Ever wonder what really happened to poor Amidala after Anakin went and got his legs chopped off by Obi-Wan? The Amidala Space Hunter Art Print provides an answer.
Star Wars fans know half the story. We know Anakin got his butt handed to him by Kenobi during an epic lightsaber battle, and we know Anakin went on to become Darth Vader, who terrorized the galaxy for years.
We heard Amidala died giving birth to Luke and Leia… but honestly, would you want to risk being associated with the Dark Lord of the Sith? Would you want to risk Vader coming for you and making you his unwilling bride? Of course not, so Amidala faked her death and became a bounty hunter, tracking dangerous aliens from one end of the galaxy to the other. Ah, that sneaky R2-D2; he’s a master at keeping secrets.
Artist Carlos Valenzuela wasn’t shooting for a resemblance to Natalie Portman, which is why Amidala looks a little different from the movies. However, sci-fi fans will undoubtedly recognize her trophies:
The aliens, from left to right:
– from ‘Mars Attack’
– from ‘Invasion of the Saucer Men’
– from ‘This Island Earth’
The print measures approximately 11″ x 16″.
The Amidala Space Hunter Art Print is available for $22.77 at Under the Floorboards.
