Welcome back to another episode of Beltway Banthas! Today we discuss the newest edition to Star Wars canon, Star Wars: Bloodline by Claudia Gray. This is a book in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens that gives us a view of Leia’s political career in this time. SPOILERS will be discussed. If you are going to read the book and don’t want it spoiled, tune in another time.

What are the politics of the Republic?
How can we view the problems of the Republic as similar to our own?

How big of a scandal is Leia’s parentage? Use #VADERGATE on social media
