“It wasn’t personal”.

“What is that supposed to mean? I’m so sick of that. All that means is that it wasn’t personal to you. But it was personal to me. It’s personal to a lot of people. What is so wrong with being personal anyway?”

“Nothing”.

“Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal”.

Rian Johnson was very adamant about having a woman of color playing the character to “subvert expectations”. His pick was Rodriguez from the get-go, but something didn’t gel there at all with anyone else but him. Kathleen Kennedy’s favorite was Bel Powley. KMT didn’t come into the fray until a little later.
—  casting. not a surprise, but I thought you might want receipts in case KK comes rolling round trying to claim KMT as a diversity win for herself/Lucasfilm. no no no, we know who to thank, and it’s Rian for fighting and Kelly Marie Tran for being fucking amazing. also no Gina Rodriguez? I feel cheated

Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.

Sooooo since Lucasfilm and Disney and KKKennedy are probs gonna ruin Finn and Poe, who's gonna write a RomCom set in Chicago where Oscar Isaac and John Boyega meet and fall in love at a gay bar run by lesbian owners Kelly Marie Tran and Daisy Ridley? Like, should we start the kickstarter now, or? (Oh, a big point here, Oscar and John's characters end up together and it's HAPPY and cute and romantic as fucking HELL.)

this is so cute!!!! let me preorder these tickets tf?
