Your First Look At Princess Leia In The Force Awakens

Star Wars


By revealing images and clips (in trailer form) of many new Star Wars characters, Lucasfilm and Disney have built unprecedented levels of anticipation for The Force Awakens. However, one aspect of the film has remained unusually secretive: the returning cast.

Han Solo and Chewbacca made a brief appearance at the end of the most recent trailer, but we have yet to catch any glimpses of Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia—until now. While you’ll have to wait a little longer for Luke, a pair of images of Carrie Fisher in costume have been leaked in a new video by Joe from That Hashtag Show.


While these are both low quality shots from a wardrobe fitting, they do offer some revealing details. We’ll let Joe explain. “This costume is very similar to what the Rebel troops were wearing in A New Hope,” he says, adding that it “makes complete sense” if “Leia has taken on more of a military responsibility, now leading the Rebellion.”

The photos above are all Joe had to offer image-wise, but you can watch his complete video below.
