The first trailer of Star Wars Episode 9 dropped yesterday and contained a shocking twist at the end – the voice of Israel Folau laughing at homosexuals. Needing a new villain after Rian Johnson killed off Supreme Leader Snoke in Episode 8, J.J. Abrams has tapped into the latest and hottest bad guy around – Israel Folau.
“Let’s be honest, Rian Johnson really shit the bed with Episode 8,” said J.J. Abrams. “Killing off Snoke meant there was no more bad guy, so I had to search far and wide to find someone to top him and what do you know? Just before the trailer drops Israel comes out and says all that crazy stuff so I just grabbed a mic and caught the magic while it happened.”
Rather than being embarrassed, it turns out Israel is totally up for the role. “Having a platform to spread my views is really important to me – more important than running around a field with solicitors and private school boy bankers. Big thanks to the two ‘J’s’ for making this happen – Jesus and J.J.”
While Israel can’t give too much away, he did hint that his character will try to lure Rey to his way of thinking by sprouting a lot of homophobic remarks and wild conspiracy theories about gay frogs.
