Colin Hanks — actor, director, brother of rapper Chet Haze and son of America’s Sweetheart Tom Hanks — is a big Star Wars fan, but he’s not a big fan of the lack of female characters. He’s also not a fan of what results from that: few (if any) female-oriented toys for his four-year-old daughter.
Hanks posted on Instagram about the experience of showing his young daughter her first Star Wars film. She loved it — but immediately noticed the lack of female representation. “It’s so tiring watching these movies. It’s always boys, boys, boys and there’s only one girl.”

Hanks ended his message on a positive note: “The only good to come from this is that, once again, my daughter makes me look at the world in a whole new light.”
