Carrie Fisher Fans Lobby Disney to Make Leia an Official Disney Princess
Fans of deceased actress Carrie Fisher — who died at age 60 on Dec. 27 — are lobbying Disney to make Fisher’s “Star Wars” character, Princess Leia, an official Disney princess.
A new Change.org petition in honor of Carrie Fisher calls for "a full ceremony inducting Leia as the newest Disney princess"
“After the tragic lose [sic] 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 and make Leia a full-fledged princess,” the petition reads. “This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney’s new properties that is beloved by millions.”
As of this writing, the petition has amassed more than 35,000 signatures, out of the 50,000 it is seeking.
