Broken clocks and whatnot. Even if someone has a valid point it may not be best to associate with them.
"More women in Star Wars" does not equal "More women than men in Star Wars" since they were starting at a deficit.No see.. you 'presume' something - while the rest of us are listening to what KK has gone on record saying their motivation was.
Absolutely brilliant post. You nailed it 1000%. I hope those blood-sucking CHUDs at corporate are pooping bricks over this.How do you not promote this with a Vader ad, a Skywalker ad, Yoda, heck capitalize off of the Mandalorian craze. R2, 3PO. You know. Actual Star Wars characters.
No. Just give us very bland characters that nobody has any emotional connection with - and set it in a Nickelodeon “Teens in Space” backdrop. And we’re good. That should “sell” us on 6k for 2 nights.
From what I’ve seen over the past few weeks I’m getting a Mystery Science 3000 vibe.
Your post and this whole Starcruiser reaction made me realize something.Okay. That's good to know. I was actually wondering why there were no droids seen in the videos they released this month.
They made such a big deal five years ago about "roaming droids" that were supposed to be in Star Wars Land. And then the place opened and... nothing. No droids. Except for plastic Chinese made toys you could buy in the shops.
In my defense, it's a video that Disney put out on purpose for this exact audience here; theme park fans and those interested in new theme park experiences.
Will it have the reach of a Super Bowl commercial or perky puff piece on Good Morning America? No. But Disney released it on purpose for us here. And it didn't help.
That one lady at the table kept going on about luggage, and how your luggage delivery will be part of the show. As if luggage-based adventures are exactly what Star Wars fans have been yearning for since 1977.
Through the course of this conversation here, and watching some YouTube videos from fans that are brutally scathing in their criticism of this whole mess, I've now come to the conclusion that Damaro and Chapek and WDI execs must be peeing in their pants this Christmas trying to figure out what they can fix quickly in the next 60 days. At this point, they can't not know the multiple levels of failure this thing seems soaked in.
That part at least makes me chuckle.
The problem with Stars Wars is, the technology doesn't exist. It's a fantasy science fiction film. Stop looking at it as real possibilities. Perhaps one day the human race will be a multi planetary species but for now, use your imagination. The hotel isn't perfect.
So yeah, this Galactic Starcruiser.
Interested to see and hear more about it when the time comes for more roll outs from marketing.
Maybe some 'damage control' after what seemed to be a poor reaction to the promotional video?
Regardless, I'm wanting to hear more about what other activities and scenic options are contained within.
Also looking forward to the explosion of discussion once the place opens officially and the 'vloggers' and press reps get in there to experience it first hand.
Then we just have to filter through the 'paid shills' to get to someone who gives a honest and non-biased review of the place.
This is going to be a fun spring.
No, the lulz is on you and your original use of a strawman to misrepresent what KK is saying in order to knock down the imaginary feminization of Star Wars.Lol - strawman to the rescue... You're the only one arguing percentages or representation in the product and if its valid or not.
Telling a story of a world where one presumes half the population is female, and then leaving them mostly left out, is, I would say, the true artifice here.
You have to work very hard, or have a very big blind spot, to tell a story and leave out the usual mix of human (and other sentient) beings... unless you want to say, "Hey, look, this society is stupidly patriarchal, just like ours was up until very recently!!"
"More women in Star Wars" does not equal "More women than men in Star Wars" since they were starting at a deficit.
Outside the trilogies, the two standalones had a woman protagonist (Jyn) and a male protagonist (Han). [The female-led movie was much better received by all audiences.]
The D+ series has had a male protagonist so far. (Not to mention the overwhelming male-dominated Bad Batch.)
The upcoming D+ series:
- co-leads, male and female (Boba Fett)
- male (Obi-Wan)
- female (Ahsoka)
If you interpreted what KK said as being "Star Wars will become *dominated* by women," then you have an issue in hearing what was really said.
And by all accounts of what has transpired, the reality of having equal representation (as opposed to overwhelming female representation) shows that you did indeed misconstrue what you 'heard.'
However, to make your point, all you have is your misrepresentation of what KK said, since what actually has happened clearly undercuts your claims.
I think killing everyone off is part of what makes it work so well. It gives the story weight within itself and the larger narrative. There’s been this trend of making the Empire less formidable and more incompetent that Rouge One bucks. Many Bonthans died getting the information on the second Death Star and it stands to reason that a lot of people died to get information on the first one. Obi-Wan says the blaster marks on the sand crawler are too precise to be Sand People and must be the work of Stormtroopers. Jyn and her crew went up against a military superpower and while they got the information out it cost them.Jyn was the best female star wars character ever. I would love to know what was different in that film before the mass of reshoots. To me jyn is alot more likeable than rey. But i know im in the minority here. The flick itself was more starwarsy than any of the new trilogy movies. Had so much classic elements. And than poof lets just kill them all. Plus the best vader scene ever? Legitimately those last 4 minutes outweighs the entire run time of the force awakens.

I know one party who won't be cancelling their reservation.......the Karma's.
You're running out of places to stay on property at $500 a nightI've always taken the approach with this thing, that I'd wait until the reviews came out. I'm way past just "trusting Disney" and relying on blind faith when it comes to the mouse. Not to say I won't go. But I sure as h$ll ain't gonna be first, or second. For $500 night, sure. For $6k. Not a chance.
