The Rebel Alliance (or The Alliance to Restore the Republic) was a group of people and aliens in the Star Wars series that fought the Galactic Empire and brought back freedom and democracy to the Star Wars galaxy.[1][2] Important characters in the Rebel Alliance were Princess Leia, Bail Organa, Mon Mothma, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and C-3PO, as well as Jyn Erso, Kanan Jarrus, and Admiral Ackbar.

After the Republic turned into the Empire, small cells of rebels loosely fought the Empire, led by Bail Organa.[2] These cells later joined together into a larger Rebellion, stealing the plans of the Death Star[3] and destroying it.[4] Later, the Rebels fought again and destroyed the second Death Star,[5] ending the Empire[6] and restoring the Republic.[7] Many of the Rebels would later join the Resistance against the First Order.
