Diego Luna is gorgeous. A precious gift. And it’s SO awesome that many latinx kids will feel identified with his character.
Apparently the new Star Wars combo is British girl+Latino guy. And we all love it.
Even though I want more brown and black and asian girls in Star Wars, having a girl as the main character in the last two movies is just perfect. Telling girls everywhere that they can be heroes and not only princesses is the best. Really thank you <3
The only white guy in the film’s gang of rogues (who are the good guys) is a robot, so I don’t know if he even counts.
The rest of the gang is made of: a woman, a latino, two asians, and an indian. A perfectly colourful ensamble.
And we can add Forest Whitaker.
Not exactly in the gang, but the other (and visibly only) white guy is Mads Mikkelsen. And he’s perfect. Anyway, have you noticed that he’s everywhere? Well, I am definitely not complaining.
I’m not gonna spoil anything BUT there are a lot of cameos. Like a LOT. You’ll be very happy when they happen.
Darth Vader. Darth. Fuckin. Vader.
And capes. Wonderful capes. Let’s ignore Edna Mode’s advice and let them wear wonderful capes.
Crowley Eusford is an exhausted (s)cinnamon roll that must be protected at any costs:
This particularly bittersweet if you know about the content of the Vampire Mikaela novels.
He is probably remembering Jose and his lost comrades and apprentices. Ferid is emotionally manipulating him, but I love the fact we are seeing a reaction from Crowley.
While we do not know what will happen from then on, I like Crowley’s behaviour towards Yuuichirou. Crowley is patient and seems mildly annoyed by Yuu’s anticts, in the same sense as a big brother/mentor.
I wonder, now that we know Guren is messed up, if Crowley will partially take the mentor rol Guren used to have with Yuuichirou. I do not mean Guren will disappear or die, since he is a key character, but now Guren is starting that Coup D’Etat, most of his subordinates must disapprove him after the awakening of the 5th Trumpet in Nagoya, and we yet had to see what his squad and Shinya will do (and how they will voice their opinions and particular feelings -if Kagami allows it, that is-) from then on.
Back to my subject, I find this endearing. Our rough, cynical and troubled ex emplar knight, who witnessed all of his comrades getting killed by certain silver-haired asshole vampire, is starting to react to the interactions with those around him.
Though, we haven’t seen him properly talk with other humans than Yuu (he is the protagonist after all), we do not know much about this relationship with Mikaela, and yet have to see what he will do with Shinoa’s squad (and I would love to see him bonding with them).
