As a young girl, Star Wars was the center of my galactic daydreams. After the release of the Empire Strikes Back in 1980, Princess Leia became my idol. She was a strong, gorgeous, and a badass princess. One halloween, I constructed a homemade Leia costume. My costume consisted of an old ivory bed sheet, and my hair wrapped into two buns. My mother wasn’t fond of my creation, and begged me to dress into something more classic. She said, “Can’t you be Raggedy Ann? A princess? A nun? COME ON MIJA, ANYTHING ELSE?!” I winked at her and I headed out to trick or treat (with an overflow of self confidence might I add).
Earlier this week, my childhood dream came true… My son and I screened Star Wars: The Last Jedi, at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. The whole experience was memorable and magical! This new epic film can now be seen in theaters everywhere…
Thank you Disney for inviting me to screen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. All opinions are my own.
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
When my childhood idol Leia (Carrie Fisher) hit the big screen, I was overcome with tears. This fierce actress was a heroine and such a big part of my playtime memories… She will be missed.
There were many intense battles that kept my son and I on the edge of our seats.
In the Last Jedi we are introduced to a strong, Asian American female actress. Asians only have 1% of leading roles in the movie industry. However, this is 2017! One of the largest franchises in the world, has EXCITINGLY created an Asian female lead. Now, Asian American children can look up to Kelly Marie Tran…
