The University of North Carolina has put on a production of Fight Girl Battle World: Love in the time of space fighting: ‘Fight Girl Battle World’ opens at UNCW

While not a spoof, Nguyen makes it clear “Fight Girl Battle World” is inspired by the most beloved of sci-fi movies: Star Wars. Cast members also drew on the George Lucas megaverse to aid in character-building. “When I’m embracing the physicality of the character, I feel like Han Solo,” Harris said.

“At the edges of the Galaxy, the Grimheart Gang have driven away every peaceful settler and claimed the whole star system to themselves. Efforts to remove them have been failures, until now. As part of an eclectic group of gunslingers, your job is to bring these criminals to justice, both for their crimes against the galaxy as well as for your own personal vengeance.”
