Disney Planning To Purge Star Wars Franchise of ‘Slave Leia’

The measures Disney will take to rid the franchise of the infamous outfit sound very expansive, if Campbell's account is to be believed. Fortunately for hardcore Star Wars fans, the outfit will survive in some form, as Breitbart recounts:

“Campbell was asked if Disney would be editing all future versions of Princess Leia’s wardrobe in Return of the Jedi. ‘I haven’t heard anything that drastic, I think the backlash would be too big. More of a ‘quietly sweep the rest under the carpet’ kinda thing,' Campbell said.”

To understand why Disney would make such a move, one should consider this incident reported by Breitbart:

“In July, a Philadelphia father was outraged after seeing the toy version of Slave Leia, which has been around for decades, on a shelf while shopping at Target with his children.

‘That’s pretty inappropriate,' said Fred Hill. ‘I got two daughters I don’t need seeing that crap.'

Hill said his daughters asked why there was a chain around Princess Leia’s neck, to which he responded: ‘I don’t have any answers… I was just blown away looking at it.'”

So because some people have apparently been living in a cave for the past 30 years, Disney is going to censor one of science fiction's most famous icons. What a disgrace! PC kills.
