Now in worthless petition news…
After Carrie Fisher’s death, a petition has popped up to make Princess Leia an official Disney princess.
Though Star Wars was not originally a Disney product, Disney now owns Lucasfilm, so technically Leia could hang out with Ariel and Cinderella.
The petition states:
“After the tragic loss 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. This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney’s new properties that is beloved by millions.”
They aren’t asking for just a word from the Disney president to make it official, oh no. “What we are asking is 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.”
People have been holding vigils for Carrie all across the country since her death and an intimate memorial was held for family members.
So far the petition has over 55,000 signatures.
This really sounds like something that Carrie Fisher wouldn’t give two fucks about. Princess Leia is already a princess and is already one of the most well-known characters in the history of film. Making her a Disney princess adds nothing.
And do I want to see some shitty spin-off film with Leia and Pocahontas fighting off lame bad guys as they travel through time? No. The character of Leia probably wouldn’t want to hang out with any of the other princesses, since she’s been through battle, been enslaved by a fat slug monster and had her planet destroyed. That’s slightly worse than having to clean up for your stepsisters and losing a shoe. Honestly, her and the other princesses would have nothing to say to each other.
