Forces of Destiny Episode 5: Beasts Of Echo Base

Today’s episode turns the focus back on Leia, and does a better job of keeping her active in the center of the story. Poor Chewbacca is reenacting a Bugs Bunny cartoon with a Wampa, but the beast isn’t going to hug him and pet him and call him George. It takes Leia — and R2-D2 — to get Chewie out of a jam! (And whoever is voicing Leia does a remarkable job of sounding like Carrie Fisher.)
