Most of The Story Team For The Next Star Wars Film Is Female


One of Kathy Kennedy’s first jobs in film was as a camera operator at a local San Diego TV station. Years later, she found out that the reason she was hired was that the station was required to hire a woman for the role as part of a lawsuit.

Today, Kennedy is president of Lucasfilm, producer of the next installment in the Star Wars series, The Force Awakens. Still, she believes the challenges for women have remained much the same since the late 1970s.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's some real progress. After all, the series has one of the most celebrated female protagonists in sci-fi.

Does it really matter? Lol As long as it's good I don't care who the story team is.
