    Then Disney killed her off within 1 movie. Granted she did die in real life, BUT STILL.

    Can we have the reverse Bechtel test where if a female character is inexplicably kicking the shit out of a dude that is double her size, it fails? Super powers notwithstanding, that is always something that irks me. Intergender fight, fine, whatever, but give me one frame of her taking off brass knuckles or some shit to make it believable that 110 lb. lady can somehow suplex a 250 lb. roided up linebacker.

    The problem with Leia is the word "original", meaning they can't do that ever again, too risky, heebies AND the jeebies.

    Star Wars has always been (ahem) entry-level in terms of complexity, world-building and narrative cohesion. The thick lore all came outside the main films in the form of comics, books, games, etc., and I'd venture the best stuff was produced during the lulls between the main films. There so much good shit out there right now, (the Dune films, Scavenger's Reign, Godzilla Minus One, just off the top of my head), the stuff Disney is pushing is too elementary to be worth my time. If my 12-year old niece or someone came raving about it (how else does a 39 year old man wind up with baby yoda swag), maybe, but...fuck Star Wars until they come up with something worthwhile.
