Fans petition to officially make Princess Leia a Disney princess
Carrie Fisher’s untimely death has been deeply mourned by her loved ones and many fans. Fans desire to honor Fisher and celebrate her life through making her iconic ‘Star Wars’ character, Princess Leia, into an official Disney princess.
Cody Christensen launched the growingly popular Change.org petition that is addressed to Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger.
“After the tragic lose of Carrie Fisher, we feel that it is only fitting for Disney to do away with the rule that an official Disney princess must be animated. This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney’s new properties that is beloved by millions.” An excerpt from the petition.
