Star Wars is a science fiction franchise set in a universe far far away.
Who Created Princess Leia’s Aesthetic?
Star Wars is one of the most iconic films in American history. This is due to both great storytelling and the timeless costumes. And as with all great works, fans are always curious about the origins of their favorite works, and Star Wars is no exception. Whether it’s drawing links between Star Wars and other sci-fi works like Dune or Perry Rhodan, or other inspirations such as Seven Samurai, it is easy for one to see that George Lucas’s sci-fi epic was not created in a vacuum. However, one of the most iconic looks of the first film (now episode IV), Star Wars: A New Hope, is Princess Leia’s hair. And as such, it has been the subject of much speculation since the film was released. The goal of this article is not to rehash old articles or detract from how others interpret Star Wars through their cultural lens. But rather, it is an attempt to ponder the actual origins of Princess Leia’s look and offer new evidence as to its providence.
Baby Yoda Will Be Making An Appearance At Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
The Disney+ live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian has become a massive hit among Star Wars fans since its premiere in 2019. Nobody can deny that a major part of its success, of course, is owed to the surprise introduction in the very first episode of a Force-sensitive Yoda-like infant whom the titular character refuses orders to terminate and instead chooses to save and protect. "Baby Yoda," as he was known until we were given his proper name Grogu midway through the second season, has become an enormous part of the show's popularity and appeal.
'Star Wars' Featurette Shows Off Cameos You May Have Missed
The Star Wars saga had top secret cameos that were kept secret on the sets and even by “The Maker” George Lucas. The new era of Star Wars media on the new streaming platform and on the silver screen had filmmakers finding ways to include cameos from a variety of notable figures in pop culture. Ed Sheeran and Lin-Manuel Miranda were involved in the sequel trilogy. Longtime players in the Star Wars franchise like Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels found ways to appear without reprising their iconic roles of Luke Skywalker and C-3P0 respectively. Recently Disney+ released a featurette on YouTube going over cameos in the franchise that the viewers may have missed.
Everything We Know About The 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Show So Far
Out of all the upcoming live-action Star Wars TV shows, Obi-Wan Kenobi is probably the one for which fans are most excited. For several years, there were rumors and reports about a potential Obi-Wan Kenobi film starring Ewan McGregor. It was even reported that it would be directed by Stephen Daldry and written by Hossein Amini. However, when Lucasfilm decided to put the idea of standalone films on hold, the fate of the film came into question.
'Book Of Boba Fett' Director Says It Will Live Up To The Hype
The Book of Boba Fett is on the way. Soon, we shall see the return of the most feared bounty hunter in the known galaxy. Maybe not on the big screen as it was thought back in the day when a Boba Fett movie was in the works, but on a smaller screen on Disney+. The director and showrunner of the series Robert Rodriguez said that this show is “going to blow [our] minds.” What does this mean? What sort of mind blowing revelations will we see in this latest addition to the Disney+ gallery of shows?
'Star Wars' Canon Vs. Legends: Boba Fett
The Empire had assembled many agents in their quest to capture the renegade Han Solo. One group in particular assembled aboard the massive Super Star Destroyer of none other than Darth Vader himself. It was a strange gathering to say the least. Among them was an assassin droid, a reptilian Trandoshan, and what appeared to be a bipedal fly-like Gand. In such company, one would have to be truly unique to stand out, which is exactly what the stoic human Boba Fett did. When Vader singled him out with a warning, “No disintegrations,” you knew he was something special. What sort of history lay hidden underneath his armor?
Hayden Christensen Shows Off 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Production Hat In Photos
It has taken quite some time for the Star Wars family to accept Hayden Christensen. After his performance as the young Jedi Padawan and later Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the Canadian actor was harshly criticized for his wooden and rather expressionless performances. Although it is true that the love scenes between Anakin and Padme were awkward, it would be unfair to put the blame completely on Christensen who probably did his best with the directions he was given. Also, it is well know that George Lucas was NOT a people director.
Facts About Bail Organa Only Die Hard Fans Will Know

We Could Return To This Forgotten Planet In 'The Mandalorian' Season 3
The Mandalorian has done a great job of showcasing different worlds in the Star Wars galaxy. Lots of them are new, but there are also familiar ones like Tatooine and Tython. As such, there has been talk about whether we may see another familiar planet in season 3 or beyond. One that has not been showcased onscreen very much in recent years.

Are We Entering A Golden Age Of 'Star Wars'?
Since Disney’s buyout of Star Wars, many have wondered what amount of content we would get from Lucasfilm now that it had all the power and resources of Disney under its command. The first real wave of Star Wars was 2013-2019, when we got five movies and two television series, along with many books. It was a good effort with some great content. However, now it seems that things are really ramping up. We are getting several television shows in one year. While the movies have been spaced out, they do seem to want to be on their A game when it comes to making these films. On the book side we have an entire multimedia event in The High Republic, and a few games are beginning to trickle their way in with the new Knights of the Old Republic remake. We might be entering a new Golden Age of Star Wars.
