“Star Wars: Rogue One” Writers Join Rebellion Against Trump

They’re sticking to the theme of the upcoming film and pinning it to the symbol for the rebel alliance.

Weitz first came up with the idea after praising an article by Brett White at Comic Book Resources that connects the film to the current US political climate.

Weitz’s co-writer Gary Whitta was quick to join in.

And together, they made a case for why the heroes of the Star Wars would oppose the election of someone like Trump.

Please note that the Empire is a white supremacist (human) organization
