Kudos to film director Victoria Mahoney, who was introduced this week as the first ever Black woman director for the Star Wars franchise. Mahoney will be the second unit director, making her responsible for supplementary footage including stunts. May the force be with you, Victoria.

As if we needed another reason to be excited for the next @StarWars film, now we get the first Black woman director! May the force be with you, @VictoriaMahoney. #genderavenger #avengeroftheweek https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/avenger-of-the-week-victoria-mahoney
