Okay, other than the fact that I love every freaking thing about this scene, from Leia’s snark and take-charge attitude, to the fact that Han and Luke show up to “rescue” her and she ends up having to rescue THEM, to Han and Leia’s instant banter… the OTHER reason I’m reblogging this is that it suddenly hit me that the look Luke and Han exchange in that second gif reminds me SO MUCH of the look Harry and Ron exchange in the first HP movie when Hermione comes charging into their train compartment:
(I tried to find a gif which also showed Harry’s reaction, but there wasn’t one. But anyway Ron’s facial expression is much funnier so you’re not missing much.)
It’s literally THE SAME REACTION. Like “Who IS this bossy chick, and what the heck have we gotten ourselves into?”
And they have no idea what “this bossy chick” is going to end up meaning to them, or that she’s going to save their lives a hundred times over, and become a soulmate to one of them and a sister (or “like a sister”, whatever - I basically think of Harry and Hermione as unofficial siblings anyway) to the other.
Awww, my Trios. <3 You just gotta love them.
LOL, some things really never do change ;-)
(To clarify, that’s not meant as a criticism of HP, or some kind of “OMG, Harry Potter is such a Star Wars ripoff!” accusation. I love BOTH of these Trios to death, and while there are obvious parallels, the characters are also VERY different in many ways. There is room for both in the world.)
