LEGO Star Wars: A discreet but thoughtful tribute to Carrie Fisher

LEGO Star Wars: A discreet but thoughtful tribute to Carrie Fisher
0

The new Lego Star Wars game: The Skywalker Saga is now available and promises great content for fans of both licenses! Big fans of easter eggs, the developers at TT Games have reserved a nice one in honor of Carrie Fisher.

Legendary interpreter of Princess Leia Organa, Carrie Fisher held her role until the end, to the delight of fans. With her pungent humor and her worked cynicism, she did not have her tongue in her pocket when she was invited on a TV set or gave an interview.

That being said, the developers of the LEGO Star Wars game instead wanted to pay him a somewhat ironic tribute by referring to a filming anecdote that dates from his debut. At that time, the actress may not have had the insurance that has since been attributed to her…

Does Carrie Fisher have a trembling voice?

The biggest fans of the Skywalker epic who have watched " Star Wars IV - A New Hope " in its original version dozens of times may know this: during the opening scene, when Leia speaks with Moff Tarkin in the 'Death Star, she takes on a curious British accent . The actress being American and the character not having been specially written to have a particular elocution, the situation is strange. Especially since the more we advance in the film (and in the sequels), the more his accent becomes American again.

The reason ? Carrie Fisher would have been so nervous during filming that her voice would have accidentally turned to this curious British accent. Even if no official explanation has ever been given, it is this one that we retain today. Some people, however, want to give the actress more credit and claim that if she speaks this way only in this scene, it is because her opponent has a real British accent and that Princess Leia is laughing at him. imitating his voice.

We will probably never have the end of this story, so you are free to choose the reason you prefer!

What does it have to do with the LEGO game?

We can salute the attention to detail of the developers who have squarely introduced this anecdote into their game. hearing, you will realize that Leia begins speaking with a British accent, and that after escaping from the Death Star, she will have an American accent.

It's certainly not a big deal and ultimately quite a few players are likely to notice it for themselves, but it is precisely this desire to leave nothing out that makes LEGO games fun. Fun easter eggs , more or less fine allusions to the original work taking into account the memes that exist on it, and respect for the basic creation despite the parody layer: that's what we want to see!
