    Another SJW hire, she deleted hundreds of tweets the day after this announcement. I saw a recording of her talking about how "white women need to step up."I got so caught up in what kind of terminology I was using and being so politically correct"

    Why does Lucasfilm hire people like this? I mean really.
    To me Favreau is the only one that knows SW, he has more pedigree than KK. And I'm glad to see that what he is doing he can be trusted to run without getting caught up in this crap!

    Because Russian Doll was an AMAZING show and they wanted that kind of talent? Just a guess.

    Yeah, I haven't watched it, but Russian Doll was one of the most acclaimed new shows from last year, so them getting someone from it is a pretty big accomplishment.

    Wait, why is there outrage again? Are we going to question every single decision that Lucasfilm and Disney makes?

    Of course, isn't that how the internet fandom works? Most of us are completely inexperienced amateur novices when it comes to running a big Hollywood studio, but we know more about how to do the job than the highly respected producer who has been working in Hollywood longer than some of us have even been alive.

    Apparently not.

    This must be the weekly scheduled outrage.

    I’ve really stopped even browsing those ridiculous YT channels to see what was out there but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s in the talking points for the Fandom Menace content creators these days.

    YouTube, like Twitter, is a cesspool.

    no it's for a female centric show that Variety dropped a story about.

    Curious that Lucasfilm hasn't announced it. But word is someone (ahem KK) allowed the leak to get to Variety

    "Word is" means nothing.

    The usual lamebrained lying conspiracy hucksters at Midnight's Edge, most likely.

    Hmm.. variety is the most reliable trade. They broke the story about the new show.

    Yeah I think they did.

    Kind of interesting that Disnry is myte in the subject. They are announcing all konds of crap, be it about Darth Maul, Cassian Andow and pushing eposode 9 onto the streaming service three mknths rsrlier than planne . Yet they are not goong to confirm or deny or even mention this new show.

    Interesting.
