I feel that this edit was due to Disney trying to open the Star Wars demographic to feminists. To appeal to a mass audience female roles were added in the same manner Jar Jar Binks character was added to make the film less depressing. A bunch of corporate suits sat down at a meeting to discuss how to sell Star Wars to a new generation, not write a good story in an attempt to make another classic film. This edit is what happens when fans grow up with a series that turns into a cash cow while disregarding the elements that made it appealing in the first place.

- I haven't seen it and don't want to
- I didn't know about it until now
- Live long and prosper (Star Trek!)
