Behind the scenesEdit
Leia Organa's aunts, then named Rouge, Celly, and Tia, were first mentioned in Children of the Jedi, a 1995 novel written by Barbara Hambly and published by Bantam Spectra. In that book, they were introduced as the main caretakers of a teenaged Leia Organa. However, that story is part of the Star Wars Legends continuity, formerly known as the "Expanded Universe," and is therefore not official canon. In 2015, the idea that Princess Leia had several aunts was canonized in A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy, a retelling of the classic Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope story written by Alexandra Bracken. Contrary to their Legends counterparts, the canon aunts were not named, and their number went unmentioned.
- A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy (First mentioned)
