'Black Panther' actress Letitia Wright is "honoured" after fans online have pointed out her character is essentially a Disney Princess, as the film giants own Marvel Studios.
The 'Black Panther' actress plays Shuri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as the film studios is owned by the Walt Disney Company, fans have pointed out that she is in the iconic company.
Opening up on the technicality during the MCM Comic-con in London over the weekend, she said: "I'm so honoured, seriously. I grew up on the Disney movies and grew up with the Disney Princesses and they didn't really look like me. But now, you can go buy action figures and say 'this is a Disney Princess' - right on!"
The Disney Princess franchise officially includes Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, and Merida - but Marvel fanatics are already placing Shuri in that company.
