Looking at both pics I have to wonder if it was simply the company's way of showing yes Han and the Millennium Falcon and yes we have lasers in this film. I wonder just how big is the star wars fandom in China? This would be a bad marketing move in America since everyone pc over here but China I don't know. Now if more materials come out the same way then I be willing to say yes but from one poster i'm leaning towards the company that put this out wanted to show more lasers and the more identifiable characters "Han solo and the Millennium Falcon"
Just my 2 cents

When it comes to a non-white person, everything is racist. do the same to a white person and nobody cares.

A while back someone mentioned that Asians LOVE white people. Is that even true anymore?

The biggest problem here is that they forgot Chewbacca.

Seems like you like going off "half-cocked". How about read a little before you go down the
road of wishing ill on others. Its the least you can do..

I mean they made other alterations to other characters on the poster as well. I don't see anything wrong with this; guess I'm just a big fat racist. It's not going to change the movie is it?

Yes. It is likely overblown. The evidence provided isn't convincing enough to accuse of anything. Given new and better evidence, I could be convinced otherwise on the matter.

Just because racism exists doesn't make every little thing automatically racist worthy of flailing arms. You are using the fact that racism exists to assume that such a course of action was 'obviously' racist.

That's where people often fuck it up.




Agreed. Although it is possible that this was done due to racial preferences, it is far too soon to jump to that conclusion.

That's like a stranger telling you, "My car wouldn't start this morning." and replying with, "It's out of gas." without any extra information, denying any other possibilities. Even if it's a possibility that the car is out of gas, even if you somehow knew the stranger was bad about forgetting to fill up, even then you could not deny other possibilitiesn

Cool, another clickbait non issue for people to get hysterical over.

This sort of stuff is being generated by the minute these days, I swear.

Dude, what an idiotic comment. Do you know how brutal those war crimes were? And how many millions upon millions suffered horribly? You know that some of the shitty things ISIS is doing right now still pale in comparison to what Japan did to people during the war? Stupid comment...

Anyway...

Don't forget: I said ALL Asian countries are editing the poster - this is normal for whenever a movie features a black character. Japan themselves have edited their poster, and if you watch the Japanese trailer for SW:Force Awakens, they edit out the black guy a LOT from that as well.

Asia hates black people with a passion, this is just normal there. It shouldn't surprise anyone that this is normal there. Asia's proud of its racism and they are most certainly not afraid to show it.



Asians don't hate blacks as much as white people do, tbh. And Asians aren't even racist towards black people...

Wasn't that 12 years a slave poster thing...in Italy? Not Asia...

I really think you're jumping the gun here.



Nope, the 12 Years a Slave thing was also in Asia as well (though you're absolutely right on Italy and other countries doing the same thing).

And well...if anyone is jumping the gun, it's you considering you have been quick to point out Chewbacca and a a fighter plane missing in the poster and trying to saying shrinking a black character is the same thing. Like...do you not know of the racial issues and colorism in Asia? Or are you just ignoring and downplaying them? Perhaps you should read up a bit more before posting and trying to act like it isn't what it actually is.

: /




So no one's allowed to shrink any African American actor because it's going to be racist? So there's this poster, and they obviously delete and shrink /other/ characters too, but OH MY GOSH they shrunk the black guy /too/, so it's racist? You're saying if a character is black, they should be immune to deletion?!
