Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Might Have a Queer Character

Introduction – Dec 6, 2019

The entertainment industry is effectively the propaganda come mind-control department for the New World Order. They constantly bombard us with streams of subtle messages, both overt and subliminal, designed to shape the way we see the world.
That includes everything from the way we view politics and sexual roles to the way we perceive race and racism.
However, far from reaffirming traditional male and female roles the entertainment industry has done the opposite. Defying gender convention, women are now often cast in roles where they behave more like men. You know the sort of movie where women defy men and show them they can be better than the opposite sex in street fights and business.
It is all part of a concerted media drive to promote the more masculine side of women, in the place of traditional femininity.
We could see something similar in the next Star Wars movie too.
Director JJ Abrams hints as much below and given the ongoing campaign to mainstream homosexuality we wouldn’t be surprised to see an LGBTQ character prominent in his next movie. If that happens expect them to be cast in a neutral role or portrayed positively. That’s because many of those who see the movie will be kids or youngsters and they cannot be taught to see LGBTQ characters negatively.
In other words the next movie in the Star Wars franchise could be a prime New World Order/Globo-homo production. Ed.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Might Have a Queer Character

Laura Bradley — Vanity Fair Dec 4, 2019

J.J. Abrams hints that real LGBTQ representation could be just around the corner for the Star Wars universe—but Oscar Isaac still wishes his and John Boyega’s characters could have explored their own “natural chemistry” further.

Finn and Poe might always be the Star Wars couple that never was, but Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams has hinted that even if Oscar Isaac and John Boyega never hook up onscreen, queer representation could be on the way. That might not be enough to sate the fans who have clamored for years to just let Poe and Finn hook up, but hey—it’s something, right?

During an interview with Variety, Abrams said it was important to him while casting his Star Wars films to make sure the films’ universe “looked more the way the world looks than not. And in the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film.” The director naturally played coy when Variety asked if that meant the upcoming film would include a queer character, but did remark, “I will say I’m giving away nothing about what happens in the movie—but I did just say what I just said.”

When Variety spoke with Isaac, he repeated his enthusiasm for the idea of letting Poe and Finn’s relationship cross into more explicitly romantic territory, noting that he had “natural chemistry” with Boyega from day one. “I remember it was an audition and the two of us just, like, did that first scene back to back—butt to butt—just doing the scene together, practicing in this room,” Isaac said. “Immediately all kind of artifice, everything just collapsed. There was an intimacy that was just there…. Personally I kinda had hoped and wished that maybe that would have been taken further in the other films, but I don’t have control over that.”

Some fans have been clamoring for a queer Star Wars character for years, largely to no avail. Donald Glover, who starred as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, offered the extratextual note that his character was queer by asking in an interview, “How can you not be pansexual in space?” But within the film itself, there was no indication that his character was anything but heterosexual.

Have some fans really “been clamouring for a queer Star Wars character”, as the above writer claims? If so how many were “clamouring”? Was it a lot of fans, or just one or two percent? And where does Laura Bradley, the writer, get the idea from about “natural chemistry”? Or was that just part of the brief she got from the studio to write this puff piece?

  1. I was about 8 when star wars first hit the flicks and after dad drove us in all the way from the burbs and as we walked up George st Sydney the excitement was so unbearable I almost piddled my cords. It was the first week release and the crowds on the first Saturday were also unbearable. It was like everyone in Sydney was there and in unison. Unfortunately dad didn’t book ahead and we missed out to much disappointment but the up side was I got to see the movie “Wizards” an animation of epic proportions relating to where we are at today brilliantly. As a kid I missed most of the gist of it but not now that’s a given.
    A gift from thy father thanks dad many cheers.
    My star wars sits in hoc shops and second hand dealers and is just over priced plastic but my nose will always be able to sniff out an original figure just by its smell and that’s all star wars ever did for me.
    Truth is star wars has no good guys, not in the sense of Jonathan E from the original Rollorball or Logan from Logan’s run. Even BJ from the 70s tv series BJ and the Bear had more class than a character from star wars. Crikey to be honest I’d sooner watch the digitally remastered version of Baywatch and that’s saying something especially the way the Germans love the Hoff. But the tv is now just an ornament, a relic from a previous time and here I sit rambling on a screen of touch doing my best to convince Mr ju that if he put decent content on tv I wouldn’t be here.
    I can imagine very clearly how good our viewing would be if Mr ju had no influence in the transmissions at all.
    How funny that with all the gloss of Hollywood the Chinese film industry still makes more money and better truer content.
    Hollywood can stick a light saber right up itself but it would obviously prefer a tranny to do it.

  2. No one’s clamouring for a tranny or a homo in Star Wars. In fact, no one’s clamouring for Star Wars. It’s yet another ‘Got Woke Got Broke’ franchise of late, to join the growing number of clearly, agenda driven, crap the Hollywood, the msm and entertainment industry are churning out.
    Like Dunno Y above, I was 6 when Star Wars came out and remember going down to the local cinema, with my family and it was amazing. There literally was nothing that came close to Episode IV: A New Hope back in 1977. And it stayed that way for a very long time. And like Dunno Y, all my Star Wars toys will be here there and everywhere, most certainly in some other’s collection, but they’re just plastic. My memory will always be the film.
    And again, like Dunno Y, China and Japan are pumping out far better films than Holywood and the west are. Better story, better character development and a people who have a pride and love for their culture and history, clearly proving they don’t want to see it die. There are no blacks in Chinese cinema, portraying ninjas and Samurais. There’s simply beautiful movies. China has some great movies, but it was the simple ones from Japan that really took me. When the Last Sword is Drawn, The Twilight Samurai and After the Rain are particular favourites. No one in my country (UK) wants to celebrate their history and nation. I have to go to the far east to look for that kind of appreciation.

    Gonna ha the STOP you right there. Ever hear of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid? By your logic, they too were poo stuffers.
    NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE GAY.

  4. Hopefully the parents will see sense and boycott this proposed “Gay Wars” muck.
