The Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries, Disney’s most recent addition to the Star Wars canon, has already given us a lot of thrills when Obi-Wan Kenobi met his old Padawan, Darth Vader, but the two of them are not the only interesting characters in the series. An unexpected heroine was embodied in Leia Organa, Vader’s daughter, whose years before she became the leader of the Rebellion were usually perceived to have been boring. We know that her and Obi-Wan’s story shaped the plot of Obi-Wan Kenobi and in this article, we are going to tell you whether the two of them have met again after the events of the series.
Telepathy, or the Second Sight, is a very powerful tool in the hand of a powerful Force user. Weak-minded individuals or individuals who are not strong in the Force have difficulties resisting a Force user’s attempt at reading their minds, but since Leia is the daughter of Anakin Skywalker – a fact Reva is, of course, not aware of – she was able to resist the Third Sister’s attempt at reading her mind.
This article is going to be dedicated to Obi-Wan Kenobi and his adventure with Leia in the Star Wars universe. At this moment, we have to say that we know very little about Disney’s plans for the two characters, but we are going to give you as much information as we can under the current circumstances, i.e., with the information we have.
Does Leia meet Obi-Wan Kenobi after the final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi?
In all honestly, before the show started, we had been under the impression that Leia never met Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first place. Yet, Disney retconned that part as well and it seems that the two of them had quite the adventure together. Now, as for the rest of their shared story, it doesn’t seem like the two would meet again, but this is an answer you should take with much reserve, as Disney might decide to change the story once again. As for the current canon, this is what happened to Leia after Obi-Wan Kenobi and before A New Hope.
As Princess of Alderaan, Leia Organa learned from an early age what it means to be responsible. Thanks to traditional classes, she learned all about Alderaan culture, galactic politics, and royal manners. She was also taught the art of diplomacy and rhetoric by her aunts, which would help her in later years.
Although Leia was very intelligent, it was not easy for her to pay attention to this theoretical knowledge and her special status as a royal personality in all situations of her everyday life. As a young girl, she could not sit in a classroom for long without feeling constrained. With her restlessness, she was much more interested in letting action speak for itself.
It wasn’t long before her parents noticed this trait and took it into account accordingly. Although they could not spare their daughter the many lessons, they gave her the opportunity to bring her energy and drive to the art of self-defense. As a member of the royal family, Leia was in constant danger of being kidnapped or threatened.
Through her combat training, she learned how to defend herself in an emergency rather than relying solely on the services of her bodyguards. Combat training was a welcome change from the mandatory diplomacy and dance classes that Leia was required to attend. Here she learned how to use a blaster, how to defeat an attacker in a one-on-one combat and how to control a jet ski and other vehicles.
She also learned how to operate small spaceships from her mother. Her father traveled a lot as Bail served as both a Senator in the Imperial Senate while secretly building the rebellion against the Empire.
Nevertheless, Bail was a great role model for the young princess. From him she gained her unshakable sense of right and wrong. As a teenager, Leia began to realize the level of injustice that came with the rule of the Galactic Empire. While core worlds like Alderaan went almost entirely unmolested, planets in the Outer Rim were stripped of their resources with no regard for the native populace in order to fuel the Imperial war machine.
Concerned and frustrated by this fact, Leia turned to her father, who let her in on his secret plan. Along with Senator Mon Mothma and other influential figures, Bail Organa had already established a viable and growing underground movement to resist the Empire’s oppression. Leia was immediately enthusiastic about this endeavor and agreed to join this movement and support her father.
In one of her first missions in this matter, Leia delivered much-needed starships to the rebel cell led by Hera Syndulla on the distant planet Lothal. Leia had to be extremely careful with this, as the Empire already suspected that Alderaan was providing spaceships to the rebels. Had the Empire received evidence of this, Alderaan would lose his seat in the Senate and Leia’s father would be arrested for treason.
For this reason, Leia traveled to Lothal under the pretext of wanting to deliver important supplies to the starving civilian population. Once there, she had the corvettes stolen by the rebels, which worked despite extensive imperial protective measures. With that, it appeared that the Imperial forces under the command of Lieutenant Yogar Lyste had failed and Leia had fallen victim to a rebellious encroachment.
As you can see, there is no mention of Obi-Wan Kenobi in this brief overview of Leia’s story. This indicates that the two did not meet again until Ben Kenobi’s death, but we also did not know about the abduction incident in the first place. Before Obi-Wan Kenobi, it was believed that Leia only knew of Ben Kenobi through her father but with Disney retconning that, it doesn’t seem impossible that another retcon might appen in the future. As far as things stand now, Leia and Obi-Wan have not met after Obi-Wan Kenobi, but the future might change.
