Political correctness invades Star Wars: Slave Leia bikini rumoured to be retired by Disney

Rebel Staff
 

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.

What I wouldn’t give to see a slut walker wear that slave outfit…

The movie “Fan Boys”. Kristen Bell in a Slave Leia costume. Woof. ’nuff said.

The Princess Leia slave outfit will never die. Women like it too much.

The Box Office will select how movies are made. Except for CBC and the Canadian Film Industry which live off taxpayer dollars.

Disney, now there’s a scary outfit…
Google – Fantasia and the occult –
Or even – Disney and the lemmings -
Radical feminists, feminazis, mysandrysts, harridans, bullies or Marxist cows banning the bikini – the usual suspects doing the usual…
Disney, now there’s a scary outfit.

I know these militant feminists exist, but I still don’t think the word “nazi” is appropriate, especially considering there are sexist men who are just as bad as these feminist extremists, and I’ve never heard of them being referred to as nazis. Since militant sexist males are known as misogynists which means the hatred of women, a better word for these feminist extremist types is misandrist, a hatred for men.
It just bothers me when people throw nazi around like that because it trivializes the terrible things nazis have done. Pretty much nothing can even come close to that evil, the horrors that the nazis are responsible for.

Michelle – click on Lauren Southern and review the case about Greg Allen, read the transcripts, and tell me that woman isn’t a feminazi! They definitely exist!!

I agree with you, Drew, and sadly there are those types of extremists in pretty much every group that ruin the actual cause. True feminists are the ones who seek equality for both men and women in society, not anyone who thinks they’re entitled to special treatment because of certain body parts they were or weren’t born with.
Unfortunately there are also misogynists who take advantage of these extremist “feminists” and lump all feminists into that one group which they refer to as “feminazi” which is why I jumped to the conclusion that you were as well. But you’ve explained that wasn’t what you had meant, so I apologize.

Prince Knight me too, they have marketed so much crap already that i can tell they see it as merely a cash cow, they will not care about the legacy of the films. It may still be good , but i am skeptical as well.

Michelle feminazi is not a feminist, and they are wannabe dictators who prevent others form speaking and attack and block people they disagree with, they are hate filled fanatics.

My opinion won’t be popular here, but I have to say good riddance! A bikini made out of metal is neither fashionable nor practical. Besides, why couldn’t they have been fair and put Han in a gold metal speedo so girls and gay guys could have some eye candy too? Well, at least we got that butt shot with him in his tight pants in “The Empire Strikes Back” LOL!

Ugh! “Feminazi”? Comparing feminists or anything else unrelated with nazis is like those Justin fans who were throwing the word nazi around at Harper during the campaign.

Disney always butchers others’ storylines. Even back in the ‘40s and ’50s, they were modifying well known fairy tales for “more acceptable public consumption”. They couldn’t even stay true to the C S Lewis Narnian books that they made into movies. Ever since Lucas sold to Disney Corporation, I’ve had grave reservations about what Disney will do to Lucas’ ideas…

I always love a good paradox, these feminazis attack men for being errr men, then they ignore nice guys who treat them right and hook up with some ahole that treats them like garbage in too many cases. By the way lefties , sucking up and being a feminazi drone will not get you laid, they have less respect for you than they do for other men.

And the left calls us prudes. All the women i know from the swingers community laugh at this kind of stuff.
commented 2015-11-04 19:43:58 -0500
No! Don’t get rid of the bikini! That’s just wrong!

Too bad I even know a bunch of women who like to look at great T&A! ;-)
