    That would appeal to the boys but as posted many times on "Why are there no real boy Character Meals?" threads. They can't wring the same amount of cash, over all, from boys like they do for girls.

    Carrie Fischer was on a local radio station about a week ago and she was saying how she thinks it's cool that she is now a Disney Princess. I don't know how literally she meant it, but that when she was approached by Disney about how they own SW, they told her she is now a Disney Princess.

    Sounds like your pretty up-to-date. Amidala was a "Queen" but it was an elected position of some sort. Leia is a "Princess" because her father Bail Organa was of the royal bloodline of Alderan (sp?). I don't think anyone ever got more specific than that. Her being a Princess has nothing to do with her birth mother being Queen.

    Adopted Father. I don't want to get into biological vs adopted and who is her real father, but the royals usually have a pretty strict definition when it comes to birthright and titles.

    I brought up the Amidala being her birth mother for everyone who would bring up "But isn't her birth mother a queen? So its still ok." loop hole.

    But then again I would assume all her records were blown up by her real father this guy. :darth:

    Well, you are right - "adopted" father, but there is no presumption that that invalidates her "Princess" title. You are going by the rules of England - who knows what some made-up rule on a planet long ago would've been. In addition, the adoption was secret, right? So, as far as anyone knows, she is the biological daughter.

    It's all symeantics on top of being fictional. Whatever. She not going to be a Disney Princess in the sense that they'll be putting her on a T-shirt with Aurora and Jasmine.

    The adoption was never a secret. How Bail and Breha chose to adopt Leia was kept a closely guarded secret. In Dark Lord: The Rise of Lord Vader there is a tense scene where Vader is at the Alderan Palace and wants to meet Bail's new adopted daughter.

    As a die hard Star Wars geek, I'd love to see Leia and the rest of the Star Wars gang roaming around Star Tours but I won't hold my breath.

    No, she's never a Princess, although I actually think of her as one. And technically, since we don't know anything about her family, she could be a Princess. :confused3

    Maybe we're too invested in these characters :lmao:

    I wish you could still meet Giselle in the parks. Aside from Beast, she's one of my favourite Disney characters.

    I would like to see Leia kept separate from the other Disney princesses personally. She just isn't the same type of character to me. I hope that they do something fun with the characters but keep Star Wars in its own little world.
