Was Princess Leia Russian?

Calm down nerds, she’s still from Alderaan.

However, we couldn’t help but notice a similarity in this costume photo from Maurice Maeterlinck’s 1908 play “The Blue Bird.” It premiered at the Moscow Art Theatre and went on to inspire five film adaptations and a Japanese cartoon series in the 1980s. The actress is Maria Germanova.

Princess Leia, eat your heart out.
