I can’t imagine a more insane statement to have endorsed by Disney directly, but here we are I guess. So sad.
According to BoundingIntoComics:
Krystina Arielle, who recently announced she will be the host of the newly announced Star Wars: The High Republic show, appears to take issues with white women and white people in general.
Arielle announced she would be hosting the Star Wars: The High Republic show on social media.
She wrote on Twitter, “I can officially scream ” I’m the host of the new official series Star Wars: The High Republic Show !!!!!! ”
Arielle was announced as the host of the new show when Star Wars and Lucasfilm officially launched their High Republic publishing initiative.
On StarWars.com they wrote, “The panel introduced host Krystina Arielle, who will be taking fans on a deep dive behind the scenes with creators, artists, and authors in the new series Star Wars The High Republic Show.”
In a live-stream accompanying the launch, Arielle provided a brief pitch about the show, “If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably got a lot of questions about this exciting new era of Star Wars. And luckily for you, I’m going to be sitting down with the creative forces behind the High Republic to get those answers.”
She added, “Each episode we’re going to take a deep dive into the mythology, characters, and stories we know you’re going to love from this exciting new series.”
“So, whether it’s the evolution of characters, minutiae of story, or how the High Republic will be brought to life on different platforms. Nothing will be left undiscovered by me and my rotating cast of panelists and celebrity guests,” Arielle concluded.
