‘No Women’ In Fan Edit Of ‘The Last Jedi’ Video; Star Wars Actors See Red

Star Wars Day

Sexism has hit a new low. Most women-centred scenes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been edited out! According to Pedestrian, an anonymous user uploaded a film called “The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit” on Pirate Bay recently.

The user who uploaded it has been referred to as an “MRA,” or “Men’s Rights Activist”.

The 46-minute cut is surely the product of a deranged mind. The Star Wars series has always been offering badass women rebels as its leading characters.

Well, if that not enough, the MRA also named the video “The Chauvinist Cut” – you know just in case the intention wasn’t clear

So let me get this straight — now the new Star Wars movie has no lead character, since the main protagonist is a woman — so no Rey (Daisy Ridley)? Wonder how’d that be? So it’s only just storm troopers? It’s a simple yet powerful question: why?

Because a galaxy far, far away without Carrie Fisher and other powerful female figures, the franchise loses its identity

Answers: The user describes the cut as “basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff.”


While the fan tried to take feminists out of the powerful women-led franchise, its very existence proves why we need powerful women in ‘Star Wars’

Naturally, social media users and true Star Wars’ fans are fuming over the interference in the work. Star Wars actors are mocking the person behind the recut film.

Rian Johnson, the film’s writer and director, who joined in:


Mark Hamill, the Luke Skywalker and plays an older version of the character in the latest, tweeted:

Even John Boyega, who played Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as well as in The Last Jedi, couldn’t stop laughing

Fans reacted:





Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Episode VIII) is the continuation of the movie franchise that started in 1977. The series has a huge fan following and the last of its episode was released in 2015 with the name The Force Awakens.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi had the second-biggest opening weekend of all time in the US when it was released in December. It earned a whooping $450m in just three days and had the highest opening weekend of any film in 2017 in the UK.
