While doing my Who’s Your Favorite? series which featured an analysis of Leia’s several outfits throughout her time in this franchise I noticed something that blew my mind.
The three major characters of this sequel trilogy have been compared to the trio of the original trilogy which of course consisted of Luke, Han, and Leia, but it seems that J.J Abrams is playing to that similarity more closely than you might imagine.
Throughout most of the original trilogy, we saw Leia in white but when she returned for Return of the Jedi they gave her a different style.
In Return of the Jedi, she is given a rebel outfit that is completely different than the styles she had before that time.
And like Leia, Finn’s outfit in both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi was very basic, with both looks holding onto the Poe Dameron jacket.
But if you look at Finn’s new outfit it’s a straight homage to Leia’s look. The brown long-sleeved shirt, the blue pants, the vest, it’s slightly different but it’s totally reminiscent of Leia’s Return of the Jedi look, which is absolutely fascinating!
This was an observation that I just had to share and I thank you for reading. Have a great day and May the Force be with you.
