Little Orphan Annie (Characters)

"How'd he take, um...what happened."
"Shrugs it off. Calls himself Little Orphan Annie...which I think means badly."

Little Orphan Annie is not, as one might think, a nickname for the young Anakin Skywalker, but rather a comic heroine originating in the 1920s, who possesses a trusty nature, an unruly mop of red curls, and a benevolent capitalist caretaker named "Daddy Warbucks." Her comic strip remained popular for over 50 years and spawned several film versions and a Broadway musical, which delighted or scarred numerous children of all ages. We like to think that it is the version of the latter starring Sarah Jessica Parker as the little tyke that inspired Logan to compare her situation to his own after Aaron is murdered, and we can only hope that he'll one day follow up his analysis with a nice rendition of one of Annie's musical numbers. Maybe "Tomorrow?"
