Our friends at MakingStarWars.net have posted an interesting report that Disney Licensing is no longer authorizing the likeness of Princess Leia in her prisoner outfit. This edict extends to approved Lucasfilm & Marvel artist as well (confirmed by J Scott Campbell). “Slave Leia” has been the subject of much discussion over the recent past and as you can see from the image above, this particular likeness has received its fair share of merchandise* over the years.
