New woke ‘Star Wars’ movie announcement is the final nail in the coffin for fans

News & Politics

Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy may have just made a fatal error.

Kennedy is doubling down on making “Star Wars” more woke by hiring Pakistani activist Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy to direct the new Rey movie, starring Daisy Ridley.

The liberal-run media is ecstatic to announce that Obaid-Chinoy is the first woman and the first person of color to direct a “Star Wars” film.

Obaid-Chinoy is as well, telling CNN that because “we’re in 2024 now,” she thinks “it’s about time that we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away.”

Others are not so excited.

“‘Star Wars’ has handed its $67 billion empire, whatever is left of its empire, to a feminist,” Dave Rubin laughs, noting that Kathleen Kennedy herself, who has been running “Star Wars” for the past 10 years, “has basically completely destroyed it.”

Evolutionary biologist Colin Wright is in total agreement.

“They’re just injecting the activism directly into the films,” he tells Rubin, adding that the problem with “woke ideologues” is that “they can’t just make movies that embody their vision. They have to make the movie overtly about the activism itself.”

“If you want to challenge norms, just write your strong female characters. This has been done in ways that doesn’t center activism,” Wright continues, citing Jennifer Lawrence in “The Hunger Games” as an example.

“The last thing that ‘Star Wars’ needs is to continue down this activist path. Just write the good characters and the good stories,” he adds.
