Empire Strikes Back: The Feminist Edition | MGK

Ah Ha! This is the inspiration I need to get me working on the proper re-work of Episode Two, in which Amidala is the missing Han Solo archetype… the sleazy politician who toys with the naive, frustrated Jedi apprentice but falls in love anyhow.

…bouncing around the idea of what ‘Empire’ might look like if Leia was actually treated like the strong, fearless, intelligent woman she was in the original ‘Star Wars’, rather than the Ice Princess Who Just Needs A Big Strong Man To Tell Her What To Do in ‘Empire’. And she suggested I blog about it. The rules: Change the actual plot as little as possible, while having Leia do things that an actual well-written, well-developed female character would do as opposed to a whiny damsel in distress.
