People Want to Make Princess Leia An Official Disney Princess

The petition already has over 50,000 signatures

After Carrie Fisher’s sudden death last month, a group of Star Wars fans have started a petition to make her character, Princess Leia an official Disney princess.

The petition is asking “that the Walt Disney Corporation hold a full ceremony inducting Leia as the newest Disney princess as well as a special service in memory of Carrie Fisher.”

Apparently there are a few reasons why it may not happen, according to YouTube user Jonathan Carlin:

One of his reasons he states is that Princess Leia is portrayed by a real-life actress, which is the same reason Amy Adams’ Enchanted character was excluded from the Disney Princess club.

I’m signing it anyway. Go to if you want to sign too.
