Star Wars has been back since 2015, and three movies in, we’ve only seen women protagonists in the films. Some fans have taken this as an issue with the franchise having a “Social Justice Warrior” (SJW) agenda, to which J.J. Abrams had to comment.
Though it seemed that Domnhall Gleeson’s General Hux was being groomed to be the new Tarkin of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Last Jedi had made him out to be a bit of a punching bag. Talking to the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Gleeson admits that he thought his character wasn’t going to make it to the end of the film.
Why did Rian Johnson decide to destroy Kylo Ren’s mask in The Last Jedi? Well it wasn’t because of anyone who complained about The Force Awakens nor was it against J.J. Abrams.
