Oh, Star Wars…
Star Wars fans shared their support for former The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano on an International Women’s Day post on the official Star Wars Facebook page.
The official Star Wars Facebook page posted an excerpt from Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy celebrating Leia Organa.
The excerpt reads, “Leia Organa’s fearless bravery, intelligence, sharp wit, and commitment to fighting galactic tyranny make her an inspiration not only to the Rebellion, but to generations of Star Wars fans around the world. She’s the embodiment of hope from her first scene, when she’s evading Darth Vader to send the plans for the Death Star to someone who can help.”
It continued, “The first female lead in a galaxy far, far away, she’s at the center of the saga. She’s a Rebel, a princess, a senator, general, and hero; she’s a power player, and would be without her title or Force-sensitivity.”
The post concluded, “Whether blasting stormtroopers or making a persuasive argument, working to install the New Republic or leading the fight against the First Order, she’s a formidable leader and military strategist, and anyone who dares underestimate her learns doing so is a terrible mistake.”
