Looking For Leia Coming To SYFY This Saturday
---------------------------------------------
Man, it's been a long time coming!

Looking For Leia is a seven part docu-series about women
as well as non-binary fans who found identity, connection,
and purpose in their love of the galaxy far, far away.

Following a much-buzzed about and highly successful
DragonCon sneak peek this past year, SYFY Wire acquired
the 7-episode series from independent filmmaker and
creator Annalise Ophelian!

Trailer: (40secs)
<https://youtu.be/KGHv-ubNNiM>


In 10-15 minute episodes, Looking For Leia tells the
stories of women as well as non-binary fans who have been
forever changed by the "Star Wars" franchise, including:

"How We Carrie On"
From her on-screen creation of one of film's most iconic
heroines to her off-screen work as an author and mental
health advocate, Carrie Fisher made an indelible impact on
generations of fans. Oaxaca-based Bárbara Lazcano talks
about the significance of Fisher and shares how the
Princess-turned-General character inspired her career and
lifelong family memories.
[This episode will also air on the SYFY network on 12/21]

"What We Build"
"Star Wars" fans are among some of the most passionate
builders and makers. Meet Naila Browne, Psy Delacy, and
Christina Cato - three women with no previous building
experience who immersed themselves in 3D printing and
coding to build fully functional droids.

"Where We See Ourselves"
What happens when under-represented fans see themselves on
screen? Tansura Thomas talks about being a non-binary
cosplayer; SYFY Wire contributing editors Preeti Chhibber
and Swapna Krishna discuss the significance of
representation in media; and documentary photographer
Rhynna Santos shares her portrait projects centered on
plus size fans and fans of color.

"More Than the Basement"
Authors Cecil Castellucci, Preeti Chhibber, Bonnie Burton
and Tracy Deonn share their experiences of having their
fandom questioned and subjected to testing, and how their
love of "Star Wars" goes beyond the screen and into their
daily lives through fashion, art, jewelry, and crafts.

"It's a Whole Galaxy"
Hugo Award winning author Charlie Jane Anders, SYFY Wire
contributing editors Preeti Chhibber and Swapna Krishna,
Elena Rose Vera, Meg Humphries and more share their stories
about how the beloved franchise shaped them.

"The Stories We Tell"
Before Twitter and Tumblr, early fandom was written and
recorded in fanzines. Writer, artist and publisher Maggie
Nowakowska takes us on a tour of her extensive print
fanzine collection, and describes how fandom helped shape
40 years of community.

"What We Preserve"
In 2013, "Star Wars: A New Hope" became the first major
motion picture to be translated into Dine, as a Navajo
language preservation effort. Voice actors Clarissa Yazzie
(Princess Leia) and Geri Hongeva (C3PO) join translator
Jennifer Wheeler to describe the process and impact of the
project.


Be sure to catch the multiplatform debut on Saturday,
December 21. All seven episodes will be available on SYFY.com,
VOD, YouTube and NBCU's OneApp, with two episodes airing
back-to-back on the SYFY television network at 11/10c.

It sounds like more Neo-Marxist crap. Did Kathleen Kennedy produce this
junk?

Yes, Kathleen Kennedy is still in charge of LucasFilm and the
talentless lazy hack JarJar Abrams was in charge of Episode IX ...
betwen the two of them they've made a complete mess of the movie and
the Star Wars franchise because neither of them has even the remotest
clue what they're doing.

Apparently they brought in George Lucas to help them try to fix the
disaster, and then just threw out about 60% to 80% of what he helped
them with. :-\
