A new video reveals just how little women — who weren’t Princess Leia — spoke in the original “Star Wars” trilogy. And here’s the shocker: it totals only 63 seconds in screen time.
Vulture uploaded the following video to YouTube, which compiles every line of dialogue spoken by non-Leia female characters in the original George Lucas films — and it’s pretty baffling:
Apart from a random Rebel fighter at the Hoth base, Mon Mothma, and good old Aunt Beru, there isn’t a ton of female representation in the original “Star Wars” movies.
At least “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” — which hits theatres December 18 — looks to be doing a way better job on the equal representation front.
