“Star Wars”: Leia wields her lightsaber in a beautiful, classically styled painting; Check!

The official website of the “Star Wars” saga has published a beautiful official painting showing Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) wielding her lightsaber.

The work entitled “Until our last breath” was painted by Christophe Vacher for the end of the film franchise in “The Ascension Skywalker”.

In an interview with the website, he explained:

“When I was asked to do a painting of Leia, I didn’t know how to portray her in the classic style, but I was told that she would be shown as the Jedi at some point in the movie, so I imagined her in a heroic position. When I watched this short sequence in which Leia is coached by Luke, I started to think about what happened to her then … How long was she trained? Why did she end up becoming a general rather than a Jedi? I tried to paint something that also conveyed this feeling.

Discover the painting:

Last year, Good Morning America released a behind-the-scenes video from the sequel, showing Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd playing Leia in the film’s flashback.

Enjoy watching:

The scene follows Jedi training between Luke (Mark Hamill) and Leia, and Fisher’s face has been digitally inserted into Lourd’s body.

From the start of the video, Lourd jokes about playing in her mother’s shoes and says:

“It’s literally a gift from her [Fisher] or she forces us to make her the star of the film. Probably both.

For those who do not know, the faces of Luke and Leia were copied from images of the first films of the saga, when the stars were still young.

Recalling that the video on the process of creating visual effects is part of the documentary “Star Wars: The Skywalker Legacy”.
