Star Wars “A New Force”

This series has undergone a remarkable evolution in the most recent years. Directed by J.J. Abrams, who continues the storyline after thirty years have passed in their galaxy. Star Wars: The Force Awakens delivered a decidedly different approach compared to previous movies. These changes were also the first of the series. The changes were having a female with a lead role, an African-American with a major role, and not racializing the comic relief shows how J.J. Abrams is challenging to present diversity in films. In comparison to modern Hollywood cinema, J.J. Abrams goes against the status quo by casting minorities and females in leading roles, which challenges rather than reinforces socially constructed norms of race and gender and expands our conventional understanding of the “hero” beyond the white, male actors who usually play those roles.
