Please noirify the prequels too. Imagine, Episode 3 would be like back in the mid/late 1920s, when the bloodiest gang wars were happening in Chicago. Imagine the Emperor too like the biggest big boss of them all, sort of like Capone really.
Actually, this suddenly reminds me of this youtube video: [link] - "Michael Corleone Executes Order 66".
Best Leia ever. That dress is awesome, with her leg cocked out to the side, and I love her whole pose with the gun, the forties hairdo... she's just perfect. Looks like she stepped out of an old movie.
Oh Wow! Now I feel stupid for not considering how completely awesome a Noir Leia would be... You totally nailed this one!!!
I can see it now... a drug addled Leia being held against her will in Boss Vader's sprawling 'White Star' nightclub... storm trooper goons guarding every door... her plaintive dreamy performances finally heard one day by rescuers Han and Luke posing as patrons. The drug parallel w/ Leia and LA NOIR is already there; remember the creepy floating-syringe-orb-interrogation droid? Goes right along w/ certain scenarios depicted in LA NOIR.
Hey, this genre is MADE for Solo isn't it? He was born to be re-imagined as a gritty private dick, no? The Bladerunner thing is already built in. What would a retro millenium falcon set of wheels look like?! I'm thinking that it would be a white painted (filthy) much customized army surplus vehicle. A road converted US Army M3 halftrack? Procured by Solo working the black market in France!
One problem I predict is that Chewbacca sort of needs to be a black dude, which unfortunately comes off as fairly offensive. :/
Sounds awesome! Are we going to get lucky w/ a youtube link or something for your little NOIR WARS flick?
I'm anxious to see how you adapted the rest... loving everything so far. Photographer + reporter R2 & Threepio = brilliant! All your Star Wars revamps are genius, but I feel this one is particularly clever. And so very timely.
Hmmm.... I would have done something else with her hair, and called her Leila instead of Lola... to keep it a tad more recognizable. But I like it, and I like the touch of the gun a la Leia's blaster pistol.
I understand changing the names, I just think that the hair, coupled with "Lola" is too much of a departure. And yes, hairbuns can get overused, but maybe something shorter could have made me think more of Leia... also, it looks black, and brown would have helped me more.
Just personal comments; I know this is an adaptation, a reinterpretation, and you do great work.
I love all your alternate Star Wars lines. Mostly because they all follow along with stuff I love anyway. This Noir Wars line is pretty sweet, and though the rest of them have been awesome so far I really like your Leia. I always liked the dresses and styles of the 30s and 40s, so this is pretty sweet. I dig the gun too. Even 40s Leia will shoot your sorry ass, and be sexy while doing it.
