"Disney is feminist" is the stupidest meme of this decade. They took the only Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale with an all-female cast and created "Frozen" after rule-63'ing all but two of the women. Disney never has and never will be pro-woman, and their casting of shit actresses to be their stars is only further evidence of that.

She played a critical role in most seasons and had a strong character development process.

No doubt we'll get a lot of the same maps from beattlefront.

>The singleplayer campaign will be approximately three or four hours of the bloodstripe TIE Pilot commando woman of color going on a short mission of self-rediscovery, culminating in her successfully capturing Luke Skywalker before deciding he's the good guy after all.

Apparently it's supposed to go up to like the farce awakens, but we won't know until more info is revealed. i can't say i even give a shit.

>No clones. No droids. No ground-to-air combat. Vehicles still on rails. No prequel music or visuals apart from maybe Mustafar if they want to resell some Rogue One DLC. They probably won't even make an Empire Strikes Back skin for Luke on Hoth.

Two things: a screenshot showing a droid model is out there, and they did a hoth luke in the first game, so at the very least we'll get those and clones. there's also concept art of a kamino map, and the darth maul/yoda bit in the trailer is in the theed generator.

>The playerbase will drop off a cliff after the first week, climb back up for some pre-Episode 8 cash in DLC, then drop a second time and never come back.

Yeah sounds about right.

You can't possibly win with Feminists because using "critical theory" or whatever the academic euphemism is they perpetually shift the goalposts. If a female protagonist is classically feminine, then she's a fragile stereotype who requires men to be successful. If she's actually powerful and independent, but doesn't act like an insecure mental case with an axe to grind against masculinity, then she's a "man with tits."

Feminists can't agree on what the liberated New Woman should act or look like, and it's immediately obvious despite any efforts to hide evidence of internal fracture and present the front of a united sisterhood (unless white women criticize non-white women).


 No.1874

>>1868

Critical theory is Marxist. Most feminists nowadays are following post-structuralists and postmodernists like Foucault who were largely anti-Marxist. For them, language is just an assertion of power. It doesn't matter if they don't make sense or contradict themselves, as long as they're pushing forward their assertions into the public consciousness. They neither care for nor believe in "truth" as a concept.


 No.1891

Actually there were more female TIE pilots than men, with men making up the bulk of Stormtroopers. 181st also had a fair number of them. Saying there isn't any is Disney Garbage trying to slander the Empire.

This bitch really is nothing but a token minority/mary sue replacement for Thrawn. Why the fuck did she need to exist? She's dragging the once proud legacy of the empire and grand admirals through the mud.

Gallius Rax was probably meant to be the ersatz Thrawn rather than her. She doesn't have his tactical acumen or cultivated mannerisms and reminds me more of a hodgepodge of various one-off moffs and warlords in the New Republic Era EU stuff.

She's unquestionably a token, but the archetypal Imperial officer didn't have much of a proud and noble legacy to uphold. There's a difference between how the villains were actually portrayed most of the time and how "Empire Did Nothing Wrong" guys roleplay.

>>1863

Pictures I don't know, but she gets shown up and shaken in both A New Dawn and that short story where they shoe-horned in Vader for marketing power. I also don't know where you get the idea that Vader's cringing in front of her. There's nothing in his body language that suggests servility; he's a 6'6" easy looking down on a much shorter woman.

She's not a very good character, which is to be expected when Cuck Wingding gets creative control of anything, but I don't think she's especially bad either.

Seriously, a lame concept. Again the EU got it right. Women in the imperial military were the exception, not the norm, even less a fucking Grand Admiral.

Maybe he was assessing the situation, doing the mental math. Also, he was actually in a defensive position. He stood there for about a second, then the rebels fired, so he could deflect those blasters. They were cornered, he dominated the battlefield.

People who criticized the prequels for being too CGI will unironically defend all these sterile digital environments. Every starship is digital that it looks more like a trailer for a video game than a movie. The tiny island goes to the opposite extreme of looking too normal, at least to me since I live somewhere that has identical terrain. Maybe I'm just nitpicking with the visuals but we should expect better from a movie with the Star Wars brand a 2017 budget.

The plot sounds terrible. Wasn't the whole point of the original trilogy to bring back the Jedi? I mean we all saw a movie called Return of the Jedi where the Jedi returned, and now Luke wants the Jedi to not return. What was the point of Ben and Yoda going through all that effort just for their prodigy to throw in the towel a few years after completing his training?

SWE does a pretty good job selling it, I suppose. I still find the Imperial racism theme somewhat annoying. I just don't understand how Galactic society built on inter-species cooperation would tolerate the state becoming de jure racist practically overnight. It's always just felt like a cheap way to make the Empire moar evil and nazi-like.

It'd be better if the Empire were bigoted against species that had never been in the Republic and treated them with colonial disdain, but instead they need to be anthropocentric barring a handful of exceptions. One of the things I wanted out of the canon reboot was for Disney to ignore that but instead they've only retconned Imperial sexism because that would make women and queers too uncomfortable.

Come to think of it, I don't know any women who are deeply into Star Wars. Then again, I guess that's not saying much since I don't know any men who are interested in it as me either. My best friend's girlfriend might since she's into "gaming history" and DC comics, but I've never asked.

I tend to scoff at the "all female geeks are fake" meme, but I truly can't think of any women who are hardcore about it. I've known women in real life who are autistically into Warhammer and Star Trek, but never Star Wars. Seems like it'd be more likely just for the comparative normalfag accessibility, yet nothing.

George Lucas hated moral relativism and shades of grey for almost the entire lifespan of the EU, and Leland Che enforced his viewpoint pretty harshly. Anybody who turned preached something like the Potentium Theory or a rainbow spectrum of the Force was retconned either by a blurb in a more recent book or an official Word of God correction of the record to have been misled, secretly Dark Side, or ignorant. "Grey Jedi" was redefined as a Light Side Jedi who didn't strictly follow the prescribed rules of the Jedi Order such as Qui-gon didn't. But even if the Jedi weren't always correct, it was at least C-canon that their point of view was the "most" correct.

Lucas only started backtracking on that towards the end of Clone Wars when he said that the Mortis Arc contained the theme that the Light Side and Dark Side were both necessary and needed to be kept in rough equilibrium. That's a total reversal from his earlier position that the Dark Side was unnatural cancer and "balance" just meant the Light destroying it altogether.

I'm not even sure it's "Disney" that doesn't want to go into middle ground and shades of grey since they own plenty of other bought properties that explore such themes. Instead I think the LucasArts stewards themselves are too scared of deviating from what they think are Lucas' blue prints. Even Dave Filoni, who gets /our guy/ praise is afraid of featuring Sith spirits in the cartoons because Lucas didn't think that Dark Siders should be allowed to persist after dying.

That's been my problem with the New (tm) Canon in a nutshell: Everything is played ultra-conservative unless it's a standalone novel.
