LEIA has yet to be made an official Disney Princess and a petition hopes to change that.
Princess Leia would join the likes of Belle, Aurora, Snow White, Mulan and Jasmine in the line-up, and given that she's already got the royal moniker, it only makes sense that Disney makes her own of their own.
The Change.org petition was started by Cody Christensen, "because it was something that bugged me" that Disney had never made Leia one since buying the Star Wars franchise from Lucasfilm.
"Disney had princesses and Leia was a Princess," he told Geek Magazine. "Then I found out that Disney had set rules for who could and couldn’t be a princess. With Carrie’s death, I think that it’s time to change the rules."
Currently the Disney Princess title can only be given to the lead female in an animated Disney movie, who is human and hasn't been introduced in a sequel - sadly these prerequisites aren't met by Leia.
The petition is addressed to Disney CEO Bob Iger, and says:
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."

Considering that Disney are reportedly set to collect around $50 million in insurance from Carrie's death, it only seems appropriate that they give her some sort of special honour.
According to Insurance Insiders, Lloyd's of London will pay out the contingency claim to Disney who had taken out "contract protection cover" in case the late actress was unable to fulfil her Star Wars obligations.
Carrie has already completed filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII, but with Disney hoping to release a new movie expected each year for the foreseeable future, her loss will be felt for future instalments.
Fisher died on December 27, 2016, after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Hr mother, screen icon Debbie Reynolds, died a day later from a stroke.
Carrie is survived by her daughter Billie Lourd, who will appear in the next Star Wars film as Lieutenant Connix.
