PRINCESS LEIA AND THE MEX­I­CAN REVO­LU­TION?

Focus-Science and Technology - - Q & A -

1.

Princess Leia was brought up in a noble house­hold in a galaxy far, far away. But she ded­i­cated her­self to the down­fall of the es­tab­lished regime, by force if nec­es­sary.

2.

To most of us she is most fa­mous for her iconic hair style. The twin ‘cin­na­mon bun’ look is handy for keep­ing your ears warm on chilly plan­ets like Hoth.

3.

In 1977, Ge­orge Lu­cas was on the hunt for a dis­tinc­tive look for Leia. He was in­spired by Mex­i­can fash­ions in the early 20th Cen­tury, but women there mostly wore their hair long.

4.

Ex­cept for Clara de la Rocha. She was a rev­o­lu­tion­ary hero and guerilla fighter who be­came a colonel dur­ing the 1910 Mex­i­can Revo­lu­tion and fought in sev­eral bat­tles.
