It's hard to pretend it's truly all-inclusive entertainment when it's a bunch of straight white dudes hanging out and saving the day.

Exactly. Well said. It's the idea that when a team has members each bringing something different and unique to the table, it can become greater than the sum of its parts because of those differences. The same kind of imagery depicts a diverse band of rebels vs. the uniform, sterile Empire in Star Wars.
