“Every generation has a legend.”
The power of the force is stronger than ever, and the heroes of the Star Wars Saga are on fans minds as they haven’t been in decades. In honor of International Women’s Day, let us turn our thoughts to one of our bravest heroes, the rebel that started it all, Leia Organa (played by Carrie Fisher in the films). While fans well know the fate of her twin brother, her story is only just now being told.
From all corners of the Star Wars extended universe Leia’s back story is being laid out like so many puzzle pieces. Fellow Disney property Marvel Comics released a five-issue comic last summer chronicling Leia’s own adventures just after she doesn’t give Chewie a medal in the closing scene of Star Wars: A New Hope.
Now that Star Wars The Force Awakens has been in theaters for a couple of weeks, it’s time to delve into the film fully and discuss everything that happened. While on the surface, the movie is solid and a lot of fun, for those of us die-hard fans there’s quite a bit to take in. So, without further ado here’s a SPOILER FULL look at The Force Awakens. If you haven’t seen the movie stop reading, go see the movie, then come back.
We’re just a little more than 3 weeks away from the long-awaited release of Star Wars The Force Awakens and in the last few weeks it seems that Disney is aiming to take over the known universe. Their next step to doing so is the Star Wars Special that is set to air tonight on Jimmy Kimmel. Take a look at the mini trailer the show put out to advertise tonight’s show.
Winter can’t get here fast enough for fans of the epic Star Wars saga. It will be a happy holiday indeed for all when Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode VII) premieres on December 18, but until then check out this new footage from the movie’s first international spot.
