I would be surprised of the entire sequel saga ends with Leia never showing she's had any Force or Jedi training whatsoever. It would be awesome if it's hidden, maybe for security or political purposes. It would be pretty cool if Leia is backed in to a corner at the end of Ep VIII, and her enemy is taunting her, so WHUUUM she flashes her lightsabre and takes him down with just one stroke, like a samurai.

Lol.... I like to see leia in some way use her force powers.
My only gripe in the movie was that leia and Han didn't kiss goodbye...for one last time. Other than that I loved the whole movie

I would like to see Leia at the very least force-push someone back.

Princess Leia is no longer easy on the eyes, and she lost her charm.

Part of the reason is Fisher herself has seen better days both mentally, and spiritually. She's a weak actor these days.

Disagreed on the weak actor part. I liked her in the movie.

I loved all the scenes with Han and Leia. I saw some stupid clickbait article that said their scenes were all terrible because they were given Attack of the Clones-level dialogue; I wholeheartedly disagree.

The moment I saw Leia...I had tears in my eyes. her scenes with Han were so emotional. "You changed your hair..." "Same jacket..." "Oh...new jacket..." lols besides that, the moment when Han pulls her to him and she says to him to bring Ben home...made me cry knowing what was going to happen to Han and then what was the icing on the cake, the moment Leia and Rey embraced emotional as they mourned together over Han's death. I cried so hard.

Your posts rarely have charm. Or a point.

I think Carrie played the part perfectly. There is no way that Leia wanted her life to be like this when the Empire was defeated those decades ago, and yet now she finds herself having to command yet another army against a nefarious foe, her own son, but this time almost alone, with no Han, no Luke, not even R2. In some ways, I think Carrie was able to channel her own real-life weariness into the part, effectively I might add.

The ring Leia wears on her right hand ring finger is shown multiple times in the movie (such as when Leia and Rey embrace) and the TFA Visual Dictionary. It's not explained in either. Pablo Hidalgo (Lucasfilm Story Group member and author of the Visual Dictionary) has been asked about it multiple times since the movie came out but hasn't explained it.

Some speculation is that it is a mother's ring.

USA Today - Exclusive: Read an excerpt from 'Star Wars: Bloodline'

The new novel Star Wars: Bloodline gives Leia Organa — once a princess, later a general — a story, a journey and an adventure all her own.

So what is her dad Darth Vader doing on the cover, too? Well, that's a tricky question, according to author Claudia Gray.

"I find myself remembering the Episode I posters, where you see the boy Anakin with Vader's shadow stretching out behind him," she says. "In this book, we find out just how far Vader's shadow falls."

...

Leia (played by Carrie Fisher in the movies) is professionally at a good place, as a senator and leader in a peaceful New Republic decades after the fall of Vader and the Emperor's stranglehold on the galaxy. However, Gray says that a new generation doesn't remember the lessons of the Rebellion or recognize the wrongs of the Empire, and Leia begins to see the cracks in the foundation that could lead to a dangerous future for the galaxy.

Family is a major theme overall in the Star Wars films and it plays a key role in one of the book's most significant events, "one that has pretty far-reaching repercussions for several characters," Gray says. "However, this novel isn't fundamentally about Leia as a wife, sister or mom; this is about the role she's created for herself since the fall of the Empire, and the one she takes up by the time of (The Force Awakens)."

Quote:
An entire generation has prospered during an era of peace. The New Republic, governed by the Galactic Senate on Hosnian Prime, has held power for more than two decades. Yet conflict has begun to take shape within the Senate. As political gridlock threatens to cripple the fledgling democracy, the quarrels of the New Republic will soon radiate throughout the galaxy. . .

I'll wait on the reviews, but it does look really interesting so far. I hope they delve into how exactly Leia feels about Vader.

The Hollywood Reporter - Cannes: Carrie Fisher Says 'Star Wars' Succeeded Because It's "About Family"

Quote:
“This movie’s about family, Star Wars is. That’s why it has the appeal,” Carrie Fisher said Saturday in explaining the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in which she reprises her role as Princess Leia, who’s been promoted to General Organa.

An inveterate wise-cracker, Fisher admitted she’s likened Comic-Con, the annual gathering of genre fans, to “lap-dancing for celebrities,” but in a more earnest vein she went on to say, “I go to Comic-Con because it’s an amazing thing to observe. The fans are incredible and they bring the entire family. It’s about family and that’s the most amazing thing.”

The Hollywood Reporter - Hollywood's 50 Favorite Female Characters

Quote:
2 - Princess Leia, 'Star Wars' Series

Both male and female survey takers placed Leia in the top 10 — No. 2 for women, No. 6 for men — which jibes with Fisher's own take on the character. "I was something women and men could agree on," she writes in her just-published memoir, The Princess Diarist. "They didn't like me in the same way, but they liked me with the same intensity, and we were all fine with the other sex liking me, too. Isn't that weird?"
