Bail Prestor Organa is a fictional politician and a recurring character featured in the Star Wars multimedia franchise. He was first referenced in the 1977 feature film Star Wars, later given the full title of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The character of Leia Organa identified him only as "My father". He made his first actual introduction in 1981 in the Star Wars: The Original Radio Drama where he was voiced by Stephen Elliott. Bail made his first live-action appearance in the 2002 prequel film Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones where he was played by actor Jimmy Smits. Smits reprised the role of Bail Organa for the sequel, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and for the stand-alone film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Bail Organa was a senator from the planet Alderaan. He was active during the waning days of the Galactic Republic, and was one of those who were secretly opposed to the growing power of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. During the Clone Wars, he kept a close eye on Palpatine's actions, and was cautious about the Chancellor's usage of his emergency powers. Following Palpatine's execution of Order 66 in 19 BBY, Organa fought to preserve the crumbling Republic. He assisted Jedi Masters Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi in hiding the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. While Kenobi took infant Luke Skywalker to Tatooine, Bail offered to raise Leia Organa as his own daughter. Bail Organa died when Alderaan was destroyed by the Death Star in 0 BBY.
