Letitia Wright has been making waves recently for a whole host of reasons. Not only is she an incredible actress, she also has flair for fashion, and is a kick-ass rapper. As Shuri in Black Panther, she's inspired a whole generation of young girls, so it's no surprise than fans are asking for Shuri to be the next official Disney Princess. Now, Letitia has finally shared her thoughts on the matter.
In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment she said at first she thought it was a joke, but then fans persuaded her it was possible, "figuring out my qualifications for being a Disney princess, and they just owned it and celebrated it, so I was like OK, that's it, I'm a Disney princess!"
Letitia ended her interview by confirming, "Dammit, I'm a Disney princess!" With this much support from fans and Letitia herself on board too, surely it's time Marvel and Disney started taking this idea seriously too?
