Word dropped yesterday per a report from Entertainment Weekly that Leia Organa will no longer be referred to as "Princess" in the forthcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
This might seem an outrage, like Ms. Organa was unfairly demoted a la Pluto, but Cinema Romantico suspects this announcement merely means she was promoted to Queen, like Elizabeth filtered through Nora Ephron. The problem, however, emerges in determining who the new Princess of the Star Wars™galaxy will be. Because there obviously has to be a Princess. I mean, you didn't make a Star Wars™and not include a Princess, right J.J Abrams? Because while a lot of the fanboy sniping just makes me leisurely roll my eyes, no Princess will not abide. And if it's going to be a new Princess, a Princess to follow in the footsteps of Princess freaking Leia...well, unless it's the lady shown below appearing as herself (which makes perfect sense in regards to the space time continuum because the lady shown below moves through space and time as she damn well pleases), just keep your stupid character alterations to yourself, J.J. Abrams.
