KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The new film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" features a female villain for the first time in the history of the Stars Wars franchise. FOX 4 sat down with Gwendoline Christie to chat about her role and how she thinks woman are going to be able to relate to her character.
"People want it," Christie says. "People want to see diversity in their entertainment. They want to see different kinds of representations of men and women, rather than the ones that we’ve had so far. People want to see something different. And so, when you see a fan response like that, it’s very , very encouraging. And you realize that, that is where that is where the world is, and that is what they want to see on their screen."
FOX 4 also had the opportunity to speak with Oscar Isaac who reflected on the cultural impact of the mega franchise.
"It's not just a movie, it's culture," Isacc said.
