Can we talk about my girl Leia? Because she looks AMAZING in this new poster. AH-MAY-ZING. Also, she looks like an adult woman. A woman who has been through some stuff. You know, stuff like your home planet getting blown up, accidentally making out with your brother, the usual.
But in this new poster? They haven’t airbushed every line from her face, or put her is some low-cut top to force cleavage into the shot. She looks like a bad ass. She always has been, of course, but I can’t wait to see what this new, grown Leia has in store. It’s the details like this that have me so stinking excited for December. Have you seen what Kevin Smith, aka the world’s biggest Star Wars fan, had to say recently?
“I saw a buddy of mine, a filmmaker friend, who is making this movie that is so fucking wonderful,” the director says. “And I saw a chunk of it. And it was… spellbinding. It’s the only way I can describe it. It’s like, I love movies and sometimes I over praise them and shit, but this is the only way I can describe this: it was like – not figuratively, literally – being transported to the fountain of youth. And having the fountain of youth taking me back to 1977. First time I saw a picture called Star Wars. I can’t say much more.”
