Natalie Portman is lucky; she’s featured on two Pepsi Star Wars cans! She was first spotted on #17 Queen Amidala. Now she’s back as #18 Padme. Interestingly, in both cases, she’s featured on a Diet Pepsi can.
During the 1999 promotion, there were 4 different Diet Pepsi cans represented (not including bonus versions). We’ve already mentioned the first one, #17. Definitely a female vibe on the Diet Pepsi selections so far!
Here’s the official bio on this can:
This strong-willed handmaiden faces her own challenges, but entrusts not even the Jedi Knights with her deepest secret.
The secret word found on the can was Nearby.
It sure does seem like Padme has a big head, doesn’t it? I mean, she takes up a lot of space with her black/white artwork. The Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace logo is situated directly under the Diet Pepsi logo.
“You’re a funny little Diet Pepsi can. How do you know so much?”
