Read my blog and see if that’s true.
What’s with lack of diversity in Star Wars? There are tons of aliens. Remember, it takes place in a galaxy far far away. Human beings are a minority of the beings found in the worlds of Star Wars. Right? What am I missing?
I don't either, but he was in there
Star wars ceased to be any good about half way through “Return of the Jedi”.
It seems that humans are by far the majority species in the galaxy; there’s plenty of aliens, but about half the people you run into are human.
They just want you to think that.

Nothing about her personally, but a while back ago they had an announcement where they introduced the cast. Then people started complaining that there were no women announced. Then they started announcing that several women were joining the cast. So, is the script even written, are these randon extras given some lines, what are these late announced characters? It doesn’t give me any confidence that they have anything nailed down yet.
I thought it died at Hoth.
He’s as old and crotchety as the falcon.
Don’t get cocky kid.
We won’t win this one sitting on our Depends, Han!
Thanks for the laughs.
They have a bad case of Mynocks.
I guess it is hard to say exactly when it “jumped the shark” but by the time there were Ewoks in the scenery, it had definitely jumped.
She looks like she should playing Uhura. Maybe that’s the new plot. Star Trek time warps into a galaxy a long long time ago...
I JJ Abrams running this thing now??
That is a good one. I am not LOL but it did make me smile.
I think he is actually
Lens Flare futures just shot way up
History repeats itself. First movie had no diversity of the earthly kind so to appease the racial critics....ta da Lando. There was no internet back then but Lucas feeling the whiners wrath and being a good lib he added Lando to the mix.
Where did you dig up that old fossil?
You guys must have some sort of secret decoder rings for the gibberish you are posting?
Oh, my goodness, yum, yum, YUM.
Billy Dee Williams doesn't like the "need more diversity" talk any more than the rest of us.
Some asked him how growing up as a black man in America prepared him for his roles, to bring something to the Star Wars franchise. He said that he was inspired by the rogues in American movies (pirates, film noir). He said it wasn't anywhere near our world, that his personal life experiences didn't come into play.
Yep, way up. Watching Star Trek: 2009 with all the lens flares I thought it was the symptom of an upcoming Grand Mal seizure. From looking at Star Trek: Into Darkness some of the studio suits musta noticed and told JJ to back off of the lens flares because I didn’t notice as many. BTW JJ Abrams use of lens flares must drive the director of cinematography absolutely batty because JJ is deliberately inducing something most cinematographers try to avoid.
I agree. I don’t know why the guy likes lens flares so much, or why Michael Bay loves making movies without a plot but lots of booms or why Attack of the Clones had nobody being attacked by clones....
But I do love “Honest Trailers” on Youtube, those are funny.
