If you’ve been anywhere near my social media lately, you may have noticed that even after almost two years, I’m still incredibly saddened by Carrie Fisher‘s unfortunate passing. I deeply miss our Space Mom, and while The Last Jedi had some incredible moments for Leia, I cannot help but want more of the rebel leader.

The new Star Wars film is due out in a few weeks, and I’m finding it hard to be excited. Han Solo is an interesting and dynamic character, sure, but does he really need a trilogy of his own? As much as I swoon over Harrison Ford (yes, he’s still got it), I don’t really mind the new actor (whatever his name is) and I love Han, I can still think of one person who deserves this film so. much. more.

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, what you’re about to read may be slightly repetitive. For those of you who don’t…if you’re not a Leia fan, you’re in the wrong place.

I have done my best to keep this review spoiler-free and will tag any potential spoils with **. 

It’s been a long two years since The Force Awakens stirred new life into the Star Wars fandom. While the first appearances of Rey (Daisy Ridley) on the Millennium Falcon brought us joy and perhaps nostalgia, the middle episode of the new Star Wars trilogy makes us painfully aware that we must let go of the past and embrace new beginnings, a passing of the light saber, as it were.

Yet, while the franchise from a galaxy far, far away moves forward, it has never been more obvious who truly is at the heart of Star Wars.
