Carrie Fisher became an instant sex symbol to "Star Wars" fans when she was put in a gold bikini for "Return of the Jedi!" But in the wake of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," there was new controversy over her old outfit. Disney got worried that the outfit is too R-rated — which had Carrie using some X-rated words!
Comic book artist J. Scott Campbell was one of several insiders who revealed Disney's problems with Princess Leia's "slave costume" from when she was imprisoned by Jabba The Hutt. "You will NOT see any future merchandising featuring the slave outfit ever again. Trust me."
"Carrie thinks that's crazy," a pal told The ENQUIRER. "The entire point of the slave costume is that Leia is wearing it when she finally kills Jabba the Hutt with her own chains — and then she keeps saving the day! Also, Carrie says that's the sexiest she ever got to get on screen. Her only other sexy scenes were playing a MILF with Patrick Dempsey in 'Loverboy,' and being jailbait with Warren Beatty in 'Shampoo!'"
But industry insiders say that Disney is worried about both Carrie's classic hot bod and selling anything that glamorizes slavery. "We all saw it coming," said a merchandiser who's developed "Star Wars" products. "But as a geek, I really feel sorry for Carrie. She could've been the sexiest Disney Princess ever!"
