To heck with all this talk about “mergers” and film sequels, and who gets Indy’s fedora and all that. The real question about the Disney/Lucasfilm deal that’s keeping me up at night is: IS PRINCESS LEIA NOW AN OFFICIAL “DISNEY PRINCESS”?
Let’s review the evidence, shall we?
Leia is a princess.
Disney just bought Lucasfilm and all related ideas therein.
“Star Wars” is a related idea therein.
Leia is part of Star Wars
Thus, Leia is a Disney Princess.
And, I might add, possibly the first Disney Princess with a firearm. Though Merida from “Brave” was pretty dangerous with a bow and arrow (Mulan was pretty bad-ass, too).
From my sources (a friend of a friend of a friend of an imaginary friend of a hallucination), I hear there’s one Disney Princess not too happy with all this renewed “Star Wars” publicity:
Here we have a brand-new Disney Princess, Sofia The First, and Leia has to go hijack the hype.
Yeah, sure you don’t Leia. Sure you don’t. (I’m sensing a potential Minaj/Carey situation happening here down Disneyland lane)
