    Re: Is Princess Leia an OFFICIAL Disney Princess Now?

    Funny enough.. None of the princesses in the park are animated, and no one complains when they meet them, that they look nothing like their 2D self. So I'm assuming Leia would fit in just fine in that respect.

    Geesh, now there's a PTSD-inducing thought! I can hardly wait for the Howard the Duck ride.

    Corporate Disney: "hey Leia, get up on this float, here, we have a princess dress for you...you know how to wave and humor small children, right?"
    Leia: (turns slowly to stare at Corporate Disney, with that withering glare only Carrie Fisher can do)
    Corporate Disney: Or...um...here. Of course you can just walk around Tomorrowland. With your blaster? Sure. I'll just hide in this corner. Please don't hurt me.

    I think the one issue is that people KNOW the Star Wars characters as specific actors -- even all the Star Wars tie-ins, books, merch et al illustrates Luke as Mark Hamill, Leia as Carrier Fisher, et al. That's perhaps tied to the characters a lot more strongly than it is with other live-action characters like Mary Poppins. IMHO in order to be successful they would need to cast actors who really resemble Hamill/Fisher/Harrison Ford as much as possible.

    Sorry. I would never consider Leia in the same class as Disney princesses. Marvel has its own princess characters too. But I wouldn't classify them in that same class either.

    Shes already appeared as a character at the Studios in Orlando along with many other Star Wars characters. Have a look at this Star Wars at Disney Character Central

    However I really really doubt she'll ever be an 'Official Disney Princess', she's not going to pop up at the new Fantasy Faire, or join Snow White and Cinderella in any parade.

    I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror...

    In a way but I doubt she would start showing up as part of regular Disney princess events.

    To run with the Jar Jar tangent -- I would love to get a picture with a Jar Jar character, just to make fun of it! The guy who plays him better wear a cup and some body armor, though, because I'm sure the most requested pose will be punching Jar Jar

    Wait. Since Disney owns Iron Man, does that make Captain America an OFFICIAL Disney Princess?

    We haven't seen Howard the Duck yet, why would we suddenly see him now?

    Disney owns the rights now... therefore making her a princess under the Disney name. Will she be on par in the parks with other classical princesses, I think not. I don't think much will actually change in that aspect.

    Re: Is Princess Leia an OFFICIAL Disney Princess Now?

    Maybe they could add a booth at the JTA that would open to reveal an animatronic Jabba the Hutt watching the show with his entourage (including Leia in chains). After the JTA show is over, Jabba could be seen napping, and Leia could then conduct a meet and greet.

    When it is time for the Leia CM to take her break, Jabba could wake up, she would strangle him with her chain, and one of the Jedi trainers could come and cut the chain with their light saber, leading Leia off to the backstage area where she could grab a diet coke at the CM cafeteria ...

    I wouldn't mind, Be it she wears that alluring slave outfit or the white outfit.
