The Princess Leia Diaries is a short comic written by Jason Hall that appeared in Star Wars Tales 11 and was collected in Star Wars Tales Volume 3.

Plot summaryEdit

Using excerpts from her diary, the story follows the experiences of Leia Organa as a young girl as she grows up in a high class society. It gives an insight to her rebellious nature and how her relationship with her adopted father, Bail Prestor Organa, sets her on the path against the Galactic Empire. It begins when she is ten years old where she complains about not being able to be herself. It continues through her young life where she exhibits all her funny pranks. The story continues to the point where she becomes the senator of Alderaan.


Behind the scenesEdit

Wookieepedia has 13 images related to The Princess Leia Diaries.

The name of this comic was possibly inspired by the Disney movie The Princess Diaries.

The incident where Leia drops a water balloon on Tarkin's head is referred to in the later Star Wars Tales story The Other, also by Jason Hall.

Though not identified in the comic itself, the redhead in Tarkin's airspeeder was identified as Daala on TheForce.Net forums.[1]
