Move over, Jennifer Lopez and her trio of wedding dresses, we now have something even more extraordinary: the first glimpse of the dress Princess Leia wore to wed Han Solo — and it’s absolutely perfect for her war of stars Heroine.
Author Beth Revis writes about the moment Leia’s groom saw her at their ceremony in the new officially sanctioned book Star Wars: The Princess and the Villainpublished by Random House Worlds this month.
“Leia wore a gown of soft meadow green embroidered with flowers similar to those that adorned the outside of the temple,” Revis writes, according to the audiobook obtained from Yahoo Entertainment. “It hung loosely over her body, but it wasn’t shapeless. The sides were open, giving her room to move her legs and expose the laces of her white fur boots, which reached to her knees. She was holding a bouquet of wildflowers tied in her hair with the same string, and Han guessed that Leia had plucked the flowers just before climbing the ladder to the temple.
The concept art for the dress was exclusively shared by on Monday diversity.
Princess Leia’s hair – the character is from the late 1977’s Carrie Fisher war of stars– “hung down her back in loose waves, with two small pigtails framing her face to keep curls out of the way.” She wore flowers but no jewelry. She looked more like a nymph than a princess.”
Solo, who was portrayed by Harrison Ford in the films, remarked, “Leia had never looked like this moment.”
The book takes place after that Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983). While it explains that part of Han and Leia’s life together is romance, readers learn that there are more than a few obstacles in their galaxy.
“Her marriage, and the peace and prosperity she represents, is a lightning rod for all — including the remnants of the Empire that still cling to power,” reads the book’s official synopsis.
In preparation, Revis said she looked at the three originals war of stars movies again.
“I took pages and pages of notes on their dialogue, their mannerisms and the subtle ways they interacted,” Revis, who has previously written about the franchise, told StarWars.com in February. “Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are just brilliant actors and they gave me a lot to work with! I wanted this to be a story where the past is still present, but they’re moving into new territory.”
The author whose work also features in Walt Disney World’s new work Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser attractiontested the dialogue between Leia and Han on her husband because she knew getting it absolutely right was crucial.
“Fighting is Han and Leia’s love language, after all!” she said. “I love to blow up ships in space, but finding the right balance between funny and romantic in her dialogue was maybe the hardest part of the whole book.”
