Kim Kardashian remembers her Star Wars days

2015-12-21 13:58

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West ''really connected'' with Kanye West on a Star Wars-themed TV show in 2008.

The 35-year-old beauty celebrated the release of new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens by sharing some throwback photos from one of her first encounters with her now-husband.

She wrote on her website: ''In honour of Star Wars: The Force Awakens being released today, I wanted to share these old pics of Kanye and me from years ago!

''We worked together on a pilot for a show called Alligator Boots back in 2008 and I played Princess Leia.

''We had met before this project (back in 2003), but I would say this is when we first really connected. These pics are SO funny! (sic)''

In the photos, Kim - who has children North, two, and Saint, two weeks, with Kanye - donned a gold chain bra and two buns to portray Princess Leia, while the 38-year-old musician dressed as a stormtrooper.

The raunchy comedy featured puppets hooking up, Kanye dancing with puppeteers and Kim telling him she was going to have sex with a bear named Beary White/Big Chocolate.

And the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star - who married Kanye last year, two years after they started dating - previously said she'd enjoyed the experience.

Speaking off-camera in a 2011 YouTube video, she said: "It's nothing new for me. I play with puppets all the time."

Kanye added: "I love the first Star Wars. You get that organic feel with my character."
