The Kickstarter campaign only has eight days left and a hefty chunk of change to bring in – $8169 to be precise – but read on as the Looking For Leia documentary promises to be a fascinating look into the fandom from a female perspective.

We’re featuring an intergenerational and culturally diverse group of female fans, as well as women who are film buffs and cultural scholars, cosplayers and gamers, artists and authors. We’re talking to women in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math); women who use Star Wars in the classroom; women whose career path was shaped by Star Wars; women whose love of Star Wars has helped them battle cancer and live with disability and mental illness; mothers, daughters, and sisters in Star Wars families; women who are rebels and royalty, Imperials, bounty hunters, and Jedi. Every generation has a Star Wars story, and we’re hearing about the original trilogy, prequels, animated series, comics, Extended Universe/Legends, video games, new trilogy, stand-alone films, and conventions.

If you have even the slightest interest in seeing this come to fruition and on screen, get pledging but do it quick. If the full amount isn’t reached, the documentary doesn’t happen.
