In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is the Top 10:
#9: Princess Leia
Princess. Warrior. Boyhood crush. She is more than a damsel in distress. Sure, she had to be busted out of the holding cell on the Death Star, but after that, she was the one in charge. She is a respected leader in the Rebel Alliance and someone who can stand up to Han Solo of all people. Plus, she’s a Skywalker! (I know…spoiler alert) For me, her action figure was always in the mix, so I don’t know why there is a shortage of action figures for the female character of the Star Wars universe (listen up Disney!!!). I can’t wait to see how she has evolved in The Force Awakens. I’m sure she is still in charge.
