Princess Leia Organa "STAR WARS"
"A long time ago in a galaxy far far away ..." and its accompanying haunting music must be etched in most people's minds forever. The heroine of Parts 4, 5 & 6 of the epic science fiction movie series, STAR WARS, Princess Leia Organa, an iconic fictional movie heroine determined to save her galaxy from Darth Vader and his planet-destroying Death Star.
We first see her as only a holographic image through a robot, sending out her message seeking help because she has been taken hostage by the enemy. Cute little R2-D2 escapes of course and is found and its message retrieved by farmboy Luke Skywalker who sure knows how to fly a plane, becomes a Jedi Knight and fights alongside the Princess with smuggler Hans Solo and a cast of colourful characters and allies.
Together they all fight the most evil of evils, Leia pitching in among them and handy with a gun, the rebellion leader, always determined to save her people and in the centre of all the action.
The galaxy is saved in the end, of course, with Luke's pivotal and famous fighter run down the trench to destroy the Death Star.
A heroine and her memorable story who is already legend in movie history.
