Leia is one of the most recognized and revered characters in film, yet we still know very little about her upbringing. From the time she was whisked away by Bail Organa, adopted by he and his wife and then shows up in A New Hope, we know almost nothing (we do know just a bit more now, thanks to an appearance by the rebellious princess in Star Wars Rebels). Now thanks to The Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Claudia Gray, Leia’s transition from princess to rebel is now complete.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by fellow Rebels Christy Morris and Thomas Harper to talk about Leia, Princess of Alderaan. We discuss Christy's first Star Wars book, Leia's characterization, Leia and her parents, from princess to rebel, Kier, YA, the cost, saw, Last Jedi connections, Amilyn Holdo and our ratings.
