The Star Wars universe will have its first openly gay character: Moff Mors, an imperial imperial leader who strives to avoid the failure of the empire in the book ‘Star Wars: Lords of the Sith’.
The news was revealed by Shelly Shapiro, who works at the publisher responsible for the books in the series. “We have to recognize that there is a lot of diversity in human beings,” he explains.
The publisher classified the inclusion of the first LGBT character in the official Star Wars canon as ‘perfectly natural’, which unites all the stories based on the characters including films, books, comic books and games.
Lords Of The Sith will be released on April 28.
