18 Time Princess Leia Was the Burn Queen of 'Star Wars'
Listen here you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herders. In space, no one can hear you scream. But they can hear when you get pwned. And who is the “Burn Queen” of a galaxy far, far away?
Princess Leia, of course.
When ‘Star Wars’ was released in 1977 one of it’s biggest surprises was that its damsel in distress was no damsel and not in much need of rescue. It stands to reason that if Han and Luke didn’t show up to break her out of cell block 1138, she would have escaped one way or another. And she would have landed some sick burns along the way.
Before she died at the end of 2017, it felt like the world got to know Carrie Fisher again. Her reprisal of Leia Organa in The Force Awakens led her on a press tour where she put her ‘won’t take shit from no one’ attitude on full display for the world, and the world loved it.
It’s hard to imagine another actress besides Fisher being able to landing zingers about Wookies and foul stanched Grand Moff’s.
