Entertainment Weekly continues to reveal more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens in their special double issue on newsstands Friday. We’ve already seen the four covers and heard about anti-Skywalker propaganda, and now we’re hearing awesome news about Princess Leia Organa’s spiffy new title. Don’t call her “Princess.”
J.J. Abrams told Entertainment Weekly her new title is “General,” although “there’s a moment in the movie where a character sort of slips and calls her ‘Princess.'” (It’s gotta be Han, right?) Carrie Fisher said she approves of the snazzy new title, and she also described how General Leia is doing now: “Solitary. Under a lot of pressure. Committed as ever to her cause, but I would imagine feeling somewhat defeated, tired, and pissed.”
I’m a little sad she’s “General” instead of “Queen” because now I can’t yell “YAAASSSS QUEEN” the first time she appears on screen. (Just kidding. I’m still doing that.)
We also have a new TV spot for Force Awakens. Unlike the Japanese trailer and the first TV spot, however, this one unfortunately offers no new footage. Instead it opts for a relatively dialogue-less cut of footage we’ve seen, starring BB-8 and Chewbacca as the only speaking roles. Speaking of which, can we please have a scene where BB-8 and Chewbacca have a conversation? Subtitles optional.
