'De-Feminised' Star Wars: Men's Rights activist creates 45-minute cut of The Last Jedi

  'De-Feminised' Star Wars: Men's Rights activist creates 45-minute cut of The Last Jedi Angered by the the existence of strong female characters in Star Wars, one so-called fan has decided to create his own male-empowering cut of LucasFilm's latest sci-fi adventure The Last Jedi. As you might guess, it's a complete mess. The anonymous user cut down a pirated version of the film and uploaded it to a widely-banned torrent-sharing site where he describes it as the "De-Feminized Fanedit" and, to make the point entirely clear, "The Chauvinist Cut". "Basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff," reads a description. The 46-minute cut doesn't remove every female character from writer-director Rian Johnson's film entirely, but does go out of its way to undermine the ones that remain and render them secondary to the film's male heroes and villains. It also removes, and in its own view 'rectifies' some of the plot developments in the sequel that angered a vocal minority of fans. A detailed description of all the major changes made speaks volumes. Warning: Spoilers for The Last Jedi follow. Luke Skywalker's arc is cut down so there's no evidence of him being "whiny" or "reluctant", the character of Vice Admiral Holdo (misspelled 'Haldo') is cut completely, the entire Canto Bight casino sequence is cut and there's "no superpowered Rey".

But the questions about how much of Trevorrow's plot will stay in the movie will only increase after a new revelation from "Saturday Night Live" alum Bobby Moynihan.

The comic was on Collider's "Jedi Council Podcast" and shared a moment he witnessed between Trevorrow and Ridley:

“I was in 'The Book of Henry,' the movie that Colin Trevorrow directed, and we talked about ["Star Wars"] a great deal. We’re both big fans, one of the reasons why I think he put me in the movie was because we hit it off talking about that,” Moynihan said. “I introduced him to Daisy Ridley at the 'SNL' after-party, it was the first time they had met. I saw a moment where she said, ‘What happens to me?’ And he said, ‘Do you want to do this now?’ And she said, ‘Yeah,’ and they went off into a corner of the bar and he whispered it into her ear and she started crying.”

“I was like, I’m witnessing ‘Star Wars’ history right now," Moynihan continued on the podcast. "I remember being so amazed and feeling so wonderful and so happy for Colin because he’s such a fan. I haven’t spoken to him since the news came out that he’s not doing it, but it kills me because I would’ve loved to see what he would have done with it because he was very passionate about it.”

Now we wait to see if Trevorrow, Ridley, or Abrams will reveal if Rey's fate that made Ridley cry is still in the movie.
