Every May the Fourth, Star Wars fans across the planet (and maybe the galaxy, who knows?) celebrate our love of everything George Lucas set in motion with the 1977 film Star Wars. At the time, who would’ve guessed that little space opera would launch a franchise that continues to expand like the universe after the Big Bang all these decades later?
Now is an even more exciting time for those who love Star Wars because Disney is helping pump out new content at an accelerated speed. Movies, TV shows, comics, and novels are being produced so quickly that it can be difficult to keep up. But today I’d like to celebrate some of the women of Star Wars that have been created for this new, canon Expanded Universe and suggest it might be a fine idea to have them jump from the page to the big screen.
