So Disney MIGHT be retiring the Princess Leia bikini from all movies, marketing, and merchandise. J. Scott Campbell, a Marvel comic book artist who has worked on numerous of Star Wars variant covers, commented on a Facebook post that Disney was “already well on its way to wiping out the ‘slave’ outfit from any future products period,” (referencing to Carrie Fischer’s slave costume she wore in Return of the Jedi) and “You will NOT see [any] future merchandising featuring the slave outfit ever again.”
In response to his comments, Campell also said, “I’ve heard it from two sources. We can’t even draw Leia in a sexy pose at Marvel, let alone in that outfit! We also had a 3-D SL statue killed at a major manufacturer because there will no longer be any SL merchandise.”
Keep in mind that this is just a rumor but this is breaking news for us fanboy’s and it went viral fairly quickly. Campbell had to take to Twitter just to make sure everyone knew that.
