Imagine if the 1985 animated series Ewoks had featured Wicket going at it with Chief Chirpa. Well, that’s what kids are going to get in Star Wars Resistance, a kid’s cartoon about “space wizards with laser swords.”
Entertainment Weekly recently tweeted out the following:
The Star Wars universe is getting bigger.
This week, Star Wars Resistance executive producers Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge, and Brandon Auman confirmed something about Orka and Flix, the lovable duo manning the Office of Acquisitions in the Colossus: They’re in love and an official couple.
Fans, for the most part, gathered this, especially after the “Dangerous Business” episode in season 1 (shown in the video above) when the characters had to go visit Flix’s mother. The show leads confirmed it for the official Star Wars record, as heard in a recording of the show’s press day from the Coffee With Kenobi podcast’s Drew Taylor.
“I think it’s safe to say they’re an item, absolutely,” Ridge tells press. “They’re absolutely a gay couple and we’re proud of that. We love Flix and Orka.”
I think That Star Wars Girl made the best comment:
Well, because SJW brains are made entirely of genitalia. It’s all they can think of.
Thanks to That Star Wars Girl for the tip.
