Star Wars: Leia Princess of Alderaan a Prequel to A New Hope

Disney and Star Wars continue to expand their new universe with books.

Claudia Gray is penning one for young adults entitled Star Wars: Leia Princess of Alderaan.

Not many details have been released yet, but this book will focus on our favorite princess in a time period we’ve not seen her in before.

It is set as a prequel to A New Hope, showing what sixteen-year-old Leia was up to.

Presumably, it will show Leia as the Alderaanian representative to the Galactic Senate, as that is what she was at the beginning of A New Hope.

We also expect it to end right before A New Hope begins, possibly even involving some of the events of Rogue One.

Oddly it is listed as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi series.

This is odd because it makes little sense for a book before Episode IV to be part of a book series explaining Episode VIII.

However, this inclusion into that series suggests that there will be someone or something important to The Last Jedi, whether obvious or not.

Star Wars: Leia Princess of Alderaan is set for a September 1 release.
