Having more leading roles for women and actors of ethnic origins other than European isn't something film studios deserve praise for post-2010. It's just a minimum standard for not being dicks. No amount of not-being-dicks makes up for releasing a movie that's a badly plotted, contradictory mess.

It's because of the bad writing, not the diverse cast, that most fans of the original #StarWars trilogy aren't fans of the prequels or the sequels. The alt-right critics don't speak for most of us, and it's insulting, PR arse-covering by Disney and its apologists to pretend that they do.

@wolf480pl I mean people who were adults and already fans of the originals when we saw the prequels.
