EW Coverage: Breznican on Leia, Carrie Fisher

Entertainment Weekly continues The Last Jedi coverage with “Leia’s Farewell”

Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican and his coverage of The Last Jedi remains required reading. And fans should print his piece on Carrie Fisher and Leia. Please Note: Possible spoilers ahead.

“After Carrie Fisher’s unexpected death in December, The Last Jedi will mark her final performance as Leia Organa—the Star Wars character who went from orphan to princess, to spy, to senator, and finally general of the Resistance,” writes Breznican of Carrie Fisher and her legendary role. “She remains a light that will never go out in the galaxy.”

Leia Remains Unbroken, Unbowed

Among many cool details, Breznican quotes TLJ Director Rian Johnson saying:

Her character to some degree or another has been defined by loss through this whole saga… She’s just taken hit after hit, and she’s borne it, and she focuses on moving forward and the task at hand.
