Star Wars Director Wants to ‘Make Men Uncomfortable.’


Activist director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who has been put in charge of the upcoming unwanted Rey Star Wars movie, has said she wants to “make men uncomfortable.” And the predominantly male Star Wars audience is reacting as you would expect. Why Disney would double and triple down on baiting fans given the state of the franchise is baffling. Put a chick in it, make her gay, and make it lame.

Additional Context:
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, a Canadian-Pakistani filmmaker, has been selected to direct an upcoming “Star Wars” movie focusing on Daisy Ridley’s character, Rey. The controversy surrounding Obaid-Chinoy stems from comments she made during a 2015 interview at the Women in the World Summit in New York City. In this interview, she stated, “I like to make men uncomfortable. I enjoy making men uncomfortable.”

These comments have resurfaced and garnered attention in light of her recent appointment as the director of the new “Star Wars” film, scheduled to be released in 2026. The film is set to continue the story of Rey Skywalker, a key figure in the recent “Star Wars” sequel trilogy. Obaid-Chinoy’s recent comments about the significance of a woman shaping the story in the “Star Wars” universe have also contributed to the debate. She expressed excitement about directing the next “Star Wars” movie and bringing Daisy Ridley back to the galaxy, emphasizing the need for more heroic figures and stating that the heroes seen on screen are rooted in real-life heroes who have overcome oppressive empires and battled impossible odds.

The selection of Obaid-Chinoy, who is the first woman and first person of color to direct a “Star Wars” feature film, has been met with mixed reactions. Some commentators and “Star Wars” fans have criticized what they perceive as a feminist agenda influencing the direction of the franchise.
