Rian Johnson & Mark Hamill Mercilessly Mock All-Male Edit Of ‘The Last Jedi’

The 46 minute edit of The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit, removing all reference to female characters [why, just why?], is causing somewhat of stir with some of the male cast and crew giving us their 2 cents and mercilessly mocking the edit — including Rian Johnson & Mark Hamill….

This is what Vanity Fair has to say on the subject: –

Thanks to the amplification of social media, extreme fan reactions to pop culture is getting more attention than ever. Some might say the out-sized fan reactions are partially created by the age of digital fandom which rewards extreme takes with viral fame. Even negative attention is attention, right? In other words, it may be worth throwing your TV off the balcony in disgust over a football game for your fifteen minutes of internet glory. This trend is particularly pernicious in the realm of sci-fi/fantasy fandom where we’ve seen “angry” and “disappointed” fans digitally clamor for a Zack Snyder cut of The Justice League that simply doesn’t exist, disturbingly harass and dox the stars of the 2016 Ghostbusters remake, petition for Disney to “strike” the divisive [The] Last Jedi from the Star Wars canon, and, most recently, take the time to re-cut the movie into a “*The Last Jedi*: De-Feminized Fanedit” which omits most of the women from the 165-minute film. The result is an incomprehensible 46-minute “movie” that has to be a joke and, even if it’s not, has director Rian Johnson and his male stars are howling with laughter.
