“After the tragic lose 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,” the petition addressed to Disney CEO Bob Iger reads. “This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney’s new properties that is beloved by millions.”
“We are big fans of the current Princess line-up, but I think that Leia is a really strong, positive, awesome role model for my girls,” he said.
More than 74,000 people have signed their names to the petition. Disney has yet to respond to their request.
