Disney Princess Leia



No. Just no.

Princess Leia has never been a "Disney" princess. From the very first shots we get of her are, we see her, in order:

1. Smuggling sensitive government military information to a known terrorist. (Edward Snowden, anyone?)

2. Shooting a stormtrooper DEAD.

3. Straight up TALKING SHIT to Darth "Makes Everyone Else In The Universe Crap Themselves" Vader. And then doing so AGAIN to Grand Moff Tarkin, who's arguably even more powerful than Vader on the Imperial hierarchy.

Then later, she takes an unprecedented amount of drugs and SHAKES THEM OFF, comes up with the strategy for the defense of Hoth's Echo Base (which works!), helps Han and Chewie fix the Falcon, poses as a bounty hunter, and STRANGLES AN INTERGALACTIC GANGSTER TO DEATH.

Leia Organa is about as Disney as the Bride from Kill Bill. She's a hardcore bitch who will GANK your ass.

And that's not even counting Expanded Universe Leia, who straight up kicks Prince Xizor (the head of the Black Sun intergalactic mafia) in the balls.

Oh, and also? THIS ACTUALLY GODDAMN HAPPENS.
