Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jon Kasdan strikes back against salty fans


Jon Kasdan strikes back against Star Wars fans, who are hating on his comments regarding diversity in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The Star Wars galaxy is becoming a place of diversity and inclusion, which is a beautiful thing for people from all walks of life now embracing the franchise — instead of being solely a boys club, which it was for many years.

The lovely Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe and voice of the groundbreaking character Ahsoka Tano expressed such in a recent interview with us. She reveals one reason for creating “Her” company was due to the lack of availability of women’s Star Wars merchandise across the globe.

Ashley Eckstein also admits that she’s heard hundreds of stories from women who have been bullied by men over the years because they love Star Wars. Thank the Maker for inspiring, bold people such as Mrs. Eckstein, who take a stand against cruelty and bullying — she’s the greatest, isn’t she? 

Sorry to break it to some of you, but Star Wars is for all people now, so get over it!

Unfortunately, not everybody feels that way, shown by reactions from salty fanboys to a recent interview done by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan — who revealed the gender identity of Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story — who is pansexual.

“Reaction” is too kind of a word, with outrage being a more fitting term. Such responses prove our point that much of the Star Wars fandom is toxic and that this sort of behavior needs to stop. In fact, it should not be tolerated — yet, it persists.

Jon Kasdan strikes back, responding via Twitter to this angry pitchfork mob of delusional fans.

Boom. Roasted. Jon Kasdan is right in more ways than one. From the beginning, George Lucas blatantly included political themes within a galaxy far, far away. He even admits that Star Wars and politics go hand in hand.

Star Wars is for all ways of life, as Jon Kasdan states: “EVERYONE: straight, gay, black, white, brown, Twi’lek, Sullustan, Wookie, DROID & anything in between.”

A galaxy far, far away is finally a safe-haven for all people. Sadly, many take issues to such thing, and it’s quite depressing. If you don’t believe me, feast your eyes on some of these reactions to Jon Kasdan. I’ll warn you, that doing so will make you lose all faith in humanity. It’s shocking. Even for the Internet.

Really? The Kasdans have “no clue” what they are doing? All Lawrence Kasdan achieved is creating the character of Han Solo with George Lucas, while writing and directing the highest rated Star Wars film of all-time in The Empire Strikes Back. 

Both Kasdan’s helped write The Force Awakens and Jon Kasdan co-wrote Rogue One, two of the most successful box office films in history.

No Christopher, why don’t you and your bigotry just go away?

Lando hooking up with female aliens is nothing new in the Star Wars galaxy, revealed clearly in the 2015 Lando comic and the recent novel Last Shot. 

No one was upset about interspecies mating when a Clone Trooper and a Twi’lek were getting it on in Star Wars: The Clone Wars — which is also pansexualism in the context of Star Wars.

How is addressing current themes in the culture ruining Star Wars? It’s always been prevalent in the films. You and the other crybaby “fans,” ( who are not real fans, to be frank) are what’s ruining Star Wars. 

Not liking a film or story is one thing, but accusing Kathleen Kennedy, Rian Johnson, and Jon Kasdan of being social justice warriors and of not caring about the franchise is ridiculous.

It’s flat-out delusional, in reality, like many of these people responding to Jon Kasdan.

Just go away, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out. While us real fans are enjoying Solo: A Star Wars Story, you can have fun embracing your precious boycott. 

You will be missed. Not by me so much. But you will be missed.

Next: Lando, Whiners and Criers and Pansexuals, Oh My!
