“Star Wars” famous character, Leia Organa, is no longer a princess in the series’ upcoming instalment, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, says director JJ Abrams.
Leia is referred to as General in the new movie, reported Aceshowbiz.
“She’s referred to as general, but there’s a moment in the movie where a character sort of slips and calls her ‘Princess’. It’s not revealed who slips up, but it may be a character played by a returning actor like Han Solo (Harrison Ford),” said Abrams.
Carrie Fisher, who plays General, described Leia as ‘solitary and under a lot of pressure’.
“Committed as ever to her cause, but I would imagine feeling somewhat defeated, tired, and pissed,”she added.
“The stakes are pretty high in the story for her, so there’s not much goofing around where Leia’s concerned. But it felt historic to have her, especially with Harrison, back in scenes together. I can only imagine the baggage that they bring to it, I’m just a fan who loves this stuff, but they’ve been living with it and living in it since ’77,” Abrams said.
