A Fresh Look at Princess Leia’s Slave Outfit

British television personality Adam Buxton had a conversation with his 5-year-old daughter about Leia Organa’s slave costume in the movie Return of the Jedi. It’s both refreshing and enlightening to hear the fashion opinion of a child who has no understanding of sexism, or even sexiness, much less objectification and bondage. But this little girl is not quite a blank slate. She’s very well spoken and open to learning new things. It was animated is by The Brother McLeod for the TV special Adam Buxton's Shed Of Christmas.

The child is wise indeed.

Yes. Good fashion plan: Be captured, get the nice dress, escape, keep it.

Also, more people might like Jar Jar if they think of him as Jerry Lewis, as I always have. The flying bug who owns Anakin is Jimmy Durante.
