Default Casting Rey-Star Wars: The Force Awakens

GOAT casting decision

Completely makes up for the casting of Jake Lloyd as young Anakin.

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...

That's important.

"the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.”

Honestly they just need to open the floodgates. These are issues touching on topics way more important than Sci Fi. The Star Wars Universe agrees, so let the equality flow and the good times rolling...

The movie was fine. Had it's faults like most movies but a great reentry into the series that was on life support had they missed.
