Star Wars Recognizes Transgender Representation

The Star Wars universe recognized transgender representation on Transgender Day of Visibility 2021 with a social media announcement. I’ve made no secret of my own Star Wars story. If not for Star Wars and Jurassic Park, I would not be doing what I do today. While the news comes in the form of two non-binary characters during the High Republic era, it gives me hope that trans women also exist somewhere in the universe. If…

Gina Carano Fired: What Happens with Cara Dune?

Lucasfilm made the decision to fire Gina Carano so the question going forward is what will happen to Cara Dune on The Mandalorian. I am transgender and Jewish so it was very refreshing to hear that Lucasfilm is no longer employing the actor.  Her words for quite a while have been offensive and it only got worse during the fall.  According to some of the articles, it appeared that Carano lost out on the Rangers…

Gina Carano Must Be Fired From The Mandalorian

The Walt Disney Company has an obligation to fire actress Gina Carano from The Mandalorian following her Twitter activity. I don’t take this lightly.  This is not only something I say as a Star Wars fan but I also feel an obligation to speak out as a Disney shareholder.  If Cara Dune is part of The Mandalorian‘s third season, it will make for some rather uncomfortable viewing.  Should Dune be brought back for season 3,…

The Mandalorian: Thoughts on the Season Finale

The Mandalorian concluded its eight-episode second season with one of the best hours of television in years and I have many thoughts. I have thoughts and there are no shortage of them.  But before I get to them, I am going to insert a photo from the episode.  But of course, you would not be reading this if you didn’t already watch the episode.  If you’re coming from Twitter, I’m sorry that they include photos…

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special: On Brand For 2020

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is one of the perfect ways to help close out 2020 and the year would not have it in any other way. When it comes to the LEGO Star Wars universe, they have a fun way of mixing in humor with the seriousness of the saga.  This special is no different.  While it does take place following The Rise of Skywalker, it has some fun with the timeline.  Call…

Sisters of the Force: My Star Wars Story

Ashley Eckstein took to the stage during Star Wars Celebration for Sisters of the Force to celebrate the women of the Star Wars universe. Almost as soon as the voice of Ahsoka Tano took to the stage for the Sisters of the Force panel, she told the mostly female audience that “Star Wars is for everyone.” The actress couldn’t be more right. All one has to do is look at the online vitriol.  This has…
