Disney+ ‘Star Wars’ Series Introduces ‘Nonbinary’ Character Using ‘They/Them’ Pronouns

The new Disney+ Star Wars animated series “Tales of the Empire” just introduced a nonbinary character.

Libs of TikTok shared the clip in question on X. “New Star Wars show on Disney+ ‘Tales of the Empire’ features a non-binary character that uses they/them pronouns,” the caption says. “Parents, make sure you know what your kids are watching! They’re after your kids.”

The clip is from episode five of the series, which includes six shorts. It introduces a character about to surrender to an Inquisitor (a character who hunts Jedi) before another Inquisitor, The Fourth Sister, strikes the Jedi down with a lightsaber.

“They’re still alive,” the Inquisitor says while checking the character’s heartbeat. “We need to get them to the ship. We can save them.”

The Fourth Sister replies, “Forget it. Let them die. It’s not worth the trouble.”

“They were about to surrender,” the Inquisitor argues.

The “Star Wars” franchise has dabbled in radical left-wing gender theory before. Director J.J. Abrams bragged in 2019 that the film “Rise of Skywalker” would include a kiss between two women.

“In the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film,” Abrams told Variety at the time. “I will say I’m giving away nothing about what happens in the movie. But I did just say what I just said.”


In reality, the quick kiss accounted for less than one second of screen time.

Disney also added two “trans and non-binary” Jedi Knights on the cover for Marvel’s “Star Wars: The High Republic” comic series in 2021.

“In honor of #TransDayofVisibility we’re proud to unveil and exclusive cover highlighting Terec and Ceret, trans non-binary Jedi, currently featured in Marvel’s The High Republic comic,” the official Star Wars Instagram account wrote in its image caption. “We support trans lives and we are passionate and committed to broadening our representation in a galaxy far far [a]way.”
