On December 18, 2015, millions of fans around the world experienced a resurgence of a franchise when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened at the box office. Set approximately 3o years after the destruction of the second Death Star (Return of the Jedi or Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi), Disney and Lucasfilm hoped to bring the franchise back to prominence, a prestige lost after the second trilogy ended with lackluster fanfare back in 2005. Also, they hoped Star Wars: The Force Awakens would bring international appeal to China and other Asian territories given the fact it is officially their first Star Wars film.
Needless to say but the Star Wars craze is still going strong even two months after its opening at the box office. One way fans are showing their love for the epic space opera is implementing it into causes or other franchises, especially Disney. With that in mind, cosplayers have combined the Official Disney Princesses with Star Wars, creating a “force” nobody can deny. That’s right! Disney Jedi and Sith Princesses now exist!

According to Fashionably Geek, Fat Man Photography had a photoshoot with cosplayers Elizabeth Rage and Amber Arden as “Star Wars” versions of Disney Princesses, Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Snow from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Rage, who cosplayed as Jedi Belle, sported a yellow outfit reminiscent of the dress Belle won when she danced with the Beast. Other pictures taken show Rage levitating the enchanted rose and wielding a lightsaber shaped like Lumière, the man who was transformed into a candelabra in the animated movie. Arden on the other hand cosplayed as Sith Snow, complete with Snow White-inspired sith gown and poison apple.
For Elizabeth Rage, it should be noted this isn’t the first time she’s posed for a photoshoot combining the Official Disney Princesses with the Star Wars franchise. Rage was also part of a shoot in which Belle, Elsa, Pocahontas, and Mulan were in custom-tailored Slave Leia bikinis as shown on her official Instagram account. Rage once again cosplays as Belle and joins Ashlynne Dae who cosplays as Elsa from Frozen, Hendo who cosplays as Pocahontas from Pocahontas, and Rian Synnth who cosplays as Mulan from Mulan.
Elizabeth Rage also cosplayed as Jasmine from Aladdin in a Slave Leia bikini too, all part of a couples shoot with Leo Camacho who cosplayed as a Han Solo Aladdin. And if we are sticking to Disney-owned franchises in general, Rage also has an affinity to cosplay as Marvel characters, especially Black Cat from Spider-Man.
Ultimately, the chances of Disney directly supporting Elizabeth Rage, as well as the other people involved in combining the Official Disney Princesses with the Star Wars franchise, are likely slim. That does not however make it any less awesome. It is evident “The Force” is strong with them.
