About the Show


Looking for Leia features the stories of intergenerational and culturally diverse female fans who discuss their entry point into the Star Wars universe and the passion and creativity with which they demonstrate their fandom. The series explores expressions of fandom: The stories we tell, what we build, what we preserve, when we see ourselves, how we Carrie on, and the ways fandom transforms what we love into something new. The series reaches far beyond the legacy of Leia to examine how stories of women’s fandom speak to experiences of gender resilience and resistance.
