Redesign of Leia. Part of my reimagining of the Star Wars universe is bringing elements of George Lucas’ influences into the world. Leia’s original hair was inspired by a style worn by Hopi indigenous women. Lucas’s vision for Tatooine, where Leia’s family is from was inspired by the American West as depicted by John Ford. To combine these in Leia’s character design I based her features on those of Hopi indigenous people. Her clothing is influenced by Alderaan where she was raised which I designed based on Colchis from Jason and the Argonauts (1963) which influenced Carrie Fisher’s Leia design.
