With the Kathleen Kennedy driven Disney Star Wars movies a pattern has emerged. Strong female characters are the new heroes. In fact, they are born great, unlike previous generations of male heroes who were forged through struggle and effort. Naturally enough, there are lots of new action toys built around these characters and their equipment. This is the kind of thing that Disney does, and in thes case, Disney did.
So I have an idea. Now that all of the old characters have been killed off (“let it die”), there should be new characters. To bring balance to the Farce, the new male characters should be princes (not like “The Artist”, the one who ODed a few years ago, real princes), or at least prince like characters. They each would have in inordinately large package, There would be many outfits available for sale, with lots of fashion accessories available also. Of course, these accessories will not include anything like a blaster; those are reserved for the new female heroes.
Appealing to parents with ad campaigns suggesting that such Disney Star Wars Prince toys were the wave of the future for boys will get them off the shelves and into boys hands. After all, what fine parent would not want to operate in the new culturally correct manner? Disney makes money.
What could go wrong?
