The writer and star of Universal Pictures' Trainwreck has reimagined her own version of some of the film franchise's most iconic moments for GQ ' s August issue. Carrie Fisher never did that in the blockbuster! Famed photographer Mark Seliger captured the trio's, uh, intimate moment.
Well, if things had gone according to plan, Han would be free and Princess Leia would be on her merry way. Instead, Princess Leia was revealed, and now she's Jabba the Hutt's slave. So that sucks.
The sequence with the giant bloated Jabba the Hut is a not-even-concealed Orientalist harem fantasy, complete with desert, chuckling dissipated bloated pasha and hapless princess decked out in fetishwear and chains. The dissonance is startling and stomach-churning. Obviously, a good part of the motivation for the slave Leia costume had to have been fan-service.
Saat ini, bikini tersebut telah menjadi suatu ikon kebudayaan. Rodgers mengatakan bahwa George Lucas hanya memberikan instruksi umum tentang adegan di istana Jabba the Hutt tersebut, tapi ia menginginkan suatu kostum spesial. Mulanya Rodgers "menginginkan agar kain sepanjang 25 yard diatur supaya terlihat mengambang selama adegan tersebut", akan tetapi ia tidak bisa mengusahakannya. Kostum ini awalnya dikembangkan dalam bentuk sketsa karya Rodis-Jamero, asisten pengarah seni efek visual pada film The Empire Strikes Back dan perancang kostum pada film Return of the Jedi.
Fisher, who died on Dec. Fisher disliked the outfit, the scene, and the symbolism of that moment; she was warning Ridley not to let the filmmakers disempower her. The slug-slave scene was so over the top that it can overwhelm the rest of Leia—and, to some extent, Fisher herself.
She originally "wanted 25 yards of fabric to be flowing through the scene", but couldn't make it work. The outfit was first developed in sketches by Rodis-Jamero, assistant art director of visual effects for The Empire Strikes Back and the Return of the Jedi costume designer. The fact that [Leia's costume is] such a female sensual costume, I think is terrific.
The "Star Wars" movies generally aren't very controversial, but there's one part of "Episode VI — Return of the Jedi" that still raises eyebrows. It's in regard to Princess Leia and the late Carrie Fisher, the actress who played her and who died last December. The golden bikini has become somewhat controversial over time.
Besides the fact she had to wear it, her face and body are almost always associated with it. But for a costume that appears briefly in one movie, it does open a mixed bag of feelings for Fisher, the people who worked on Return of the Jedi set, and the fans who covet it. The bikini was inspired in part by the work of Frank Frazetta, an artist who designed covers for comics such as the Buck Rogers series, along with movie posters.
