You’re a fascist. (Did I hit you hard enough?)

Anyway, I don’t see this becoming an issue in the show itself. As much as I hate woke culture, I have yet to see any Star War content embrace it. Any problems with the series’s recent output have nothing to do with some “political agenda”. It’s mass media for general audiences, so it’s kept as apolitical as possible. At most you get the hilariously pitiful passive progressive bits like the infamous lesbian kiss in TRoS. I’m all for gay representation but that was just insulting. I guess you could argue there’s merit in treating it with subtlety in the long run to destigmatize it, but it didn’t come off that way.

I can’t wait for release dates and trailers to start rolling out. This is going to be a great year for Star Wars fans (Acolyte is 2023).

I can’t help but think back to that video someone linked in the Rangers of the New Republic thread about how every announced project is a Schrodinger’s Cat until they start filming. Then again, I suppose casting is a good sign.

And you say this is going to be a great year then specify that The Acolyte is next year? I’m a little confused here.
