Having more leading roles for women and actors of ethnic origins other than European isn't something film studios deserve praise for post-2010. It's just a minimum standard for not being dicks. No amount of not-being-dicks makes up for releasing a movie that's a badly plotted, contradictory mess.

It's because of the bad writing, not the diverse cast, that most fans of the original trilogy aren't fans of the prequels or the sequels. The alt-right critics don't speak for most of us, and it's insulting, PR arse-covering by Disney and its apologists to pretend that they do.


@wolf480pl I mean people who were adults and already fans of the originals when we saw the prequels.
