Disney Insider WDW Pro has published the following at Pirates and Princesses:
Behind the scenes, large swaths of Kathleen Kennedy loyalists are messaging back and forth about their disdain for Luke Skywalker – a Caucasian male – being brought back in any valiant form. In fact, I’m even told that individuals at Lucasfilm have been reading articles here on Pirates and Princesses, as well as watching videos on Clownfish TV, and are now actively planning on how they can roadblock the retcon attempts of Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau to make Luke Skywalker a hero once more. The Hidalgos of Lucasfilm are not about to let Star Wars go back to what it once was.
Apparently the discussions are that in future creative meetings and story group sessions, these individuals plan to introduce ideas and narratives that would make a Luke redemption difficult. These wacko creatives are reportedly working in private messages to sabotage attempts by Filoni and Favreau via minor mediums such as graphic novels to push The Last Jedi narrative even harder. The goal is to canonize concepts in the coming years that would prevent the Luke and Grogu from being the future heroes that Favreau has planned. These people are incensed that the reaction to Luke Skywalker in the Mandalorian has been incredible. I sort of think their attempts to subvert Jon Favreau will fail, but we’ll see.
Now, if you can believe it, there is additionally a rumored movement from within Lucasfilm and parts of Disney that are pushing for the cancellation of any Caucasian male leads in any future feature length films for the foreseeable future.
Everything in this article should be considered rumor for right now. I’ve got my sources, but I have not personally seen the original content I’m reporting on. Still, be aware that there is most certainly a schism at Lucasfilm, and a certain segment that detests Luke Skywalker is well at work now to prevent the oncoming 180 as best as they can.
You can read more at Pirates and Princesses.
Given the open and public bigotry against white males that Lucasfilm notables routinely broadcast, I can definitely believe it. I can also believe it, because as I warned others, I’m aware of how Lucasfilm “creators” treat the Luke Skywalker character in all of its other media.
