Star Wars: Here are three woc that we’re considering for the female lead in the upcoming Han Solo movie

Internet: Cool! But how about some more darker skinned woc too because most woc in blockbuster movies are usually lighter skinned, and darker skinned woc aren’t given as many opportunities or roles. Plus, you could bring in Sana Starros, who knows Han in the Han Solo comics and is a dark skinned woc!

Star Wars (Kathleen Kennedy probably): Got it! Here’s another British brunette white woman instead!

…look, Disney.

I’ve got nothing against Emilia Clarke.

Really, I don’t.

But while Daisy Ridley is fantastic and Felicity Jones looks fine…another British white girl as the lead? 

When Tessa Thompson and Zoe Kravitz were in the running?

…at least make her an evil Imperial or an alien or something, okay?

so apperantly six woc read for the female lead in the han solo anthology film and it still ended up going to fucking emilia clarke

even tho emilia proved that she can’t handle a sci-fi film with how hard the new terminator film crashed and burned

even tho three of the women are literally apart of/have been apart of other huge movie franchises that deal with sci-fi themes, so they can fucking handle such a film

seriously how do you make the conscious choice to go with emilia clarke when your other options were tessa thompson, zoe kravitz, naomi scott, keirsy clemmons, jessica henwick and adria ajrona???????????

oh wait

i know why

A woman of color will play the female lead in the Han Solo spinoff

The ongoing search for a female lead in Star Wars’ forthcoming Han Solo spin-off film has three frontrunners, and they’re all women of color. Mad Max: Fury Road’s Zoe Kravitz and Creed’s Tessa Thompson are up for the role — and while you may not have heard of the third frontrunner, she’s starring in a massive blockbuster next year.
