We learned in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that Leia actually started her Jedi training with Luke after the events of Return of the Jedi. During her training, she sensed that her son Ben Solo would die if she were to continue her training, so she stopped. In the end, it didn’t really help because he did anyway, but his sacrifice helped bring balance to The Force.
The novelization of the The Rise of Skywalker reveals some new details regarding Leia and the how she continued to receive guidance from The Force thanks to some of the powerful Jedi who passed on. An excerpt from the book revealed who those Jedi were:
“Leia was no Jedi Master, but she had learned from the best. And not just from Luke; over the years she’d occasionally heard the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi through the Force, and even more rarely, that of Yoda. Some days it had felt as though she’d learned from the Force itself.”
It’s a shame that The Rise of Skywalker didn’t actually touch on this kind of stuff. It’s pretty cool to know that Leia was having conversations with these Jedi over the years. My question is, why didn’t they tell her where Luke was so she could help him out through his hard times. If they didn’t talk to her about important stuff like that, what kind of stuff did they tell her!?
