Obviously what they tried to do is appeal to every demographic. Every demographic except white males and existing Star Wars fans, because they were planning on taking those people's money just based on them being fanboys and brand power.

Try to be appealing to everyone and you appeal no one.

Do you remember back then in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s when America was having a bigger share of entertainment industry. Everything from games, movies, are focusing on gameplay, story, etc instead of virtue signaling and forced diversity bullshit.

Then today you see American products are reduced in "entertainment value" because they are too focused in political correctness and virtue signaling, and have their global market shares reduced as a result. The competitors, despite technologically/human resource behind, are not adhering to the "western progressive" bullshit and as a result managed to start selling stuffs more and more. Look at Steam. More are more european/asian countries are able to sell video games, because American games quality has been declining.

My personal favorite is the "progressive" style of "purposely making females ugly" these days for the sake of political correctness. Like for fuck sake. We all know sex sells so doing this kind of shit don't really make sense. Even leftist PC shitty company like Naughty Dog don't do that kind of shit. I guess they are not "progressive" enough.

Slightly related to is the shift of Hollywood selling primarily to the domestic to targeting the global market. This is one of the reasons there are fewer comedies (and even less good ones) than in the 90s and 80s. Good comedies tend to use things that make sense in context to the culture it was targeting and may make none or little since to say an audience in China. Second is comedies tend not to translate well at times lessing the effect.

Same effect goes to complex storylines for other genres. As a result Hollywood produces more generic action movies because they sell better internationally and more of the comedic scenes in any movies end up being slapstick.

Good films have broad appeal. They should try that.

Ugly token Asian character sure was helpful alongside all the SJW bullshit from female writers who knew fuck all about Star Wars.

$100 says that's exactly the reason why they retconned the entire extended universe. The new series of movies could have been a renaissance, for the Star Wars franchise. Instead, SJWs did what they know how to do best: destroy things, with good intentions.

It would have been worse because then an attractive woman would be kissing a nigger. If this ugly Vietnamese cow smooching an ape is making them flee the theater in droves just image their reaction if an attractive Chinese girl was forced to kiss the coon.

Ugly girls just don't sell in less progressive societies. Clearly they are targeting the progressive turds, otherwise they'll go for the pretty ones.

No what really helped was giving token Asian woman a dindu love interest. East Asians don't fuck around and put up with miscegenation.

Pandering is a skill. You need someone the target likes looking at, and even better if they can act.

Hasbro gets it.

FOX gets it.

Even CBS gets it.

Disney doesn't get it.

It's almost like they are not after profit because globalist bankers donations already makes the Disney full.

Only way to deal with leftist is to purge them. We put up with them long enough, now they are shoving their bullshit politics down on normies throat.

I never support genocide on anyone based on their identity, but killing leftards seem like the right thing to do. Because eventually at this rate, human race would be so mentally retarded from libtardation that it will be too easy for the Aliens to genocide us. Because eventually the scientists, the generals, the nation leaders are not going to be the most competent, but are the ones with the most "minority tags."

Yeah. The other piece is if the story was actually good and the characters were well written and well acted it would offset it. I don't like the "force is female" pandering bullshit. But if they had honestly made a good movie it would not have mattered if the main character was a chick or not.

I love the reasons these journalists come up with, all avoiding the small elephant herd in the room. "It's bad timing, it's colour scheme is too drab, the fighting is dull to the Chinese (ie: you gotta be high-IQ to like Star Wars the Last SJW, these chinks are too low-brow to get it)". Emperor's new clothes, man. Ask a 6 year old. Ask anyone who doesn't have a million dollars, their entire political belief structure, or their pride on the line....
How are these content producers so deluded .. isn't it their job to know what people want and to give it to them ? Can I have their job ?

Nope.

Their job is to make you vote left.

They only they give you what you want every now and then in order to earn money, which is then immediately invested to make you vote left.

Not money, your enslavement is their primary goal. Money is just a tool.

They stopped doing that in favor of shoving politics down people's throats when all they wanted was entertainment.

To appeal cross-culturally you need archetypes and fiction that reflects a hyper-real depiction of the human condition. Pink-haired feminist SJW tripe explicitly tries to deconstruct those things.

Or who could forget his classic? The Hero with a Thousand Pronouns. I hear George Lucas used it to write the character of Xuke Skywheelchair (xis/xir/xim).
