An article in the San Jose Mercury #News mentioned that director JJ Abrams said a gay character may soon be appearing in a distant galaxy.
"It seems insanely narrow minded to say that there wouldn't be a homosexual character in that world," Abrams said.
Hamill said he has received mail from bullied fans who feared revealing their sexuality. In a Time Magazine article, The Sun asked Mark Hamill if Luke Skywalker was gay. Actor Mark Hamill replied, “If you think Luke is gay, of course he is. You should not be ashamed of it. Judge Luke by his character, not by who he loves.”
Luke Skywalker’s sexuality is questionable since he only hung out with an old guy with a light saber, a green puppet, and two droids. I would call it an interesting circle of friends. Although it’s unclear of why a gay Luke Skywalker is necessary, fans are familiar with the sexual insinuations sprinkled throughout the three original Star Wars movies.
The most memorable Star Wars quotes
Here are a few memorable examples proving that Director George Lucas had a great sense of humor:
- "Get in there you big furry oaf, I don't care what you smell!"
- "Luke, at that speed do you think you'll be able to pull out in time?"
- "You've got something jammed in here real good."
- "You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought."
- "Look at the size of that thing!"
- "Size matters not. Judge me by my size, do you?"
- "Hurry up, golden-rod..."
- "I never knew I had it in me."
- “Rise, my friend."
- "I thought that hairy beast would be the end of me."
So if not Luke Skywalker, who else might be gay? Could it be Chewbacca? A gay Wookie? Is it even conceivable? If droids were gay, most Star Wars fans would go with C-3PO. But he’s not human, so it wouldn’t be him. What about Boba Fett? A gay clone bounty hunter? The idea is believable. Since he’s a clone, who knows what he prefers sexually?
Instead of offering a gay character, Abrams could introduce a new character in the next movie. Could we also see a gay character in Star Trek? Since Abrams is also the director of the new Star Trek movies, he may decide to introduce a gay character to the Trekkies. Regardless, JJ Abrams is such a brilliant director that he can weave a gay storyline into his next movie with little fanfare. #Celebrities #Buzz
