By going with "slight element of sexism", you are at least acknowledging that the majority, or at least another element, are experiencing concerns are nothing at all to do with sexism. Just because she would have known George's mind and intentions, doesn't mean that she has to, or intends to, follow his lead. She created the Lucasfilm Story Group, to decide the direction of the Saga (I haven't followed this at all, so any accuracy is purely coincidental), and Lucas is not even on board as a consultant. That says to you that she intends to follow any of his story ideas beyond the Original Trilogy? Hey, maybe they were crap? Maybe she has a reason for taking a different route. On a slightly different matter, back when I was criticising TFA for the amount of questions that it raised, and left hanging, staunch TFA defenders insisted they would all be answered in the "next film". I didn't see why they thought the next guy was going to limit his own creativity in order to address all the issues that the incumbent left behind. That is a bit unfair. And turns out, that is almost exactly what happened. I did more of an update on the Knights of Ren than Rian did! Nothing confirmed on Rey's special parentage; no background data on Snoke. I enjoyed TLJ more than TFA. It might have not been helpful to Lucas' vision, but I feel that TFA had already damaged it to **** in the first place. I do appreciate Kathleen for saving Rogue One from being the dumpster fire that I was sure Gareth Edwards would have turned out if left to his own devices.
