GenX Strikes Back dishes the goods:
Here’s the money quote from Kiri Hart in the Galaxy’s Edge video:
“What we’re focusing on more than ever is creating so many female characters, that are becoming so beloved.
With characters who are ethnically diverse, we’ll be sending that message, that Star Wars is for everyone. I couldn’t be more proud of it.”
Kathleen Kennedy speaks, as does Dave Filoni and so forth. And they spend some time gushing over Rian Johnson.
But does this offer a clue as to why Kiri Hart is no longer with the Story Group? Because they focused more than ever on creating so many female characters in a way that drove their pre-existing male fanbase away?
Chances are YouTube will take down GenX Strikes Back’s video long before Disney takes it down from Galaxy’s Edge, even though Kiri Hart is now merely a “consultant.”
