'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' stars blast film's all-male version

“The Last Jedi” without Rey, Leia and the other female cast members? The stars reacted about how you would think.

It could be a plotline in Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale[1].” Australian site Pedestrian reported on Monday [2]that an anonymous person edited “Star Wars: The Last Jedi[3]” to eliminate or minimize the female characters, uploading the resulting cut to Swedish file-sharing website The Pirate Bay[4]. The 46-minute-long cut eliminates Laura Dern’s Admiral Holdo entirely and reduces the roles of Daisy Ridley (Rey), Carrie Fisher (Leia) and Kelly Marie Tran (Rose), among other bizarre changes.

“When there’s a scene where a woman is cut in making some important statement that can be substituted by another statement by a guy, then she gets cut out,” Pedestrian quotes the anonymous uploader. Also, the new edit “cut out most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas.” Writer Priscilla Page[5] started the online mockery, and some famous Star Wars faces soon joined in.

Good talk, everyone. I’m glad we hashed this out.

Fans had their say, too, with more than one envisioning the reaction of late star Carrie Fisher[17], who played Leia and was famously unafraid to speak out.

And somewhere, Carrie is deciding which one of the thin-skinned fanboys she shall bestow the Great Cosmic Middle Finger upon first.

This is one of those moments that I wish Carrie was here to have a take on this… @rianjohnson @HamillHimself[19][20]

Oh man, I wonder the glorious joke that Carrie Fisher would come up for this stupidity ?

I think we all know her take.
