Fan Launches Petition To Make Princess Leia An Official Disney Princess

Since the death of Carrie Fisher, grieving Star Wars fans have been paying tribute to the actress.

Fisher, who died Dec. 27, 2016, played the iconic Princess Leia.

Now, one fan has launched a petition on Change.org to get Leia named as an official Disney princess.

Make Princess Leia a Disney Princess

Cody Christensen, of Cedar City, Utah, started the petition.

In an interview with  Geek Magazine, Christensen said he started it after finding out Disney had rules for who could and couldn’t become a princess.

“I started the petition because it was something that bugged me since Disney bought the property,” said Christensen. “Disney had princesses and Leia was a princess.”

Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4 billion, adding the epic Star Wars franchise its library of characters.

The petition titled “Make Leia an official Disney princess” has a goal of 25,000 supporters. So far, it has garnered more than 21,000 supporters.

Right now, the full roster of official Disney Princesses include Aurora, Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel and Merida.
