Fans of Carrie Fisher have launched a petition to have the late actress 'Star Wars' character officially deemed a Disney princess.
The tragic star shot to fame as Princess Leia in George Lucas' original sci-fi trilogy, and reprised the iconic role for 2015's 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'
Now fans are calling on studio bosses, who have taken over the rights to the franchise, to officially recognize Leia as a Disney princess.
Superfan Cody Christensen to convince Disney CEO Bob Iger to honour fans request, and a week after its launch, it has garnered more than 58,000 signatures towards its 75,000 goal.
The post read: "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."
