Chinese state media has hit back against claims that the poster for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” used in mainland China deliberately leaves out or downplays characters of color.

Fans complained on Twitter earlier this week that British actor John Boyega, who plays Finn in the movie, had been shrunk on the Chinese poster. Other characters played by non-white characters, including Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron and Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata were missing entirely, as was Chewbacca the Wookiee.
