Perhaps it's part of the redesign, see the Twi'lek siblings on The Mandalorian none of them have ear cones. It's weird that Hidalgo talks about those features since they don't seem to be present in the Disney Wars version of that species.Also the black dude twilek doesn't even look like one. Aside from being a manlet, he has eyebrows, a small forehead and he has ear cones despite males not having those but Hidalgo claims its a "playful choice", so a troon then?
I think he's still involved in Hollywood and works with Campea so I doubt that he wants to get blacklisted. He's already doing the impossible by criticizing Kurtzman Trek.I was following this until he started yammering on about how much he admires and respects Kathleen Kennedy.
