If they turn out anything like the original Clone Wars cartoon then this is pretty cool news.

You know it. And with a name like Forces of Destiny, I'm assuming one of the shorts will dive into the seedy underbelly of Coruscant strip clubs.

Definitely didn't warrant the big tease, but this is great.

A little nugget of new canon in that article intrigues me... Hera survives through RotJ.

I'd rather there just be characters in the movies and not have a panel about why it's important.

Not a panel I'd be interested in attending at all. But I do love people who bag on liberals for "safe spaces" and P.C. (often warranted), but then turn right around and get outraged by something harmless that upsets their precious sensibilities.

so does the + in LGBTQ+ mean all the things they didn't think of? You know if I were a unisex species I would be offended there wasn't a U in there.

Because it's nothing but a PR stunt. You want to support the community, create some characters in canon that are whatever the acronym is. It does way more to show equality and inclusivity to include them in pop culture than to talk about it.

Example: Beauty and the Beast.

What they did was say "Check out this guy's big gay moment coming up"
What happened: A wet fart. He ended up getting spun into some guys arms and looked confused.

Create characters, include them in the canon. Do it without some big "LOOK AT ME LOOK HOW INCLUSIVE WE ARE BEING" panel.

I can't believe so many are outraged about what will assuredly be a nuanced discussion on the intricacies of Twilek lesbian love.

I don't disagree with you at all regarding the primarily lip-service nature of this panel. I'm with you.

However, I don't think the majority of people that will be outraged by the LGBTQ panel are upset because it doesn't genuinely support the community. It's because they see the existence of anything LGBTQ-related as a liberal/gay takeover.

I really don't want this to become a politics thread. I go to this board for entertainment and this thread is about Star Wars. Let's keep it there please.

This is all warm up for tomorrow anyway. Getting the lightweights out of the way early before the Title Bout. (Although I am interested in any tidbits from Filoni about Rebels and future animated shows)
