Leia, Princess of Alderaan is a 2017 publication from Disney Lucasfilm Press which imagines the coming of age of a certain intergalactic princess before events depicted in Star Wars, when Carrie Fisher introduced Princess Leia Organa in 1977.

She nailed it spot on. Claudia Grey nailed Leia’s character and characteristics perfectly. I don’t mean to disrespect anybody but I honestly don’t think anyone could have written a better origin story for Leia.

This was the Star Wars book I’ve been waiting for.
When Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2014 and effectively rebooted the canon, allowing for a complete narrative overhaaul of the novel line, I was pretty psyched. For years, I had longed to jump into the Star Wars novels, but had always found the sheer...

As far as I’m concerned, Claudia Gray has already proven herself capable of writing a damn good Star Wars novel, with fantastic examples like Lost Stars and Bloodline. So when I found out she was penning a new YA novel abou...

Writing the backstories of iconic characters is probably a bad idea almost all the time. It certainly is for Princess Leia. Claudia Gray's novel about Leia a little before Episode 4 is really bad. I can accept that perhaps Leia was once a ridiculous teenager, going through bland, stereotypical te...

Confession: I'm not generally a fan of "filling in the cracks" of the Star Wars universe: with the whole galaxy to play with, I prefer to have original characters/stories/scenarios, rather than learning about an alien that had one scene in the Mos Eisley cantina.
That said, the name Claudia Gray h...
