Today, when you shout from the rooftops, “WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE,” you’re talking about the fact that there are now TWO Star Wars movies with female leads, right? The Rogue One: A Story Wars Story trailer dropped earlier this morning, and though it’s only a short minute and a half preview of what we can expect when the first anthology theaters hits theaters later this year, we are. here. for. it. Felicity Jones as a take-no-prisoners Rebel who’s middle name might as well be “Rebel?” Yeah, sign us up, and keep this coming.
Little is still known about Jones’ character, Jyn Erso, but stack her next to Rey, and we are like “Yes, yes, more please, so much more, YAAAAAASSSSS.” Strong, kickbutt female heroines are all the rage right now, haven’t you heard? What a time to be alive, indeed.
We’re super stoked about this. Many others on the internet are also stoked about this. And then… there are those who are not so happy about this and have started complaining about the fact that there have been two back-to-back Star Wars movies with female protagonists, and they’re not a fan. Those people are jerks (Sorry. Not sorry).
Rather than highlight the tweets from the misogynists (again, sorry not sorry), we’re going to focus on the positive. Enough of this “Ugh, two ladies??” complaining in 140 characters or less. Here are some of the best reactions to ~those~ initial Star Wars reactions.
So for each negative comment you hear about the movie, remember haters are going to hate. And even Bad Father Han Solo is a big fan.
In case you’re wondering, Rogue One opens in 252 days on December 16th, 2016.
