Is Disney Banning Slave Leia Bikini Merchandise?

We bet Daisy Ridley is pretty happy about this news.

Star Wars may be one of the most iconic franchises in the history of film, but that doesn't mean 100 percent of its mythology is set to stand the test of time.

While Carrie Fisher may be a household name thanks to her portrayal of Princess Leia, not everyone loves her slave costume.

The 59-year-old actress spoken out about the bikini in the past, but she's not the only one over it! Some employees over at Disney think the sexist imagery is on its way out!

Famed artist J. Scott Campbell commented on a trend he's been noticing ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, saying:

"[It's] already well on its way to wiping out the 'slave' outfit from any future products period. You will NOT see future merchandising featuring the slave outfit ever again.

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 [Slave Leia] statue killed at a major manufacturer because there will no longer be any [Slave Leia] merchandise."

That sounds pretty final to us!

Campbell has since clarified his comments saying they were just his personal opinions on the matter, but we think the fact that Disney hasn't flat out refuted what he said is a sign he may be onto something.

Are YOU happy to see the Slave Leia outfit gone for good??
