"Star Wars" - Enter 'Slave Leia'

According to reports the iconic dancing girl 'Slave Leia' character from "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi", is being pulled from all upcoming "Star Wars" marketing materials ahead of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens":

"...'Leia Organa' infiltrated the palace of 'Jabba the Hut' to free 'Han Solo' from 'carbonite'. However, she was captured by Jabba and forced to wear a skimpy dancing girl's outfit. Enslaved by the mighty Jabba, the rebel princess sat beside her new master on his dais, with a few pillows for comfort. 

"A collar with a chain attached around her neck allowed Jabba to bend her to his will, until she rebelled against him, strangling him with the very leash he used to keep her captive..."

Apparently toys produced by Hasbro, showcasing the character in her sexy slave outfit is 'upsetting' parents, who are oblivious to action figures depicting 'assassins' 'Black Widow' and 'Gamora'.

Fisher responded to the 'outrage' by tweeting :

"A Slave Leia Doll causing OUTRAGE, I'm thinking-if folks R outraged NOW, shouldnt I have been OUTRAGED 40 yrs ago? MAYBE I WAS!

"That chain only "enslaved" me until I could use the thing to KILL THAT DROOLING SWOLLEN SUPER TONGUED SLUG & whirl him off into infinity..."
