so is coloring this film

listen either finn is gonna get w/ rey (interracial couple in a prominent film franchise, still relatively uncommon in modern media) or finn is gonna get w/ rose (interracial couple consisting of two people of color in a prominent film franchise, even LESS common in modern media) or finn is gonna get w/ poe (interracial QUEER couple consisting of two men of color in a prominent film franchise, unquestionably groundbreaking) so like, no matter who finn winds up with romantically, it’s all good, it’s all important from a representation standpoint, u can all have ur ship wars but i am excited to see who our lord and savior finn chooses and will support him no matter what

“It was a matter of joy to me to have this be a completely African film. This is the only Caucasian actor in this film, the one who [Phiona] plays in the chess olympics, and of course, she doesn’t say a word. This is the treatment that so many of us, of color, have been given in so many films, where we are there as backdrops to nameless and faceless places, and are never given a word to speak. this was my little wink at correcting that ratio.” - Mira Nair (Queen of Katwe, 2016)
