J.J. Abrams: Gay Characters Coming To Star Wars

Meanwhile, there will never be a significant Asian character despite the fact that Jedi are based on samurai and Shaolin monks.

By Abrams’ logic, the sprawling Star Wars universe couldn’t possibly exist without a gay populaceآ—even if we haven’t seen a single character identified as gay thus far. "I would love it," he said. "To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world."
