LDS Man Starts Petition to "Make Leia an Official Disney Princess," Thousands Sign

After Carrie Fisher passed away on December 27—just a day before her mother, Debbie Reynolds, passed way—one LDS man thought of a unique way to pay tribute to the actress best known for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars.

Cody Christensen started a petition on change.org to "Make Leia an official Disney princess," and he already has over 59,000 supporters. 

On the petition, he writes:

"After the tragic loss 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 and make Leia a full-fledged princess. This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney's new properties that is beloved by millions.

"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."
