    Star Wars Reporter recently caught up with Shelby Young to discuss voicing the iconic role of Princess Leia Organa in Disney's all-new micro-series 'Forces of Destiny'. Remaining true to the Star Wars canon, the stories give us a look into the adventures of some of the franchise’s greatest female leads including the beloved Leia. Read on for more.






    Star Wars Reporter has an interesting interview out this week with actor Shelby Young. Shelby is best known for her work in the hit television series Days of Our Lives, and the Oscar winning film, The Social Network. More recently, she lent her distinctive voice to Disney's all-new hit micro-series 'Star Wars: Forces of Destiny' in which she voices the legendary Princess Leia Organa.



    In this exclusive interview, Shelby spoke about how she prepared for her voice role as Princess Leia, shared her thoughts and thanks to the way fans have taken to the series and what it's like to work with executive producer Dave Filoni and his incredible animation team.

    Who's the African looking woman with the fade? ( wait a minute, above in the group pic there is a black woman; I don't know who she is and I get a negative rating? was it the way I phrased the question? anyway I'd still like to know. Did i just get hit by a SJW)

    She's been great so far as Leia, Carrie would've been proud.

    I would guess it's Saw sister but that's pure speculation.

    This is, I believe, Ketsu Oryo, a former Black Sun-employed bounty hunter, friend of Sabine Wren. She appeared in Rebels.

    Sure. "Friend". Let's go with that.

    You and I both know it's her lesbian lover.

    Maybe both? We've seen Leia and Sabine team up already, so it's possible that they might be together in one short, and apart in another.

    Just judging by the promo art, it doesn't look like they're standing right next to each other- so, if that means anything, I'd say they each get a solo round.
