As long as I’ve loved Star Wars, I’ve also longed for its female characters to make it better.It’s not that I’m not constantly drawn to Princess Leia’s sperm, Rey’s otherworldly power, Rose Tico’s Faith, or Jyn Ersos Persistence inspired, but I just wanted more. I wanted to see female characters like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Poe Dameron, and the legions of boy characters in the Star Wars universe capable of casual exploits against the Empire. I wanted to see women like – Women in the plural – defeat the enemy like it’s no big deal

Instead, Star Wars gave me princesses who fought alongside Jedi and villains, select ones who dazzled with their supernatural abilities, and pals who were often pushed aside when the story got good, and Star Wars never gave me what I did secretly wanted until now

The season two finale of Mandalorian features a sequence in which four incredible women warriors – Cara Dune (Gina Carano), Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff), Koska Reeves (Mercedes Varnado) and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) – Are skillful Take an Imperial cruiser as a quartet They do this with teamwork, strategy, skill and without the boost of power. It was a really inspiring scene for a longtime Star Wars fan like yours, and it was done without the self-congratulations on the back Other Movies Have Used For Their “Girl Power” Moments While everyone else howls about Dark Troopers and Mando (Pedro Pascal) battle with Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), some of us are still here arguing about this one Crack team of wild women warriors

Being a Star Wars fan in the 90s was a lonely business, especially for a girl don’t get me wrong, my best friends in grade school were also hardcore nerds like me, but they were the only friends too Nobody seemed to understand the comfort Star Wars’ escapism gave me, nor did they understand why I devoured the novels of the expanded universe (now known as “Legends”) While the films took me to a galaxy far, far away, the spin-off novels introduced women to the way I wanted to be while I was shy and weak, characters like Mara Jade, Jaina Solo, and Tenel Ka wore lightsabers and fought back Damned , even Leia was rather a bad guy in these books. In addition, women had friendships in these novels, alliances, and even rivalries

While the new films have done a lot in bringing women to the fore, we haven’t been given much when it comes to women who have relationships – of any kind – with other women, but the Mandalorian Season 2 managed to do that Continuously introducing female perspectives into the image, whether it’s the return of Amy Sedaris’ Pelli motto, the bravery of Frog Lady, or the live-action introduction of Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), The Mandalorian hasn’t skimp on forcing Mando himself Listening to the Ladies The Mandalorian season two finale, however, finally got women to be really wild together

At the beginning of Mandalorian chapter 16 “The Rescue”, Din Djarin tracks down two of the Mandalorians he met at the beginning of the season: Bo-Katan and Koska Reeves. He lures them on a mission to save Grogu by pointing to it indicating that he can lead her to Moff Gideon and the Darksaber. Immediately, Bo-Katan switches to the strategy of her best plan of attack.She and Koska will team up with ace shooter Fennec Shand and former rebel shocktrooper Cara Dune to aboard Moff Gideon’s cruiser to go and create a diversion for Mando to get the kid

It was one thing to hear the plan described, but quite another to see it in action Bo-Katan bravely rams an Imperial transporter through the TIE hunt in a motion akin to the hot flying of Sackhoff’s Battlestar Galactica -Character Reminds Then the fun begins.The four women run out of the ship and defeat Imperial stormtroopers with the efficiency of a SEAL team.In a series of engaging battle sequences, all of which demonstrate each character’s unique fighting style, the women take over the ship and they have me too taken the heart

This was the moment I’d always dreamed that Star Wars would give me something: Women Who Work Together to Make Shit I didn’t lose the characters constantly offering to cover each other up, you said literally saying they had their backs on each other The synergy of the way each of the fighting styles came together to destroy their opponents? Like a violent ballet of sportiness and grace

I just want to thank Carano, Sackhoff, Varnado and Wen for bringing this moment to life, of course, I also have to thank the amazing stunt doubles who worked on the episode: Amy Sturdivant for Cara Dune, Caitlin Dechelle for Bo-Katan, Lauren Kim for Koska Reeves and Ming Qui for Fennec Shand Together, these eight ladies – the actresses and their stunt doubles – created a series of sequences that were the biggest bruises of the lonely little 10-year-old me would have caused
