Re: Casting Rey-Star Wars: The Force Awakens
It's bigger than lasers and shit. Star Wars serves a bigger role than that. JJ Abrahams put this new era of the franchise on the right path.
There has been talks about introducing a homosexuality angle with Poe and Finn. From what I've seen on twitter and among the internet... Most people are for this idea. I concur. Not many big time movie franchises are this bold. But it's 2016. Star Wars, spearheaded by Disney, need to progress to the next level of acceptance and equality. They got off to a great start with a powerful dominant female lead, and introducing racial minorities as focal characters to the plot. These are baby steps, they need to keep progressing to greater heights.
Homosexuality... Gender fluid characters, a transexual...
Star Wars needs to look at the bigger picture here. Film is a form of art that greatly shape the society and culture we live in. It's time we accepted this. It's more than the lasers and jedis and shit. That stuff isn't important. What message it sends to our kids...
