Fans Furious as Disney's 'Star Wars' Officially Jumps the Shark with Lesbian Witches Conceiving Babies in New Show

Editor’s Note: Our readers responded strongly to this story when it originally ran; we’re reposting it here in case you missed it.

After two decades of terrible decisions regarding the “Star Wars” franchise, from Jar-Jar Binks and midi-chlorians to Palpatine somehow returning, the franchise has, for many fans, finally jumped the shark.

Its newest show, “The Acolyte,” already shot itself in the foot when its creator, Leslye Headland, proclaimed it would be the “gayest” version of “Star Wars” yet, alienating fans who are thoroughly fed up with the franchise’s devotion to leftist activism.

The first two episodes were bad enough for fans, with the strong female protagonist played by “non-binary” actress Amandla Stenberg and with the emphasis on “power” rather than good and evil.

Yet with the release of the third episode, the series not only massively retconned an integral piece of “Star Wars” lore but completely devolved into the most absurd display of woke pandering this side of Dylan Mulvaney peddling Bud Light.

The entertainment site Bounding Into Comics offered readers an essential summary of the episode’s greatest sin: namely, declaring that the protagonists, twins Mae and Osha, were created by a Force-sensitive witch manipulating the “universal life energy.”

Really.

The 2005 film “Revenge of the Sith,” the last in the much-maligned prequel trilogy, established that only one person had ever succeeded in this endeavor.

And it was not the lesbian witch Mother Aniseya but the legendary Sith Lord Darth Plagueis the Wise.

Did Disney ruin "Star Wars"?

As Chancellor Palpatine told Anakin Skywalker, Plagueis was “so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life.”

Though implied in the film, the “Expanded Universe” novels later confirmed that Plagueis was most likely responsible for Anakin’s conception.

While the “Star Wars” creative team at Disney has previously declared the “Expanded Universe” no longer canon, one would think it would at least respect lore previously established in the films, if not the books.

Apparently, though, the championing of woke intersectional causes trumped any kind of internal creative consistency.

And fans, as with most iterations of modern “Star Wars,” were not thrilled — but given the egregious nature of this particular transgression, they were certainly much less thrilled than usual.

YouTube film critic Nerdrotic shared one of the cringiest scenes from this latest disaster, with the caption, “This is Disney Star Wars.”

In this clip, the lesbian witches chant, “The power of one! The power of two! The power of many!” while waving their arms in the manner of little girls pretending to cast a spell, in a ritual that, somehow, gave two of the witches twin girls.

The comments in response to this video were quite savage, starting with Chase Geiser, who said, “Communist trash.”

Another user commented that “Star Wars has officially jumped the shark,” with another echoing the sentiment: “This doesn’t look like Star Wars. It looks like a bunch of Leftists putting a blood curse on Donald Trump.”

Even Elon Musk got in on the action, with a few simple, yet apt, emojis.

Most “Star Wars” fans have watched the woke transformation of their formerly beloved franchise with mournful resignation for years now.

But this absurd episode, with its blatant disregard for established lore, seemed to be the last straw for many.

Fans can only stay loyal for so long as they watch talentless, intersectional hacks desecrate their most cherished films and stories.

Eventually, those hacks will put something on screen so absurd and so disrespectful to the fan base and previous installments that fans will abandon the franchise altogether.

It happened when the beloved British sci-fi series “Doctor Who” cast a female doctor, and it happened when the Marvel Cinematic Universe decided to replace beloved characters with dull, insufferable feminists.

After enduring more terrible media than any fan base should have to suffer, lesbian witches who magically conceive babies seem to be what’s made them snap.

It would be funnier if it weren’t so depressing.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
