Some idiots recut The Last Jedi to exclude and lessen female roles

I mean, what's better to promote a new film than a home media release of a blockbuster like "The Last Jedi" to disc and digital? Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes. In a recent interview with SyFy, Lucasfilm story group member and steward of “The Holocron” Star Wars database Leland Chee, revealed some interesting information regarding the reasons why the European Union was dumped from the now canon Star Wars universe. According to Vox and Forbes, there is also a concern about The Last Jedi trying to push a political agenda. So far, fans have had to make do with leaked promotional artwork and LEGO packaging while they impatiently wait for the first trailer.

From the opening scenes, it's clear that The Last Jedi is going to be a big departure from what's come before it. You can decide which film did Rey's origin justice.

Warning: Spoilers below if you haven't seen "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

So, continue with your fanbro edits to the film.

However, one Star Wars "fan", a term used here lightly, who disagrees with the above statement took it upon himself to create what could possibly be the most misogynistic, idiotic fan-made "Star Wars" edit of all time.

Hopefully the film is able to recapture fans that are down on the franchise due to the divisive nature of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

With Rey, you get the same eerie feeling. Is she related to Han and Leia? The Star Wars galaxy is full of bounty hunters and organized crime that make for exciting character and storytelling opportunities that are different from what we traditionally see in a Star Wars film. How the deal with that will be very interesting indeed. Kylo Ren killed his father but couldn't kill his mother.

The next installment is still being penned by Abrams and Chris Terrio (Argo) as of this writing, so it'll be a while before we hear anything more about Rey's parents or just where the heck she came from. But for me, The Last Jedi greatest flaw is its eagerness to disregard 40 years of narrative in a headlong rush to craft it into something it's not. While many films try to do a sort of recap via exposition to catch new viewers up, the deeper and more complex the mythos-and the more characters involved-the harder that becomes.
