Yes, already. And no, he is absolutely not overreacting.
See, Colbert – the character, at least – has been a huge fan of Star Wars since he was 13, when “Princess Leia’s firm, high buns stirred something in [him].” So naturally, Colbert was overjoyed to learn about the franchise’s next trilogy, especially when he learned that his pal J.J. Abrams would be directing.
Why, then, is Colbert complaining about Episode VII, which hasn’t even started shooting yet? Simple: Tuesday’s first table read photo, which pictured original trilogy stars mingling with new cast members like Adam Driver and Andy Serkis.
“Everything is wrong!” gripes Colbert in the following video. “Where’s the creature design? Every single character is humanoid, with two arms and two legs? And those love seats are clearly not canon!”
We feel your pain, Stephen – since when is there no color in a galaxy far, far away?! What a travesty!
