Inspired Schoolgirl Asks for Disney Princesses with Glasses

Eleven-year-old Lowri Moore, from Nottingham, England, wrote a letter to Bob Iger last year requesting the creation of Disney princesses that wear glasses. According to BBC News, Lowri, who wears glasses, said that she wanted to see more characters “wearing glasses like me.”

Lowri’s letter to Bob Iger read: “I’ve grown up watching Disney princesses and I’ve always admired them and thought they were beautiful. Unfortunately, none of the princesses wear glasses and that made me feel as though I’m not beautiful enough.”

Lowri described that the Disney characters featured with glasses were typically portrayed as “geeky or nerdy instead of beautiful.” She felt so strongly about the need for a glasses-wearing Disney princess that she came up with her own!

A local illustrator, Natalie Owen, heard about Lowri’s letter and character idea, and was a Disney fan herself- so she decided to help out! According to BBC News, Owen decided to create the story, ‘Princess Rose and the Golden Glasses,’ featuring a beautiful princess in an orange gown and, you guessed it…glasses!

Lowri was thrilled about the glasses-wearing princess- “The illustrations are amazing and I’m so excited this has happened. Rose has blue-ish glasses, brown long hair, kind of like me. Even if it’s not Disney it’s still a role model for young people. I’m happy I got to create one.”

Lowri’s mother was also touched by the new book- “[The character] thinks she’s not beautiful because she’s wearing glasses. A bit like someone else I know. And she goes on a bit of an adventure where she discovers she actually is beautiful. To come from a nine-year-old’s mind it’s so clever. I’m super proud.”

Although there is no response from Disney to Lowri’s letter, it would be great to see a glasses-wearing Disney princess in the future!

The Origins of Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Have Been Revealed

The Origins of Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Have Been Revealed. Many Star Wars fans have been curious about the creation of Rey’s new lightsaber since its reveal in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but do you know the origins of Kylo Ren’s unique lightsaber?

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi it is revealed that Ben Solo (Kylo Ren, before turning to the Dark Side) had a blue lightsaber while training under Luke. In a canon Marvel comic series called The Rise of Kylo Ren, it is revealed that after Ben attacks Luke and leaves the training compound, as he turns to the Dark Side he decides to make the cyber crystal in his lightsaber “bleed” and in doing so cracks the crystal, causing the saber to become unstable and short out. Ben then decides to add the exhaust ports that make the cross guard and then “Kylo Ren“and his iconic lightsaber were born.

The comic is worth the read for fans and gives better understanding and details that were too tedious to be incorporated into the films. The comic was written by Charles Soule with artwork by Will Sliney. Check out a synopsis for the comic below:

“Young Ben Solo is legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker’s most promising pupil. As the son of Rebel Alliance heroes Leia Organa and Han Solo, as well as Luke’s own nephew, Ben has the potential to be a great force for light in the galaxy. But the Skywalker legacy casts a long shadow, the currents of the dark side run deep, and Darth Vader’s blood runs in Ben’s veins. Voices call from both his past and his future, telling him who he must be. He will shatter, he will be reforged, his destiny will be revealed. Snoke awaits. The Knights of Ren await. Ben Solo’s path to his true self begins here.”
