Star Wars Forces of Destiny Short Reveals How Leia met Maz Kanata

Maz Kanata has been one of the more interesting new characters introduced in the new Star Wars trilogy. Ever since she debuted in The Force Awakens, fans have been curious about her and how she ended up being an ally to The Resistance. Though it doesn't answer all of these questions, the latest Star Wars Forces of Destiny short does show how Maz met Leia Organa.

As fans can see below, Leia and Maz met sometime after The Empire Strikes Back. The short reveals that Maz already knows Han Solo and Chewbacca, the latter she calls her boyfriend, just like in The Force Awakens.

The short also shows how Leia got a disguise to invade the Empire and save Han from being frozen. As expected, Leia is being hunted down by a bounty hunter and she manages to take down the foe with help from Maz. Leia eventually uses the bounty hunter's outfit to save Han.

Shorts like these are fun and help fill out any plot holes that fans might have with any of the Star Wars installments. Forces of Destiny has focused on a number of characters, including Rey and Jyn Erso, so fans of Star Wars who haven't seen it yet should do so.
