Carrie Fisher will always be remembered as Princess Leia Organa. Long before her death, she seemed to have made peace with the truth. However, there was much more to Fisher than Star Wars. As an actor, novelist, script doctor, and comedian, Fisher had a sharp tongue and a sense of humor. The target of some of her sharpest jobs, though? Star Wars yourself.
The late Carrie Fisher created an inevitable hero in Star Wars
Generations of children have looked up to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford). But none of these characters are as strong or Fisher ‘s Leia Organa. Although she technically needs to save it in Star Wars: New Hope, Leia quickly takes control of the situation, replacing the two men.
Through the initial and sequel trilogies, Leia suffers unbelievable hardship but continues to do so. So many more Star Wars heroes struggle to do what is right or even recognize what that means. However, Leia is always there to get the Rebel Alliance – and the Resistance after that – on the way. She may be a general in later films, but thanks to Fisher, Leia is a royalty.
Carrie Fisher missed the opportunity to finish Leia’s story
In fact, when Fisher passed out in 2016 that meant the world saw the last of her hilarious tidbits in Hollywood. But it also meant Star Wars fans were robbed of the opportunity to see Leia’s story come to a right conclusion. And Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker suffers as a result.
Director JJ Abrams did his best to bring Leia’s story to a close. But with very few unused images from Star Wars: The army is waking up to go off, Fisher’s presence feels non-stop. Leia would have been very important The Rise of Skywalker how their ancestors depended on Han and Luke.
