….or does it? Ever since Episode VII was announced and we found out there was a female lead AND a black Stormtrooper, there was constant debates and some outright horrible statements being made. Then Disney put yet ANOTHER female in the lead role of their next Star Wars film; Rogue One. This has sparked many more debates on whether Emperor Kennedy is only looking to cast strong female leads, but now that is over! (maybe..) DigitalSpy published an article that finally put the ongoing diversity issue in terms the industry can understand….diverse casts make all-around more money! Read all about this here and let us know your thoughts in the comments below. (this should be fun)
DISCLAIMER: The term “Emperor Kennedy” is meant to be tongue-in-cheek and is not meant to be taken as negative views towards the diversity article. This is just a loving term I coined for humor.
More details emerge on some of the issues surrounding the debacle known as the Han Solo film. Among the issues raised were the number of camera placement variations the directors used (3 instead of the expected 12-15 from Emperor Kennedy), Hiring an acting coach for the Lead Actor playing Han, and Lord & Miller shooting scenes as Kennedy and Kasdan requested only to film additional takes afterwards their way. Phew! Read more in this article from The Hollywood Reporter! Special Thanks to JTA Reader Martin for the heads up!
