Princess Leia - one of the Disney princesses?

Now that Disney has purchased the Lucasfilm empire, we're all wondering if Princess Leia is going to be officially added as one of the Disney Princesses. I think it would be cool especially if they add Princess Leia and Queen Amidala. I'd like to take a picture with Princess Leia, especially is Disney let's her walk around the park in her slave bikini outfit with the hair buns.

I kind of doubt it, although I've seen a couple of funny fan art pieces placing Leia with the other princesses. Not to say Leia won't be in the parks ever--that's certainly a possibility. But I really doubt Disney will market her as a "Disney Princess." That brand is aimed at a different market.

The slave bikini outfit and the one with the hair buns are two different outfits from two different episodes.

I doubt she'll be added as one of the princesses, though.

Yup. I know that. I'm just saying that would be the best of both worlds.

Gotcha. I think it would be a bizarre hybrid!

It probably would be. If Disney does add Princess Leia, I'm sure they would never have her dressed as slave bikini Leia and let her walk around the Disney parks like that. Too many parents would complain and that would be the end of it. I think having her walk around in her white outfit with the buns would be more likely.

I feel like technically she is a Disney Princess, but not branded with the Disney Princesses. I feel like she will be like Giselle, but in the parks more.

Do you think they'd let me audition for the role?

I doubt that she will be added in the Disney Princess line up. I can't see her wandering around Cinderellas Royal Table She might be in the parks more but she won't be added to the regular princess line up. It's quite a different demographic they are aiming for.

Simply stated, Disney is not going to put a live-action character from a film they didn't make in to their classic princess line-up. To think there is a chance of it seems a bit silly haha.

That being said, let's continue with more of the photos please, haha

My thoughts exactly.

Leia already IS a Princess. But, I don't think she'll ever be "official".

I saw this youtub video today and it made me think of this thread. It's the Disney princesses welcoming Leia to the Princess family.
