Absolutely. Lupita gets all the money from the toys. So of course she agreed to a cameo in the new movie!

It failed to gain a positive reaction so hard, they kinda forgot about the character.

Not really a debate is it, just cold facts: "Panjiva, a data company that tracks the giant shipping containers that arrive at U.S. ports, says 6,587 of them with Star Wars gear were shipped in the seven months leading up to The Last Jedi, but that’s down 47 percent from the seven months leading to Rogue One in 2016 and off 56  percent from the same time period ahead of The Force Awakens in 2015. Once the containers land in the U.S., these products go to Walmart, Amazon.com and every other retailer.

Panjiva research analyst Chris Rogers says that part of the problem is the recent Chapter 11 bankruptcy filed by Toys R Us, which not only  has the giant retailer ordering less product but has spooked the industry. Also, retailers are trying to gain a sense of “what the steady state” of Star Wars product is, as 2015’s The Force Awakens was the first, and therefore a curiosity, after a 10-year hiatus since Revenge of the Sith."

That might change once I get the stones to buy all the Black Series figures I have saved in my Amazon cart.
