break up the company now into salable pieces or in bankruptcy later.

No, he put Chapek in because he didn't want to hurt his political chances by what covid and the lockdowns were going to do the Disney corporation.

We lived near Disneyland at the time and also had many great times there.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor
---------------------------
The genius behind the first SW movies was the first wife of Lucas and experienced writer Leigh Brackett was responsible for the second movie. The third movie was a step down (no insult intended Chief Ewok) and then Lucas believed himself to be a genius and promptly acted to destroy the franchise but make money off the licensing. Lucas, btw, sold just before an increase in the capital gains tax was to come into effect.

All in all, his best work was when others fixed what his deficiencies and Disney has Kathleen Kennedy to destroy and bury the remains of the franchise.

207 Question as someone who writes. I do have stories with LGBT characters, but they are secondary characters, and their sexuality is second to the plot, the themes (which are pretty libertarian and conservative), and other parts of their personality and goals. And the stories are for YA or adult, not kids.

Is there an audience for that? Or the second a conservative person reads my story and the sexuality is bright up, will they go "oh this is woke trash" and toss it?

Liberals will probably hate the themes so I'm not sure if I can find a traditional publisher. But I don't know if conservatives will be turned off too. Woke stories are ruining it for other types of stories, in so many ways.

It depends. If you take into account marketing, opportunity costs, and other costs, they probably broke even after the film trilogy. Disney+ is taking a bath because the geniuses don't realize that a new series does not necessarily mean new subscribers.

Andor would probably have worked had everything else been at least decent. Broadening the SW universe would be good. However, since Disney failed at the core stuff, no one cares about expanding the horizon.

227 Iger is not a creative type but someone who grew Disney via acquisitions but larding it up with debt. He trusted the creative types to come up with salable merchandise and the amusement parks were a stable income gainer that allowed the creative types to take risks.
The problem is that his creative types were batshit crazy, Covid put holes in the amusement park and cruise ship industry, and interest rate increases hit debt laden companies like Disney hard. And now his creative types that he hired and nurtured are killing off the amusement parks by woke shit, interest rates are still likely to climb, and people are now viewing Disney as Groomer Central.
The only way for Disney forward is to break up the company now into salable pieces or in bankruptcy later.

It's the first question I ask anyone who starts recommending a movie to me, "Does it have a bunch of faggots in it? 'Cause I'm not into faggots".

It serves a couple of purposes, it properly denormalizes faggotry and it makes the person that is talking to me uneasy, because people generally cringe at saying the word faggot out loud.

233 207 Question as someone who writes. I do have stories with LGBT characters, but they are secondary characters, and their sexuality is second to the plot, the themes (which are pretty libertarian and conservative), and other parts of their personality and goals. And the stories are for YA or adult, not kids.

Is there an audience for that? Or the second a conservative person reads my story and the sexuality is bright up, will they go "oh this is woke trash" and toss it?

Liberals will probably hate the themes so I'm not sure if I can find a traditional publisher. But I don't know if conservatives will be turned off too. Woke stories are ruining it for other types of stories, in so many ways.
Posted by: LizLem at November 30, 2022 04:34 PM (+mkOR)

My $.02
Write the story you want to write with the characters you want. Anything else is going to drive you nuts.

That said, religious types will mostly stop reading once the gay comes out, IME. If sex or romance is n't part of the plot, why mention the sexuality of a character?

But if the story's good and characters are vivid, it will find readers.

The world isn't that restrictive, as they have about three paragraphs to work with in the Appendices. Too bad they contradicted all of them and the ones they wrote themselves over and over.

Some one on YT was piecing together just how he would have written it - all five seasons - covering the 2500 years or so and it sounded pretty promising. He was talking about blocking it out better and making some new videos on it that I haven't seen. And this is just a random guy.

This assumes you have something called writers, which has not been in evidence much of late.

A well-developed property at least has a core of fans that one can theoretically build on as an audience. Willow? Not really. I like the movie quite a lot. But it's not a property that has a fan base per se, especially what 40-some-odd years later. (Sadly, the 80s was a long time ago.) If Willow's virtue is that it's so generic that one can do anything with it, why bother with Willow at all? Why not just write your new story?

This is solely my opinion. Right now, I would probably toss it aside. It has nothing to do with your writing skills or story quality. There's just too much of it right now. Hinting that someone is that way would probably work. Having it out in the open, no. Plus, if the story is not contemporary, then especially no. It is about sheltering the YA group. They get that crap from everywhere else. Having a refuge from it in books is important, I believe.

324 Question as someone who writes. I do have stories with LGBT characters, but they are secondary characters, and their sexuality is second to the plot, the themes (which are pretty libertarian and conservative), and other parts of their personality and goals. And the stories are for YA or adult, not kids.

Is there an audience for that? Or the second a conservative person reads my story and the sexuality is bright up, will they go "oh this is woke trash" and toss it?

Liberals will probably hate the themes so I'm not sure if I can find a traditional publisher. But I don't know if conservatives will be turned off too. Woke stories are ruining it for other types of stories, in so many ways.

Of course, Walsh and Rufo were too lazy to watch their own clip and missed the part where Iger says he doesn't consider the grooming/LGBT advocacy to be "political" but simply "being a decent human" and promised that it would continue.

DeSantis didn't accomplish anything. Disney is even more stridently defiant than ever about grooming children and business is booming at record levels at WDW.

340 Wyatt Earp was 17 years dead when My Darling Clementine came out

Well, and Wyatt was not above, shall we say, creative storytelling and self aggrandizement.

But what he told Ford earlier on was true: what had been written was largely fantasy along the lines of Buntline stories where you told the story you wanted using existing characters and vaguely similar events. The thing is, My Darling Clementine wasn't really like the real thing, either, and Wyatt would have told him so (but cashed the check gladly).

Tombstone has its flaws but it is pretty damned close to actual events, even the part where Wyatt runs at an ambush and breaks it up in a suicidal rush. Even his enemies (well, the ones that survived) admitted that had happened. Earp was never shot, not even once in his entire life. Crazy life.

We have a fantastic TikTok marketing campaign, but this sales executive who looks like a 15 year old Taylor Lorenze decided it wasn't ghey enough and we need to have more content targeting LGBT and BIPOC to show how accessible and open the company is because reasons and wokeness and something.

My question to her: if you create advertising content that target a small portion of the audience to which only that audience can relate to but the rest find irrelevant, how would this result in more actual sales of our products?

God love Matt Walsh for his work exposing the trannies but he's also a fucking moron.

And God also help me I might actually wind up working for him too since the Daily Wire is hiring for jobs I'm currently working in.

I have conditions though: one I get to punch Ben Shapiro in the face on a daily basis. Two it's a 6 digit salary. 3, Brett Cooper serves me sammiches in a string bikini. I dont ask for much.

369 352 Sony thought about getting into streaming and I think decided that selling to Netflix made more sense. Honestly, that makes more sense for most everyone. Having two or three streaming providers would work. Having 15 to 20 doesn't. I figure it is going to end up like cable, tons of ads and costly still.

374 My Darling Clementine had Wyatt Earp on set as an advisor.

Wyatt Earp was 17 years dead when My Darling Clementine came out


Both of these things are true. Ford had wanted to do this movie for a long time and had Wyatt work with him on the idea. But by the time he was actually able to make the film it was many years later.

Part of the reason that Doc Holliday is so wrong in the movie is that out of a desire to make My Darling Clementine, he put a Doc Holliday type in Stagecoach (I mean, literally, it was a southern dentist with a drinking problem and a bad cough who was an incurable romantic). Having done so, Ford felt it would have been repetitive to use the same character again, even so many years later so, we get Victor Mature as Doc Holliday.

One more lesson for fictional writing - show, don't tell. There's NO way you're gonna "show" LGBT stuff in a book that conservatives will want to read, so there's no point for it to be there for that audience. If you think your book can appeal to a liberal or moderate audience, then you can go for "show" and keep it in there...

But really, most YA is just sick of all the LGBTQXYZ123 anyway...make the characters robots or cats and they'll probably prefer it b/c at least they can move past the "identity and sex" garbage...

If you are trying to sell it to anyone in publishing these days, can't be conservative. You'll get points for going woke. But is that how you want to be known. If you are good, and you gotta write a bunch of novels before you get good (not sell them necessarily but write them) you'll find a place. Its a matter of sticking with it. Its a terrible grind. You have to find your voice, and figure out how to make what is in your head, flow down your arm and onto the page. decide whether to be an engineer vs a gardener etc etc

Where streaming works really well is in the purchase side of things, especially when it comes to newer, adult fare. Older people don't want to go to theaters, but they're perfectly willing to plop down $20 to watch it in their home. This is part of what's happening to the Oscar-bait moie.

426 Great writer wrote a book on writing. One of the things he used to practice was he read a short story. Then locked it in his desk at work over the weekend. Went home that weekend and tried to re-write it as he remembered it. That process helped him understand the mechanics of story telling. He also said it was interesting to see what he recalled vs what was really in the story. It was how he began to understand "discovery" writing, as someone who was by nature and occupation an engineer.

I've read those stories years ago and even then it struck me as bad melodrama of a tragic hero destined to do evil things. Dystopian Dark Shadows type stuff.

Two Towers was one of the worst adaptations of anything I have ever seen, even if incredibly beautiful. They got almost every character so wrong it was nearly comical. They violated the storyline. They raped Tolkien's message and themes.

440 I know the readers and commenters here cover the spectrum from atheist to evangelical christian and devout Catholic. But I think the following video has something for everyone to think about, at least. A pastor explains the spiritual source of the profligacy and sexual error that our current "culture" now promotes and participates in.

It is instructive when he cites the percentages of ministers who regularly view pornography.

What does this have to do with the sexualization of children's entertainment? Spiritually, it's all of a piece.

Two Towers was one of the worst adaptations of anything I have ever seen, even if incredibly beautiful. They got almost every character so wrong it was nearly comical. They violated the storyline. They raped Tolkien's message and themes.

450 But I did like 'Tangled'. When the King and Queen finally reunited with their daughter Rapunzel that was stolen out of her crib, and that they sent lanterns up every year on her birthday as a sign of hope that one day she would return?

Tangled was great, I think its the last really good thing Disney ever did. Its also the last one with a princess who finds her love, as well I believe. And Rapunzel is much prettier than her name suggests.

451 Where streaming works really well is in the purchase side of things, especially when it comes to newer, adult fare. Older people don't want to go to theaters, but they're perfectly willing to plop down $20 to watch it in their home. This is part of what's happening to the Oscar-bait moie.

It happens through places like Amazon and VUDU. They're working well enough to function as solid replacements for DVD sales. It's not enough to make up $100 million in a short fall, but selling a $5 million movie through there? It has the potential to cover a fair amount of costs, especially in an era when Oscar-bound fare like Tar isn't going to get $10 million in theaters.

It was like they deliberately went out of their way to get everything as wrong as they possibly could. Return of the King was less rapey, but still problematic, and the hour-long ending that couldn't possibly fit in the Scouring of the Shire was just the cherry on top of the sad failure.

470 Two Towers is a mess of an adaptation. But that's because the splitting of the story into three books initially was arbitrary. Two Towers has no climax, so they tried to manufacture one out of a few paragraphs of the novel, and relegated a good 1/3 of the book to the third film, which was already overflowing with story points.

Finally, someone who agrees with me on LOTR movies. I probably watched the extended edition of Fellowship 20 times, Two Towers a couple times and the Return of the King once. So many changes that were unnecessary and indicated he, and his wife screenwriter, didn't really get Tolkein.

Still, I can see why people liked the films, they were well done, with the occasional plot hole that could have been avoided if he stuck closer to source material, but no worse than the usual contemporary action film. And if you didn't know anything about what was in the book.

Last weekend at breakfast, wifey saw someone who reminded her of the lead male actor in the excellent TV series The Killing, Joel Kinnaman.

We wondered what happened to him, so I searched and saw that he's starring in a fairly popular (8.0 ImDB rating) Apple+ streaming series called For All Mankind -- which sounded like a great concept: deleting Russian space scientist survives (instead of dying in IRL during a surgery in 1965) -- and the Russians land men on the moon before we do.

Then the description starts discussing various identity politics, and I say "I'll bet it's full woke" and proceed to read all the one-star comments. Yep, don't waste our time (no money involved as we pirate everything now except conservative fare that needs financial rewards).

I mean...it's great spectacle, but it's also Cameron kind of revealing that he's not that great with story. Gale Ann Hurd probably had as much to do with Cameron's success as Cameron himself.

Lois Bujold wrote a good book "Ethan of Athos" where a planet of male woman hating fanatics founded a planet without women in a remote part. Some 250 years later the ovaries they use to produce kids are wearing out and they order a new set but get back junk and a young doctor has to go out and face those demonic women and save his planet.

At one point he's thrown in with a female merc agent and she asks him why the population on his planet grows so slowly and he says its because the government can't afford the huge social cost of paying the salary of child care providers. He's shocked when he finds that the rest of the galaxy considers this huge hidden tax to the citizens who raise kids fair.

532 The crap that passes a advertising on YT is the same. Said to Spouse Flyover this past weekend: according to all these ads, I'm not the target demographic for any of these products. I am very happy to oblige them by not buying any of it.

******************

marketing consists of 99% women and .05% soyboys, who are never challenged on their woke stupidity except for old cantankerous angry farts like me. They feel like they have to pander to the "current" thing and a company has to show how enlightened it is in giving back to the community and saving mother earth etc, otherwise nobody will buy their stuff.

I say the obvious: nobody gives a horse's fuck about a company's social virtues. it comes down to do they offer a useful product; and does that product serve the consumer's specific needs? Then advertise that, and shut the fuck up about everything else.

I had to say this to my own former dermatologist, who puts a We Support Ukraine piece on his website. Im like, if I have a mole that needs to be checked out why in the blue fucking hell do I care whether you support Ukraine or not? Are you retarded?

Of course, if I did that, I would buy just so many more movies. I could get Zardoz for less than $150!
Posted by: TheJamesMadison

British TV rarely requires UHD (George Gently series is one exception) so combining a cheap small dvd player plus an upscaling HD tv works quite well. I have noticed some issues with upscaling fast action from some really old series like the b&w BBC Robin Hood from the 50's both overall I am pretty pleased. On computers and electronics, I usually stay about 3 yrs or so behind current tech as the sweet spot of cost and benefit.

"Culture is Upstream from Politics" .. OK, accepting that premise, it is cool that so much of culture is Hollywood and MSM driven. So knowing all those detail of every leftist fairy tale is good, for keeping in touch with Leftist Controlled "culture".

But it may be that just staying away and being well read on more standard Western culture history/literature ... would be a better course? Or maybe some can do it all and remain Christian and virtuous?

idk ... the Amish might have a point in trying to stay separate, but some more moderate approach to moderating the levels of full immersion into Leftist Driven Culture ... might also have its place.

They implied in Frozen that Kristoff has a weird relationship with his reindeer in the Fixer Upper song, saying it violates natures laws. So Disney has already hinted at bestiality.

When you know that one of the songwriters won a Tony for writing Avenue Q, it all makes sense.

579 I am sure when you're Disney and you just happen to have a lot of pedophiles working at your company, many things seem organic.

580 562 12 Monkeys did it better.

Well yeah, that's a masterpiece, one of the best movies of the last 30 years. I really like Terminator 2 but its just a fun action flick. 12 Monkeys is very smart sci fi and social commentary.

Predestination paradox is lazy scifi writing.

583 I mean, it's not surprising that he organically came to this in his script, as it's what you'd expect a pedophile to do.

584 You know I was a tomboy precisely because I loved boys and boy stuff not because I liked girls.
I’m long grown up now and still a tomboy who loves guy things, and guys.
This stupidity from the ugly lesbian NOW types that somehow tomboys are also lesbians is just more bitter twisted dried up womb fruit from ugly bitter women.
