The Empire (And Amanda Lucas's Opponent) Strikes Back

Any women who really hated the new Indiana Jones flick or anything else from George Lucas's filmography have a pretty good way to voice their displeasure. They can take up mixed martial arts and beat the stuffing out of his daughter Amanda. As you can see from the picture at right, the young lady can take a few punches.

The younger Lucas took part in a Princesses of Pain event in New Zealand over the weekend, part of a worldwide effort to create an women's international fight league. It was her first fight and, from the looks of things, she might have spent a little too much time training agaisnt Ewoks instead of full-sized humans.

The Sunday News of New Zealand reports that she might look familiar to really dedicated watchers of the latest three films of the Star Wars saga.

She was dancer Diva Funquita and the voice of Trade Federation battleship communications officer Tey How in Episode I The Phantom Menace, Outlander Club patron Adnama (Amanda spelled backwards) in Episode II Attack of the Clones, and Senator Terr Taneel in Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

She also spent time teaching hip-hop dance in San Francisco which helped neither her ability to evade strikes nor the creation of a racially inoffensive Jar Jar Binks. May the force be with her in future battles.
