Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.
I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.
And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.
Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too. These Space Valkyries should have been left in.
They really should have.
I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.
Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.
I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”
DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.
THERE WAS A STAR WARS EXHIBIT AT THE CANADIAN AVIATION/SPACE/WHATEVER THEY RENAMED IT TO AND I WENT AND
THERE WERE GIRL LUKE CONCEPTS
LUCAS HAD THAT IDEA FOR MONTHS
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
Release the Corgis!
Most adorable thing I’ve seen today.
People are all different. Different people have different breaking points. While you might have walked six blocks here through the snow, you’re used to it. You’ve grown up in a climate like this, lived in it for all of your life. Maybe she’s from California, and the prospect of walking two blocks through deep snow first thing in the morning is just unthinkable after these past few weeks. Maybe she’s got a bad leg that acts up in weather like this. Maybe her brother’s sick, and she just wanted one last thing to stress her out.
"Suck it up" is a valid answer sometimes, I’ll grant you; it is not always the answer. You know what it’s like to be in a state of misery, so it astounds me that you don’t see that someone else might be, too.
(I hear this kind of thing so much, from people that really should know better. I’m guilty of it sometimes too, and sometimes it really is just other people being lazy, but sometimes that just isn’t the case. These are people who pride themselves on being thoughtful, compassionate, selfless, and caring. I am selfish, proud of it, and acknowledge it. And I still feel more tolerant than you.)
