First of all, that was a background character with zero dialogue (if we ignore her singing Jedi Rocks). Second of all, I’m not even sure she’s human.

Coming back to the comment of hair-dyeing, I’m annoyed by the fact Disney has introduced main characters with weird hair colors, while Lucas never did that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m open to new stuff in Star Wars: new spaceships, new planets, new lightsabers, etc. I’m perfectly fine with that. But outstanding hair colors feel so out of place in Star Wars, that stuff should belong in anime.

I think my distaste of anime hair in TLJ is no different than the fan reaction to the toilet humour in TPM. On both occasions we got something that didn’t feel like Star Wars at all, and fans were pissed off.

I wasn’t even a huge fan of the hair color choice myself, but holy hell this is just…I don’t have words.

The purple hair is a blatant ignoring of the rules of the Star Wars universe that Lucas has carefully crafted over the course of 35 years.

Think about it. Lucas threw all sorts of weird stuff at us, including spherical space stations, green aliens with horns, 10ft tall slugs, 1000 degree swords and dozens of alien planets, but he never, EVER shoved humans with weird hair colors down our throats.

The Last Jedi payed homage to so many parts of Lucas’ original work, but they completely ruined it by having this one character with a very outstanding characteristic in marked contrast with everything else the series ever had up until then. That was for me the primary reason this character had to go completely. It had nothing to do with her gender, or the fact she didn’t tell Poe the plan (although that was pretty stupid). If she hadn’t had purple hair, I probably would have allowed her to stay in the film with her lightspeed suicide.

Never explored the EU, I see.
