The first #Star Wars movie, Episode VII, was released in theaters in December of 1977.
Its stars were Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, the former of whom won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
And in the years that followed, Disney would bring out sequels to each of the films, but the first Star Wars films were always remembered fondly by fans.
While Star Wars has been largely a cinematic phenomenon for decades, fans have been largely focused on the film’s story, characters, and themes, and that’s led to some stories that have resonated with a certain kind of nostalgia.
For many, the iconic character of Princess Leia was one of those stories, and it’s easy to forget that it was written and directed by George Lucas himself.
“She’s so relatable, she’s just so relaying what’s going on,” Lucas said back in 2001.
“She’s a woman who’s really struggling to make ends meet, who’s basically a person who can’t really do anything because she’s been trained for it.”
But as much as Lucas loved the character of Leia, there’s one character he’s not so fond of that he felt couldn’t fit into the Star Wars universe.
Leia was meant to be a human woman, but she’s not one.
In her earliest days, Leia was a slave, but that wasn’t the case for much of her life.
She was raised by an enslaved family that would later be known as the Naboo.
Despite her origins, Leia’s backstory was kept mostly under wraps until 1977, when George Lucas gave the first glimpse at Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy.
A few years later, the story would be retold in a way that wasn.
With the release of the second film, The Phantom Menace, Lucas would finally reveal that Leia was, in fact, a human female.
But the real-life Leia wasn’t just a slave or a slave owner.
In the film, Leia is played by actress Carrie Fisher.
And despite being the daughter of the character’s master, Han Solo, Fisher also showed off her talent and prowess as a bounty hunter.
Although she was a bit of a tomboy in the film and she was very much a rebel during the Rebellion, Fisher never shied away from taking risks.
Her father was killed by Vader during the Clone Wars, but Leia’s mother, Princess Leia Organa, would later become the Rebel Alliance’s leader and eventually the Emperor’s new ruler.
Leia eventually would become the mother of a son named Luke Skywalker, and Leia’s story would go on to be central to his own development.
Over the years, Fisher would also become known as an outspoken feminist.
But she wasn’t always so outspoken.
While the actress often made a joke about her own looks, Fisher was also known for her strong opinions on women’s rights and feminism.
In 2006, Fisher gave a speech at the National Women’s History Museum in Washington, DC, in which she said, “There is no excuse for being a woman.
There is no justification for being not a woman.”
She also became a major star during the George Lucas biopic, Princess Mononoke, and even earned herself an Academy Awards nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role as Princess Leia.
For a movie that was written by Lucas, Carrie Fisher is still remembered fondLY.
And if that wasn’s not enough, she became a spokesperson for a number of causes including #BlackLivesMatter, which is an acronym for Black Lives Matter.
As for the future of Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens, there are many who think that the movie’s story could take place in a galaxy far, far away.
But with the movie coming out in 2020, many fans are worried that the sequel won’t fully explore the Star War universe that was set in the same galaxy as the original films.
There are several reasons why this might be the case.
One is that Lucasfilm has made sure to keep the film set in a distant galaxy far far away, so it would make sense for a sequel to Star Wars to come out in a place where Star Wars was a little more familiar to fans.
Also, if there was a new trilogy set in this galaxy, it might not be a Star Wars story set in an entirely different universe.
Another reason to think that Episode VII could take a bit longer to develop than the first movie might be that it’s still in production right now, meaning that it won’t be ready for theaters until 2020.
And finally, the second sequel is already almost halfway through production.
So maybe Lucasfilm doesn’t want to do anything that’s going to spoil the excitement of the new trilogy, and they want to wait until the next one comes out.
But as the writer of the original trilogy, what would you prefer to see happen?
