'The Late Show' host announced the collaboration with Lucas Films as, “the first 'Star Wars' film specifically designed to make racist, misogynist nerds mad.”
Colbert continued to say, “They attacked this beautiful, young actress for her ethnicity, her appearance, and her sex,” he said. “And may I remind you, Kelly Marie Tran is the first lead woman in a Star Wars movie who is not white. So, just to teach these fanboys a lesson, we here at 'The Late Show' have partnered with Lucasfilm to create a new 'Star Wars' movie.”
The film trailer is filled with feminist notions, including the fact that Tran is now the leading actor and Chewbacca is actually a woman.
