Even with all the books and comics out there right now, Disney’s new Star Wars canon is still in its earliest days, especially when it comes to the time period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. However, Claudia Gray’s new Leia-centric novel Bloodline, out this week, uncovers that mysterious era in some…
Hasbro’s Star Wars line has been in for some rough attention recently as fans clamored for, and then struggled to find, toys based on Rey after The Force Awakens came out, citing the company’s long struggle with female characters in its Star Wars toys. You wouldn’t think that with their Toy Fair announcements.
The zillions of tie-in stories for The Force Awakens revealed there was going to be a scene in the movie where Leia acknowledged that her former colleagues in the Senate were just as likely to want to have her killed as they were to ignore her. A new Star Wars novel is going to explore why that’s the case, and why…
Recently, the Star Wars fanbase took time off from freaking out about The Force Awakens to freak out over a rumored ban on merchandise depicting Princess Leia’s “Slave” outfit from Return of the Jedi. Many words about the matter have been said since—a lot of them pretty good!—but leave it to Leia herself to put it…
Star Wars: It’s not just for boys anymore! (Of course, it was never just for boys.)
Currently causing consternation: The omission of female Rey from a Star Wars gift set being sold at Target, which has spawned the hashtag #WheresRey. It’s the latest in a long line of complaints about the franchise forgetting women are fans, too. A really long line.
It’s one of the most iconic outfits in Star Wars, and sci-fi in general: The metal bikini Princess Leia is forced into by Jabba the Hutt during Return of the Jedi. But it’s not without controversy—and Disney may be making moves to remove the skimpy outfit from future Star Wars marketing and merchandise for good.
Ah, I remember it well, those opening scenes of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. That part when, having crushed any sign of resistance about the Tantive IV, Darth Vader reprimanded Luke Skywalker and put him in Imperial custody. Wait, what the what?
Nice and easy there, toy collector. Hand over your wallet and nobody gets blown away—this amazing Leia wouldn’t give two hoots that your blaster was set to stun!
If you grew up around the same time the Star Wars movies originally hit theaters, you probably had a childhood crush on Princess Leia. But seeing the character in her Slave Leia costume as a Mr. Potato Head will probably leave you feeling a little confused, awkward, and with a strange affection towards french fries.
Recently, Star Wars action figure fans were all flustered by the shocking news that a highly anticipated Princess Leia figure had suddenly vanished from preorders and distribution lists. For once however, this wasn't another example of Hasbro's ongoing female Star Wars figure problem.
Star Wars fans, good news - the new 6"-scaled Black Series figures are coming soon. And even better news! With them comes a new Princess Leia at long last, the first figure for the character in the line outside of an appearance in her Slavegirl outfit.
The gang is getting back together for the next Star Wars movie. We already knew Harrison Ford was going to become an old Han Solo and now, Carrie Fisher is saying that she'll reprise her role as Princess Leia. Is this a good thing?
You just destroyed the Death Star. You saved the galaxy and the Rebellion. Princess Leia loves you, and you don't know she's your sister yet. Galactic bliss. Now let's shotgun this beer and go home, kid.
Did you know Princess Leia had a twin sister? And that they sunbathed on Jabba barge's deck, half-naked and oily under the torrid light of Tatooine's twin suns? Neither did I. [Update: ANTHR CLEERER PICTRR AFTRR JMP]
This five-foot-tall statue of an animated version of Princess Leia is certainly a unique collectible for any Star Wars fan. However, things can get real weird real fast if you start touching it impurely. So keep your hands to yourself. Available for $799.99 starting in May 2008. [Entertainment Earth]
