Announced last May, Yen Press will also be releasing a manga version of Star Wars Rebels, but in the meantime, here’s the summary for Leia, Princess of Alderaan…
The never-before-told story of how young Leia Organa comes to join the rebellion
against the evil Empire.
A young Princess Leia spends her days learning the ways of politics, aiding those in need and preparing for the traditional ceremony in which she declares her intention to one day rule Alderaan. But as Leia prepares herself to be named the heir of the throne, she becomes aware of the growing distance between her and her parents, who behind closed doors are leaders of the newly formed rebellion. Upon learning her parents’ secrets, Leia must now make a choice between her responsibility to the people of Alderaan and her responsibility to save a galaxy crushed by the rule of the Empire.
