Cell 2187 was Princess Leia Organa's cell on the original Death Star. Found in Detention Block AA-23, sub-level five, an area reserved for political prisoners,[2] Organa was held here after she was captured by Darth Vader and tortured by an IT-O Interrogation Unit. Following the destruction of Alderaan, she was scheduled to be executed, but Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca effected a daring rescue.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Cell 2187" references the short film 21-87, directed by Arthur Lipsett, a film that reportedly inspired George Lucas to make the film THX-1138.

Finn's stormtrooper designation in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens is FN-2187, a reference by writer-director J.J. Abrams to this cell number in the original film.
