Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! All month long we'll be creating posts for each letter of the alphabet according to a theme. Click here to see the list of participating blogs.
My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.
From: Star Wars
Known For: allegiance to the rebellion, bun-shaped hair
Princess Leia is the elegant but ocassionaly scrappy gal fighting for the rebellion against overlord Darth Vader. She's a bit of a lame-o with her blaster gun (one of her early scenes she all but gives herself up to stormtroopers) but let's stick with her through to the ice planet Hoth where she gets a little more bad-ass, and in the next film when she poses as a bounty hunter. She's not giving up on the fight against evil after Vader disintigrated her home planet (her home planet. That deserves some retribution). Given there aren't many women in the Star Wars universe, naturally every dude from her (then unknown) brother, to swagger-laden Han, to creepy-slick Lando wants to get with her. But Leia is focused on the mission to defeat the empire. Leia has more stories beyond the films in various book series which I am not well versed in (but am glad to know they exist!).
Let's talk Star Wars. Which film is your favorite?
