He then detailed the significance of Tran's casting, as the first female "Star Wars" lead who is not white. As one of the whitest and male-est franchises in any medium, Lucasfilm should be applauded for adding diversity to the film, but each time they've done so it's been met with an abhorrent backlash from a certain segment of its fandom. John Boyega endured it before "The Force Awakens," and the whole franchise was attacked when "Rogue One" featured a female lead.
"So just to teach these fanboys a lesson, we here at the 'Late Show' have partnered with Lucasfilm to create a new 'Star Wars' movie." He then premiered the exclusive new teaser trailer for it, completely with a "movie guy" voiceover to make sure we know just how serious this is.
Describing it as "the first 'Star Wars' movie "specifically designed to make racist, misogynist nerds mad," the announcer explains that Tran is the star now because "all of the cool male characters like Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron fell into a big hole after Rey cut their penises off."
