A-Z Challenge:Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia

We're talking characters this month, minions!  I'm doing my best with the A-Z Challenge, featuring characters of all shapes and sizes. Today's letter is "L." And today I'm highlighting a sibling dynamic Star Wars duo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia from George Lucas' uber-popular and timeless cult-classic, Star Wars. I picked this picture because it's such a classic shot of the two of them back in the day.  Remember when everybody initially thought they were love interests? Remember the kiss? LOL.


Okay, so...who did you like better?  Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia?  Why?

And let's not forget about Fred.  


Remember to stop by and say hi to Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too. Tomorrow I'll announce the winners of the Easter Hop Giveaway! Woot. Stop back by!

Have a great weekend.

STAR WARS FTW! I like them both, but Han is my favorite. Though Leia did have some great lines.
"I'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee." and when she calls Han "Laser brain." HA! Have you seen the pic of Chewy grabbing Leia's boob? It's so funny.

S. L. Hennessy said...

Yeah, Leia for the win here. Her brother was Luke AND she got with Han? Lucky girl.

Geeky Daddy said...

hmmm...between the two I would choose Luke. I always play-acted while watching the movies when I was little and had an old-ancient flashlight as my lightsaber.

I like your post. I am doing a Star Wars theme for my challenge..:)

And then we found out they were siblings and it was all about Han Solo!

Robyn Campbell said...

What a post. Awesome! I love Luke. And yes! I remember that kiss. We watch it frequently. We have them all. But don't tell anyone. Darth is my favorite character. Shhh! :-) Without him where would the excitement really be? Love your L, woman!

DonnaGalanti said...

Definitely Leia! Luke was too whiny for me, needed a good kick in the butt. Give me a feisty female any day!

Lynn Proctor said...

i would have to give the prize to luke!

Nick Wilford said...

Leia for me. I wonder if there is anyone who sees the films for the first time these days who DOESN'T know they're siblings, after all there is so much discussion about Star Wars you could know a lot without ever seeing them!

Tonja said...

Luke was kind of whiney in the first movie. Great choice for L day.

Kate O'Mara said...

I had such a crush on Mark Hamill when Star Wars came out. He was a cutie!

Guess I'd have to go for the strong female role model type. Leia.

Happy Friday Fred!

Sounds like we are going to have a rainy stormy weekend.

Nel said...

I guess I should be ashamed, I was never a Star Wars fan. Have never even watched one of the shows all the way through. I am just not a big fan of Sci Fi. I know strange...lol Hope you have a great weekend.
until next time... nel

It was a bit creepy once we found out they were siblings.

I'd go with the Princess. Leia was a new kind of female hero.
