I always have the impression that Kathleen Kennedy cares more about girl power than understanding star wars as a whole.

You know, sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s a genuine intention she’s expressing when making the thing and what’s just marketing buzzwords. She could easily just be talking girl power to drum up hype with wokeys without actually factoring it into the creative process. It’s like when a company changes their logo to be rainbow colored for “Pride Month” (which itself is a disgustingly consumerist concept). It’s not a political stance, it’s “Look, we’re just like you! Buy our product!” I think the same can apply here. They talked up the “diversity” of the Rogue One cast big time in the lead-up to its release, for example. Just ignore the marketing buzz.
