There is a great disturbance in the force and hundreds of angry fanboys are crying out for answers.
According to a post by IGN, the famous costume worn by Princess Leia during Return of the Jedi is being discontinued and phased out of history.
The costume in question is a golden bikini Leia is forced to wear by intergalactic gangster Jabba the Hutt after a failed rescue attempt of Han Solo.
IGN cites a Facebook comment made by comic book artist J. Scott Campbell on a post about Force Awakens actress Daisy Ridley ever having to wear a similar outfit.
Campbell wrote, “Daisy Ridley won't have to fight against anything. Disney is already well on it's way to wiping out the "slave" outfit from any future products period. You will NOT see and future merchandising featuring the slave outfit ever again. Trust me.”
When asked if he was 'serious', Campbell replied, “Very. 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.”
It's not like the outfit is popular amongst cosplayers or anything, right?
Disney has already planted the seeds of political correctness and affirmative action before this alleged censoring of the Slave Girl outfit.
Kathleen Kennedy, the president of LucasFilm has gone on record saying that an upcoming Star Wars movie will have a female director.
“It is going to happen. We are going to hire a woman who’s going to direct a Star Wars movie,” she said back in October.
Why not just hire the best person for the job? Why does being female matter?
Let's just hope that political correctness doesn't find a way to creep into the new movies and ruin them. If it does, the sequels could end up being worse than the prequels. Now there's a sentence I thought I'd never say.
