Podcast Stardust #233: Rebels – A Princess on Lothal – 0212

by Podcast Stardust

Princess Leia arrives on Lothal with ships from Alderaan for the Rebellion. However, they have to fool the Empire before they can make delivery.

One of the most iconic characters in all of Star Wars makes her Rebels debut when Princess Leia arrives on Lothal with a collection of cruisers from Alderaan for the Rebellion. Leia’s mission is a delicate one though, and she must carefully arrange for Kanan, Ezra, and the Rebels to “steal” the ships so that the Empire has no proof that Alderaan is aiding the Rebellion. However, the Empire is beginning to catch on to Alderaan’s schemes, and this won’t be an easy mission.

On this fully armed and operational podcast, we discuss:

  • Princess Leia’s debut on Rebels,
  • Leia’s ages and experiences as of the time of this episode,
  • What fans knew about Leia and Carrie Fisher at the time “A Princess on Lothal” aired,
  • The plan to deliver the cruisers to the Rebellion,
  • Ryder Azadi’s motivations and changing attitude towards the Rebellion, and
  • Kanan’s bold attack on the AT-AT.
