Disney has confirmed that Princess Leia toys will soon be on the shelves of the Disney Store.

The news follows a #WeWantLeia Twitter campaign bemoaning the lack of Leia in the new Star Wars action figure line-up, which features the likes of Darth Vader, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.

“The current assortment of Star Wars products at the Disney Store launched earlier this year, and is just the beginning of what is to come,” Disney spokeswoman Margita Thompson told TIME.

“We’re excited to be rolling out new products in the coming months, including several items that will feature Princess Leia, one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars galaxy.”
