…In A Different Galaxy Far, Far Away
When EstherFlowers1 corrected my misspelling of Chewbacca, I joked that Chewbecca was the famous wookiee’s female counterpart. This led to me consider other characters in the cross-gender space saga.
Chewbecca is first mate on the Millenium Tiercel and best friend to Ann Solo. Along with Lucy Skywalker and Jen Kenobi, they rescue Prince S. Layer (the less said about his bedroom antics the better) from the evil Darth Vera.
(C3PO and R2D2, being sexless, remain the same but they are portrayed by Antonia Danielles and Kenita Baker.)
The adventure continues when Lucy is trained in ways of The Intuition by Yolonda, and Ann and co. are betrayed by Linda Calrissian. After being frozen in carbonite, Ann is then taken by Bobbie Fett to the space-gangster Jessica the Hutt.
If the finale, the evil Empress Paula Pteen is defeated by Vera’s previous personality, Annie Kinskywalker.
The unsung heroine of the entire franchise is the double-X Wing pilot, Wedge Heel.
I suppose it’s a bit late now to say SPOILER ALERT but, seriously, is this anything you didn’t already know?
