Apparently she spent the last 15 years trying to kill her son.

That’s all I can say. The woman is or near 70. What on Earth do you expect?

To see her bashed on comments is disgusting.

For us, Princess Leia was the original tough-as-nails heroine, and her love story with Han Solo was a relationship of equals that never got boring or stale. The dismantling and sale-for-parts of this iconic romance has kicked many of us out of the story, and the new waif – cute and clever as she may be – is an inadequate substitute for Han and Leia’s grown-up story.

I do not care what size she is..she will always be a icon. Second, Princess Leia is a General. I do not know about you, but I would say that is pretty badass.
I think her acting was wonderful. Her son went all dark sid on her, Luke is missing, & Han is a smuggler again. I think “Princess Leia” has done pretty darn good becoming a General in that mess.
I enjoyed the movie. I cannot wait until 2017!! Carrie Fisher isn’t finished yet .

-So I’m guessing that you didn’t see the movie on date night. It is a real shame people have to take a movie intended for entertainment and turn into gender biased politics.

It is so right to bash an entire gender because of bad personal experiences with members of the that gender. There, now maybe my comment will get posted.

In the Expanded Universe, Han Solo & Leia Organa gets married and is now called Leia Solo. But in “The Force Awakens”, she is referred to as General Organa. Does this mean that in the new Canon of Disney, they don’t get married? Or is this a legal semantic wherein even a married girl can still use her maiden name? So is Ben born out of wedlock? I know its petty but is Kylo Ren formerly Ben Organa or Ben Solo?

The villain? We’ll make sure he’s really bad and white.

I am shocked…SHOCKED I tell you!
