First Look at Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It appears that security on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t quite as high as J.J. Abrams would like. You Tube Channel That Hashtag Show has recently released images of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.

Princess Leia is a character that we haven’t seen much of yet in any of the official releases so take a gander and get your first look.PrincessLeia-xlarge

The photos appear to have been taken during a wardrobe fitting and they do match costume description that gave us in January and sketches that appeared in February.

Princess Leia is wearing a solid jumpsuit. It is grayish blue. She wears a black vest which hangs below her waist. The vest is more in the style of the Tantive IV trooper than Han Solo’s classic vest. The jumpsuit has an open button-down collar and the cuffs are rolled up about two inches at her wrists. She has a thick black belt with a silver belt-buckle (very 1980).  Her hair is braided and pulled over to the side so it hangs over her left shoulder in a ponytail. Her hair is grey with dark blonde tones to it. She has dark black boots on with a darker black band around the top of them.

Leia’s costume really evokes the look and feel of the Tantive IV Troopers sans dopey space helmet. The blue with the black vest and the black boots almost works in a way as to state she is or was of those people. Its an early Spring attire that says “Remember Alderaan.” The under-jumpsuit really has an Empire Strikes Back vibe to it. But overall, she looks like the queen of the Tantive IV troopers
