Also, I do feel a little bad making fun of Warb so much over this, given how much more he cares than I do.

What is it I care about more than you?

A fictional character being changed.

Well it is obvious that you are not a much a Doctor Who fan(not just because you don’t mind a female Doctor).

I already explained it has nothing to do with Doctor Who. It could be a female Luke in a Star Wars reboot and I wouldn’t care.

Well I will guarantee you that I would not be the only one that cared, if that were to happen.

It’s stupid to care though.

If you look at the link provided by yhwx, you will see some are complaining about women of color being “sidelined”.

Yeah but you’re still complaining.

I’m a white male so it is very difficult to plant myself fully in someone different’s shoes, but I’ll try. If I were black, I’d probably be tired of all the white characters. If I were female, I’d probably be tired of all the male characters. And if I were a black female, I’d probably be tired of both.

It’s called sympathy. I try to have some.

Just because I complain about the changing of gender of character that hasn’t changed gender in over 50 years, does not mean I am unsympathetic to the years of sexism and racist that women and minorities have had to endure. But that doesn’t mean I have to approve of all the ridiculousness that extremists do.

If I read that correctly, you’re saying people who want more women/minorities in media are extremists.

If you didn’t mean that, that was a very awkward laugh I just had.

Having diverse characters in fiction can also help traditionally privileged people too, like white men. Maybe we’d have less sexism and racism if we expose people to this early.

It would open up new possibilities story-wise. How would other aliens treat her differently?

All episodes will be twice as long because male characters will keep interrupting her.

Well, actually

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

I would like to state for the record that I do not appreciate how discussion of trailers and other official material is allowed in non-spoiler threads. If you’re trying to avoid spoilers, like me, you’re probably also trying to avoid trailers. I think the stance that official material can not count as spoilers is ridiculous. Trailers and previews are deliberately designed to reveal things about the movie they are trailering or previewing. Therefore, they are spoilers in the same way, say, leaks from the set are spoilers. If you’re trying to accomplish a full media blackout, now you can’t read the spoiler thread or the non-spoiler thread.

😕

Should Vader and The Emperor even know who Yoda is?

I too think it would be best if Yoda remained a mystery and wasn’t a head of the council etc.
That he didn’t chose swampy forest because of an exile, but as a place to test himself, or a seclusion while he explores the Force, entire place for younger jedies should be sort of a pilgrimage where he decides are they worthy or not to be trained by him.

Didn’t he say he had a council on who was to be trained in ESB though?

“My own counsel will I keep, on who is to be trained!”

Counsel =/= Council

That’s just an interpretation though. He could have full well meant council.

The Script says:

  		YODA
  Ready, are you?  What know you 
  of ready?  For eight hundred years 
  have I trained Jedi.  My own counsel 
  will I keep on who is to be trained!
  A Jedi must have the deepest 
  commitment, the most serious mind.

They’re completely different words.

If that script is genuine and authentic, then yes, you are correct.
