Carrie Fisher Responds To Ban On Princess Leia Slave Outfit | Film News
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is really close to its release date and the promo for the movie has been crazy, especially the past few weeks. Actors and actresses from the movie are constantly in the news and Carrie Fisher herself has done a lot of promotion.
During one of the interviews done to publicise the movie, the actress was asked her thoughts about banning the infamous gold bikini worn by her in The Return of the Jedi, and she had this to say: “to the father who flipped out about it, ‘what am I going to tell my kid about why she’s in that outfit?’, tell them that a giant slug captured me and forced me to wear that stupid outfit, and then I killed him because I didn’t like it. And then I took it off. Backstage”.
Which also means that all the rumors that spread around the Internet about a probable banning of the costume from the merchandising, due to the recent Disney involvement in the franchise, are wrong. Afterall, it would not be so simple to just dismiss an outfit that, despite being featured in only two scenes, has elevated Fisher to a sex symbol and has became an iconic status in popular culture.
