Why did they go with such a young woman for the voice of a 1000 year old character?

It sounded like she couldn't decide whether to use her normal voice or try to sound forcedly old. Terrible casting decision when they could've used pretty much any old actress.

when will the misogyny end?

My name is Bolo Santosi. I am the leader of the revolutionary army known as The Reapers. Our goal is for the people of Panau to break the chains of oppression and rise up as one.

Just watched this last night and I thought the same thing. This character was awful, a CGI excuse to make use of Lupita Ngoynonyo or wtf her name is.

Why the fuck did she need to be 1,000 years old?

Oh, because Yoda was 900 and everything in TFA is just a copy but BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER PACED AND MORE DIVERSE than the OT.

My name is Rags Santos. I am known as the Grim Reaper Revolutionary Army leaders. We are drawn to people like that looks like a stand-up ... and break the chains of oppression.

They thought the age would add credibility. I dunno, her role was so small literally anyone could've been her. Like Ahsoka lel

Explain this meme.

Good question.

For another time :^)
>>
>>64553829
well I can't speak for the other guy but I just sort of thought she sounded like Bolo Santosi from Just Cause 2
>>
>>64553822

Even if she was "only" 120 years old it would be enough credibility.

I agree with the other poster, it's obvious that they just made her older because they wanted to one-up yoda. Death star? Well our doomsday device is FIVE TIMES LARGER AND CAN HIT 5 PLANETS AT ONCE.

The fact that she is older than yoda actually hinders her credibility. Why didn't she train in the force with the jedi if she is actually force-sensitive and was around for 1000 years? I mean, what else to do? I mean euugh, fuck, the inconsistencies just keep on piling up.

The more I think about this movie the more try-hard and pandering it seems. Even the John Williams score was generic and uninspired, which is a feat for star wars.

I had no idea who she was, what she was, what she was supposed to be doing other than running some waterhole, and apparently shes some force knower and has lukes light saber

like, am I supposed to be impressed by her wisdom or some shit?

JJ is a fucking idiot

This Magic Negro is one of many bad points in this rehash script

The entire thing made no sense, thematically and pacing wise either.
It was just a bunch of thrown together shit that reminded people of ANH.

I hope we finally see her using her tiny yellow lightsaber and go town with it.

>hire a talented young, Oscar-winning actress for your movie
>instead of having her appear onscreen, get her to play an ugly CGI old woman alien (despite her having no experience playing CGI creatures)
>hire a nobody whose most notable role was playing a corpse on TV
>make her the main character
Bravo JJ

Stop pushing this meme. It's a cartoon CGI alien

She felt like one of those talking animal characters in disney movies with a celebrity voice actress.

HAAAAAN SOOOOOLOOO! *holds up lightsaber*

My name is Maz Kanata, but you can call me "Chewbacca's girlfriend". As you can see, I'm pretty much blind. That's why I came here, because I got lost. I'm over 1000 years old (Mature for my age though! Haha!) and I like to hand out legendary Jedi weapons to random people (I'm really wise, so deal with it).

In my spare time I give advice to protagonists from desert planets with my friend Yoda. He's wise too, of course. But I'd like to meet other wise, ancient beings. Like they say: The more, the merrier!

Anyways, if someone could tell me the way to the Outer Rim, that would be nice.

*harbours First Order spies* <--- Me being wise again. O_O

So long and may the force be with you,

The Annoying Orange
