Great points.

I remember when people were fantasizing about what it would have been like for Tarantino or Bigelow to direct a Star Wars movie. As ludicrous as it might sound, that might be exactly what the series needs, along with directors and producers used to making movies with diverse casts who are themselves diverse.

Maybe in like 50 years the series can be retconned to have good storytelling, a diverse cast, and a diverse set of creators. It will produce a much better result than Rian Johnson or prequel Lucas, even original trilogy Lucas, could have imagined.

There is room in the Star Wars universe for high brow directors and producers and stories. Note to creators: all of the audience doesn’t have the mentality of 14-year-old boys, and even 14-year-old boys know diversity and storytelling matters.
