    Someone Edited The Women Out Of "The Last Jedi" And No One's Having It

    *world-weary sigh*

    As we all know, the women of Star Wars: The Last Jedi played compelling and important roles in the movie. Returning characters General Leia Organa, Rey, Maz Kanata, Lieutenant Connix, and Captain Phasma all continued to prove central to the political turmoil in the far-away galaxy...

    ...and newcomers Rose Tico and Vice Admiral Holdo added new dimension and action to the landscape.

    So why, oh why, would anyone spend hours of their life making a 46-minute cut of The Last Jedi just to edit out all the women? Who fucking knows.

    ahhaahahahhahahahahahhahahhahahahahhahhhhhaaaahahahha

    First uploaded to Pirate Bay, the anonymous poster titled the project "The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit" and described the cut as "basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff." Other elements deleted from the film include:

    "Cut out most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas."

    "NO HALDO (sic)! She simply doesn’t exist. Her whole subplot doesn’t exist. The Kamikaze is carried out by Poe. ( = Poe dies.)"

    "Leia never scolds, questions nor demotes Poe. He is a respected and very skilled high-ranking member of the resistance."

    "When there’s a scene where a woman is cut in making some important statement that can be substituted by another statement by a guy, then she gets cut out. Works pretty well actually."

    "Wookie eats the Porg, or at least isn’t interrupted in trying to do so."

    "No green milk."

    Well, the dudes of The Last Jedi have responded. First, director Rian Johnson chimed in:

    Priscilla hits all the major points here but I’ll just add hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha… https://t.co/nPa8aim1Ws

    Then, Mark Hamill added his own take on the new film:

    Agreed. But let me add πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£β€¦ https://t.co/Tx9HwOIQF6

    And finally, John Boyega completed the chorus:

    Great points. Hope it’s okay to make a final point... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€¦ https://t.co/rOVv3yolZw

    Great, so that's settled. Moving on.
