why don't you like kathleen kennedy? shes the only female and she seems nice
it’s april 2017 and there are still people who dont know kk is a white demon
- kk is an icon of white feminism.
- when she doesn’t get involved directly, female characters’ looks get incredibly diverse (animated series or novels etc. although, we can’t say they treat women of color well.)
- new female actresses who play lead roles, d ridley, f jones, and e clarke are all white brunette (just like her). this is my personal opinion but for me, f jones was the weakest part in rogue one because of her emontionless and soulless performance, but kk was the one who insisted on casting her and she’s very proud of it. we haven’t seen clarke’s performance in the upcoming han solo film yet but she’s already very famous for horrible eyebrow acting (even her fans admit it). tessa thompson and zoe kravitz, who also auditioned for clarke’s role, is obviously better than her.
- (also, i think the rogue one novel was a bit better but the movie was… it focuses on the white woman, who didn’t care about the rebellion but only herself then becomes a hero. it’s not feminism when men of color are used to spotlight a white woman, especially when one of them has sacrificed everything for the rebellion from when he was a very young kid. when i heard jyn’s character was originally more like cassian i couldn’t stop groaning because THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH BETTER.)
- ppl in disney and lucasfilm didn’t want to cast j boyega because they were reluctant to cast a non-white actor in such a big role. we don’t know kk was one of them, but donnie said when he improvised the line “i’m blind!” in rogue one, they had to ask kk if it’s okay, so we can see her decision is very important in lucasfilm. jj abrams had to fight 7 months to cast john because john was his favorite. he auditioned 9 times during 7 months, which is very irrational. even the most difficult audition (that’s how they described it), the young han solo audition took less than that.
- also one of star wars concept artists confirmed that originally rey, finn and poe were all caucasian actors and abrams was the one who said they needed more diversity, not kk.
- [someone who claimed they worked during the casting progress said this. we are not 100% sure it’s true but this person wrote in so much detail.] k marie tran wasn’t her choice either. kk wanted to cast bel powley (surprise! another white brunette) but it was the director rian johnson who said they needed a woman of color.
- ‘for some reason’ she keeps thinking white brunette women are the most ideal people to get the roles. even if she’s doing it unconsciously, it doesn’t change the fact that’s racism. she’s a racist.
- and when you
are a racist you can’t be a feminist because feminism means you support all the women.
- she seems very passionate when she talks about rey and jyn but when it’s about other actors who are men of color she suddenly becomes silent?? and she talks about this “girl power” a lot but when it’s about races, ethnicities and diversity she doesn’t say anything? it’s always the directors who sat next to her who speak about it, or actors of color themselves. her “girl power” only involves white women and yet she said star wars represented the world.
- she was a producer of complete disaster : avatar the last airbender movie, where almost everyone got whitewashed, which means she learned nothing from her past.
- she said they can’t hire female directors because they need directors with a lot of experience and who can handle big franchises like star wars, instead of giving them such opportunities. and believe me, i watch quite a lot of more films than usual people and i know some female directors who deserve more attention. and kathleen kennedy, who works in the film industry, should know better than me. also this doesn’t explain how she found and hired gareth edwards (who used to work for indie movies) and colin trevorrow (director of jurassic world, but has less experience than most of directors). and colin trevorrow, who had almost no experience but became the director of two most anticipating film franchises jurassic world and star wars sequel, once said there is no white, male privilege among directors, it’s just because female directors choose not to make blockbuster movies.

Actually, she isn’t even a feminist. Every time someone asks questions about “girl power” in panels she gets obviously irritated. One time, she was even dismissive towards the person who asked it too.
