Carrie Fisher testing out hairstyles for Princess Leia, 1977.
I know we tend to take this moment for granted…but remember this?
When we first saw ANH, we had never seen Han Solo in action before; not real action. We’d seen him acting kinda cool in the cantina, we’d seen him claim he was a great pilot. He had actually shot at Greedo, and killed him; but we never knew what Han could do when up against multiple people before.
Then, just as the heroes were escaping, right after Obi-Wan and Luke had entered the Falcon, the Stormtroopers rounded the corner…and this scene happened. Han didn’t hesitate; he popped off several shots in quick succession, took down many of the Stormtroopers, entered the Falcon, barked orders at Chewie, and blasted off into space.
No matter what we thought of Han’s morals, at that point, we knew we were firmly on his side. Who wouldn’t root for a guy who was that stupidly, amazingly brave?
