The most famous nip slip in Star Wars history? & a bit of Ming-Na Wen as Leia

  • by

This post is about space nipples & Ming-Na Wen dressed in Princess Leia costumes

The two are unrelated but… 

We said it.

Space Nipples & Fennec Shand as Leia. 

Nipples and a certain wardrobe malfunction and we’re not talking about Miss Rhythm Nation, Janet Jackson and her deliberate Superbowl breast display with Monsieur Timberlake.

At this point, it is indeed fair to ask why on Warth (!) is this Star Wars blog even entertaining the thought of doing a post on nipples.

This is not Playboy Magazine, after all, our dear readers seriously come for the articles.

And the character quotes.

And of course the shapely form of a Twilek.

What if I was to tell you that Return of the Jedi actually features a nipple slip?

It’s the most famous wardrobe malfunction in the entire galaxy!

So here goes the tale.

Cast your mind back to Jabba’s Palace in Return of the Jedi. Jabba takes umbrage of a sort with his green slave dancer Oola and as Jabba draws his Twi’lek girl closer to him by pulling her chains, she resists as she knows what’s coming – her end.

During this struggle, her great green breast comes out from under her costume, revealing all.

It’s a blink and you’ll miss the flash moment, however, when people were able to rent Return of the Jedi on VHS in the mid-eighties, they were able to watch the scene in slow motion and get an eyeful.

Legend has it that this is the most paused moment in home rental video history!

On a hunch, we checked, and in the Disney+ Plus version of this scene, there’s still a space nipple blowing free in the wind:

How about some close ups?

Unlike how Carrie Fisher had to tape her breasts down in ANH, someone clearly forgot the gaffer tape on set the day they filmed Oola!
But wait, is the second blue dancer showing some skin as well? Thanks, Special Edition of ROTJ! This blue dancer is Lyn Me.

Carrie Fisher wasn’t exactly a shy gal though. Did you ever spot the part in Jedi where Han Solo does a sneaky boob grab? No surprise their though – Ford and Fisher had an affair during the filming of A New Hope while Harrison was married.

Here’s 501 facts and trivia about Star Wars films.

For your final cosplaying intel – here’s Ming-Na Wen, who you may know as Fennic Shand from the Mandalorian dressing up as Slave Leia:

She posted it on Instagram herself, saying she needed a few drinks first! You’ll see Shand next in The Book of Boba Fett coming 2021

To keep this party going, here’s Ming-Na rocking a classic white one piece Leia outfit:
