Disney Bows to Star Wars Fan Backlash, Adds Princess Leia Toys to New Line

Originally posted 06/10/2014 12:20PM

There's a scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Princess Leia shuts up the eternally cocky Han Solo with the line, "Well, I guess you don't know anything about women yet."

Star Wars Cast: May the Force Be with Them, Today & Always

"May the Fourth be with you."
