Mark Hamill, who starred in the original trilogy and the latest Star Wars installment, thinks the photos are great, and wishes she would be cast in the next installment of the film. Some people do not share his opinion, including parent company, the family-friendly Disney. According to the world of Twitter, some find the photos in poor taste. Lucasfilm stated they did not condone or approve of the sexualizing of robots for the photos.

Mr. Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker of Star Wars, said, “Got excited when I saw @amyschumer @GQMagazine pics & thought she was just cast in Ep 8 (Episode 8)! We should be so lucky.”

Princess Leia has been sexualized by the films for decades, there have been several TV shows, including Friends, that alluded to a man’s first sexual fantasy being Princess Leia in the same outfit. Ms. Schumer is not sorry, has made jokes about it, and says she would do it again.

There of course are many who love the photos, and those who say that Disney and Lucasfilm only think it’s fun to sexualize women, because women have no feelings, as compared to a robot, who might be hurt by being looked at as a sexual object without feelings.

Whatever side of the controversy you’re on, and whether you love her or hate her, these pictures are certainly worth looking at, and maybe give us something to think about as well.
