She anticipated the oncoming danger of the First Order, and saw the once prosperous governing New Republic stagnate and divide itself through two decades. Now, General Leia Organa's small and covert Resistance, including her returned to the fold ex-husband in Han Solo, is all that's left to face the approaching onslaught of their new dark enemy, and its system annihilating Starkiller Base, in this scene from THE FORCE AWAKENS, out now on UK Blu-ray, DVD, and HD download from DISNEY/LUCASFILM.
The path to Leia's vital formation of the Resistance, and what prior happened to her after the once glorious events of destroying the second Death Star and crippling the Empire, will soon be revealed in Claudia Gray's exciting all-new adventure set before TFA: Bloodline, out in UK hardback May 5th 2016, via CENTURY PUBLISHING.
Here's the book blurb:
WITNESS THE BIRTH OF THE RESISTANCE
When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory. Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy―from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy. As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position―even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia’s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing. . .
