It is sad that Carrie Fisher passed away. Princess Leia was one of the great characters of the original Star Wars Trilogy. In the sequel The Force Awakens we find that she and Han Solo are no longer together, which makes everybody sad. Has Solo is still being Han Solo, while she is this general with a depressing demeanor. It so happens that the next Star Wars movie has already been filmed, one with her playing a prominent role as the general. So what will they do? Will they refilm parts of it to give her a heroic death? Will they use a CGI version of her to do so? Perhaps the producers will feel that her character deserves to die for past sins; that is, being too feminine at times (not all the time) in the original Trilogy.
Anyway that you look at it, the old characters are dying off. Since Luke is white and male, he is probably next. Chewbacca is lucky that he has brown fur, though he is male. So now we have Darth Emo (white male) against a bunch of non-white and/or non-male characters. So the war on white men continues. Will this conflict bring balance to the Force? Probably not, as there are lots more movies that can be made if it does not.
