In all seriousness, as people who can remember the impact of the original film, both culturally and cinematically, these current flicks can truly be considered to be little better than trash.

Simply out, the fans did deserve better than this.  You know what STAR WAS A NEW HOPE is?  Flash Gordon... but better.  That's it.  Nothing more, nothing less.

That Disney somehow managed to completely fuck that up is nothing short of amazing.  Speaking of Flash Gordon, while no one should call the Sam Jones version a 5 star film, it completely blows away the last 2 SW flicks.  How the fuck is that possible?

Simple. Because Flash Gordon had a STORY, a PROTAGONIST, and ANTAGONIST, etc.

Whenever I talk to a friend who LOVED SW7 and 8, I always ask them... 'Who is the main character?" You know, like LUKE in A New Hope? No one can answer that.

What are these words you're using?

Story?

Protagonist?

Is that what they taught you in your fancy schools?

Also, men and women ARE different. You can't just plug a female character into a male role and expect it to necessarily make sense... or assume it will not make LESS sense, at least. This is apparently something feminists like Kathleen cannot seem to grasp, either that or that refuse to grasp on ideological grounds that contradict observable reality. Maybe it's the difference between bending the natural tropes and shattering them. The latter could be fraught with peril for your story.
