    Is Star Wars really as woke as everyone is saying now?

    I haven't followed the franchise in a long time. I liked the first 3 movies, the other 3 that came out in the early 2000s were okay but I haven't seen anything since. I see a lot of complaints that the latest movies and shows have gone woke with the exception of that one with Baby Yoda, I can't remember the name of the show. How bad has the franchise slipped into wokeness?

    I mean, they're bad and very unenjoyable to watch. I would say on the list of issues coming from the new Star Wars films, being "woke" doesn't even make the top 100.

    Being woke certainly isn't doing Star Wars any favors (Which isn't surprising when you learn most of the folks doing work for the Star Wars film and other related media seem to consist of soy boys or crazy cat ladies), I do feel that people fixate on that aspect too much when it has a lot of other baffling idiocy. Did you know there's a Star Wars book who decided that a fart joke would be oh so hilarious since the author didn't apparently learn how people hated the "Jar Jar steps in shit" joke from the Phantom Menace?

    Oh, and let's get into the High Republic, Disney's new "We want our own version of The Old Republic" series of books and comics. Aside from the character descriptions show that none of the characters have any discernable personalities whatsoever but there's one character...actually, I wouldn't even call it a character but the character is a literal rock. I wish I was joking.



    It makes me wish that I was a fly on the wall to see all the stupid shit that the writers come up with or how they think anyone would even react slightly positive to it. I've said this before and I'll say it again; the only good Star Wars thing to come out of Disney was the Jedi Fallen order game which is a pleasant surprise. Other than that, it's all just corporate, lowest common denominator shit.

    Not really, the whole "woke" thing was more Disney captializing on social media trends, characters like Phasma who were talked up as strong feminists icons received barely any screen time before being killed off unceremoniously. The new Star Wars trilogy is a case study on how NOT to handle a trilogy, and how Abrams's films are great at drawing you in with their slick presentation, but when you scratch the surface there's nothing underneath.

    Haven't cared about Star Wars since I was a kid. The new stuff certainly sounds pretty bad, as if they've run out of ideas. It's a broader problem with Hollywood as a whole these days. I'm probably the #1 worst person to comment on this because of my stance on movies in general. If they keep selling tickets then I suppose they will keep going in this direction. I agree with Example that it sounds like less of a wokeness problem and more like a lack of interesting ideas.

    I may have said this before, but my experience with Star Wars is limited to Episode I and the games Super Star Wars and Knights of the Old Republic.

    Despite the previous recommendations of the classic films and sometimes much more, I am going to leave it at that. KotOR was brilliant but I really have no interest in the franchise whatsoever. I won't get into Doctor Who because of how cringy it reportedly became. I don't like an unfinished story so why waste my time with a universe that I'll eventually hate?

    I guess the only two franchises I care about with "star" in their names are Battlestar Galactica and... duh.

    Of the new trilogy, I've only watched "Force Awakens" and I really disliked it, so i haven't watched any of the ones they put out after. And it seems that was good from the general reactions the newest Trilogy and spin offs got.
    So i can't really say if they're "woke".
