FAVORITE ORIGINAL TRILOGY CHARACTERS
Princess Leia was a something of a revelation when you think about it. Though she was a “damsel in distress” needing to be rescued by Luke and Han in A New Hope, look closely at the circumstances: She wisely hid the Death Star plans before succumbing to the storm troopers and she didn’t reveal the location of the Rebel base. In The Empire Strikes Back, she commands the Rebel forces and saves Luke’s life. In Return of the Jedi, she risks her life to be in place to save Han Solo (a nice reversal from A New Hope) and makes peace with a critical ally for the Rebellion without whom the Rebels may have been wiped out in one fell swoop.
She does all this with wit and charm and a significant edge to her. Princess Leia is, frankly, pretty badass…
