We've always known, on some level, that when the midichlorians were flowing between Luke and Leia's parents, both twins got a piece of the pie.
Of course, one twin (Luke) got a lightsaber and a few Jedi masters along with his slice, while Leia got a seat in government and about a million other cool jobs, all of which were, alas, saber-less.
In fact, Yoda (as a Force Ghost) straight up burns down the last remnants of Jedi teachings with glee, because it doesn't matter.
Of course, those fans who've read the canonical books released alongside the films probably saw Leia's big move coming a mile away.
In the book, author Chuck Wendig writes: "There are even moments when she can feel the battle unfolding around her in space — invisibly, as if all of it is a warm stream in which she has dipped her hand."
