On Screen: She is a General NOT a Princess

Within the Entertainment Weekly article J.J. Abrams informed us that Princess Leia is no longer going by the title Princess.


“She’s referred to as General,”“But … there’s a moment in the movie where a character sort of slips and calls her ‘Princess.’…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.”

Carrie Fisher went on to add that “Solitary. Under a lot of pressure. Committed as ever to her cause, but I would imagine feeling somewhat defeated, tired, and pissed.”

Opening in theaters on December 18, 2015, Star Wars: The Force Awakens
