Princess Leia Target of Own Political Scandal

Lucasfilm has released an attack on Princess Leia's political career and life as a leader of the Rebellion against the Empire. The attack comes in the form of a political mudslinging commercial. You can read a small excerpt from the article and see the video clip after the jump.

"Princess Leia: What Is She Trying To Hide?":

"Titled 'Princess Leia: What Is She Trying To Hide?,' the critique hits on the princess / political figure overlooking Chewbacca in 'Star Wars'' awards ceremony, and the murder of Jabba the Hutt from 'Return of the Jedi'. It also states as fact... that citizens in the 'Star Wars' universe know that Leia is NOT a blood relative of Bail Organa, but rather adopted. It doesn't mention that Darth Vader is her biological father, although it uses a visual element to conflate the two."

The video is actually a very clever ad for Author Claudia Gray's new "Star Wars" novel, "Bloodline", which features Leia Organa's activities between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens".
