So what are Leslye’s qualifications to create a Star Wars show beyond her genitalia?
Her experience doesn’t exactly instill confidence.
Indeed, when we look at her imdb credits, it doesn’t exactly scream sci-fi action.
But hey, everyone has to start somewhere, right? So maybe it’s her passion as a Star Wars fan that got her the job.
In an interview with Fortune Magazine, Kathleen Kennedy said that she will hire a female director, but that she wants to make sure it’s a person that is set up for success because it’s not a position that they can just fill with a token woman. She said she doesn’t have a lot of women who call her that are passionate about Star Wars and want to be a part of it. What a shocker.

So does Leslye have that kind of passion for Star Wars?
When Kathleen Kennedy was asked if she had always been a Star Wars fan, she sidestepped the issue by prattling on about technology, which demonstrated that no, she was never a fan.

Interestingly, Leslye Headland uses the same sidestepping technique when asked what kind of Star Wars fan she is. Instead of talking about what a big fan she is of Star Wars, she prattles on about how there aren’t any actual Star Wars movies in an interview with Variety. I shit you not. Mecha Random comments:
In other words, she isn’t a Star Wars fan at all, but she might like the cute cosplay outfits.
Only one thing is for certain; this “female-centric” series will provide endless comedy gold for YouTubers everywhere.
