Leia's distress call to Obi-Wan Kenobi

Darth Vader's troops captured her, where she was taken to the Death Star for questioning. She was imprisoned in a cell where she once again met Grand Moff Tarkin to ask her were the Rebel Base is. The Empire later tested their station on Leia's home planet, Alderaan. Later she was rescued by Luke Skywalker, who she was unaware was her brother, along with Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the droids C-3PO, and R2-D2. She led them to the garbage chute to escape from the Stormtroopers. After they recused her, they took her to the Rebel Base on the fourth moon of Yavin.

In 3 ABY, when the Rebels hid their base on the ice planet of Hoth, she didn't want Han Solo to leave the Rebellion. But in the end of the Battle of Hoth, she and C-3PO escaped on the Millennium Falcon with Han and Chewbacca. Later, Organa went to Bespin where she met Han's old friend Lando Calrissian, but she did not trust him. After Han Solo was taken to Jabba the Hutt by the bounty hunter Boba Fett, Organa escaped on the Falcon with Lando, Chewbacca, and R2-D2. Leia sensed that Luke was in danger, and ordered Chewbacca to fly the Flacon back to Cloud City so that they could save Luke. After they saved him they escaped from the Imperial forces.

One year later she went back to Tatooine to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt. Organa disguises herself as the bounty hunter Boushh, pretending to turn in Chewbacca to Jabba the Hutt. She later unfroze Han from carbonite. After being caught rescuing Han, she became Jabba's slave, chained to him and forced to wear a metal bikini. Leia used the chain on her neck to choke Jabba to death. After they got Han back she was on a speederbike with Luke, but she was knocked out and met an Ewok named Wicket. Later Leia found out that Luke was her twin brother. After the Empire had taken her brother to the Death Star, Organa helped Han to open the station door in the Battle of Endor. In the end of the battle, the Death Star was destroyed. She kissed Han and celebrated with the Ewoks.

General of the Resistance

Approximately 30 years after the Battle of Endor, Leia became the General of the Resistance, a military force organized to combat the First Order.
