Fans Petition To Make Princess Leia An Official Disney Princess

May the Force be with her.

While fans are still mourning the death of the iconic Carrie Fisher, it appears they are making extra steps to make sure she won't be forgotten. One way is by giving her role as Princess Leia a permanent mark on Disney.

A guy named Cody Christensen has created a Change.org petition to have Fisher's most famous character, Princess Leia, commemorated as an official Disney Princess alongside icons like Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, and Belle. (Disney, of course, now owns Lucasfilm).

In many ways, it makes sense. When George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney, Star Wars was technically put under Disney's umbrella. It's officially in the same room next to those memorable animated features, and associated with the late legendary filmmaker that Disney was named after.

So far, the petition has been backed up with over 90,000 signed supporters. As much as we are still dealing with losing Carrie Fisher and her mother, perhaps commemorating Princess Leia with the same honor as the other great Disney princesses can help us cherish her memory just a little bit more.
