"Iconic heroes. Inspiring stories."
That's how Disney and Lucas Film describe their next light speed jump within the Star Wars universe. "Star Wars: Forces of Destiny" concentrates on the female heroes of Star Wars, bringing further balance to an unbalanced roster of mostly male characters.
The men of Star Wars have always been at the forefront of the universe - the first six films, every Star Wars TV show, and hundreds of "expanded universe" novels and books. It's only recently that the new Star Wars films have featured women as lead roles in a male dominated story. Now, this roster of powerful, inspiring, and smart female characters are making their voices even bigger as they take the helm. Packed with familiar faces the likes of Princess Leia, Padmé Amidala, Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Jedi queen Ahsoka Tano, and Twi’lek pilot Hera Syndulla, this is sure to please all Star Wars fans everywhere!
But, wait. What's that sound in the distance? It's- it's the MALE EGO! TAKE COVER!

Well, there you have it. Disney and Lucas Film should rewrite "Star Wars: Forces of Destiny" to include all of the male characters that have been beaten into the ground over and over again.
