In the vast expanse of the Star Wars universe, a new wave of "wokeness" is making its presence felt, illuminating the landscape of American entertainment.

This shift is evident in the franchise's recent children's cartoon series.

The Star Wars saga, which began in the late 1970s, initially followed a traditional narrative. Three men embarked on a mission to rescue a princess from a malevolent warlord, aided by two robots and a towering creature. This classic tale of good versus evil unfolded against a backdrop of alien worlds and the infinite cosmos.

However, the narrative landscape of Star Wars has undergone a significant transformation since Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012. The new management, under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, announced a shift in the franchise's direction, with the declaration that "The force is female." This statement was a departure from the franchise's past, which had predominantly catered to a male audience. Furthermore, one of the first writers hired post-acquisition suggested that the Empire represented white supremacy. The original film's heroes were all Caucasian, a trend that seemed unlikely to continue.

The Disney+ streaming platform's new animated series, "Star Wars: Tales of the Empire," introduces a Jedi Knight who identifies as "nonbinary," using "they/them" pronouns. This concept, which suggests that the individual identifies as neither male nor female, is a significant departure from traditional gender norms.

Interestingly, the Star Wars universe, which is set "a long time ago," has evolved to reflect contemporary societal shifts. The franchise's narrative timeline appears to have coincided with the emergence of nonbinary identities in modern America.

However, this development raises questions about the continuity of the Star Wars universe. The original and prequel trilogies only featured male and female characters, while "Tales of the Empire," set between these trilogies, introduces nonbinary characters. This suggests a brief period of gender diversity, followed by a return to binary gender norms.

The introduction of nonbinary characters is not a first for the franchise. In 2021, the comic book "Star Wars: The High Republic" featured Terec and Ceret, characters identified by Lucasfilm as "trans nonbinary Jedi." This raises further questions about the concept of being both transgender, implying a transition between sexes, and nonbinary, suggesting an absence of gender.

In promoting the comic, Disney/Lucasfilm posted online: "In honor of #TransDayOfVisibility we're proud to unveil an exclusive cover highlighting Terec and Ceret... We support trans lives and we are passionate and committed to broadening our representation in a galaxy far far way #TDOV."

Disney's approach to the Star Wars franchise reflects broader societal trends, including the recognition of more than two sexes by the World Health Organization, the introduction of gender 'X' passports, and the emergence of 'trigender' identities.

"Tales of the Empire" presents a unique blend of 'wokeness' and empathy. The nonbinary Jedi's adversaries express their intent to kill the character, yet they respect the character's pronouns, even when out of earshot. This reflects a modern, and seemingly galactic, moral code where respect for identity surpasses the value of life itself.

The force of "wokeness" is a formidable one, and it appears to be reshaping the Star Wars universe.
