The Question Princess Leia Will Not Answer… in Star Wars #44

Posted by March 7, 2018 Comment

There was a line from the original Star Wars: Rogue One trailer, spoken by Jyn. “This is a rebellion, isn’t it? I rebel.” The line was much commented on, cropped, and used in fan videos…

A slight change in personal pronoun there. At the time of the movie, it was a line that contributed to a more sarcastic, less loyal, more maverick Jyn, one who had to be chained up by the Rebellion, and the change was a result of significant reshoots on the film.

But it also used ‘rebel’ as a verb rather than the noun of ‘rebels’ and ‘rebellion’ in the rest of the Star Wars storylines.

Well, in today’s Star Wars #44, we get a flavour of that. Under a superb cover by David Marquez

We get the introduction of General Urtya of the Mon Carla Mercantile Fleet. With an attempt to get him, and his ships, to join the Rebel Alliance against the Empire. And who asks Princess Leia a question she cannot answer.

It’s a tragedy.

In another world, in another life, Leia is a cowed subject of the Empire…
