LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — A Virginia high school junior wants to see a plus-sized Disney princess on the silver screen.

Jewel Moore, of Farmville, has submitted petition urging the cartoon-based corporation to put a curvier main character in its next film.

"I made this petition because I'm a plus-size young woman, and I know many plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positivie [sic] plus-size character in the media," Jewel writes.

"It would be revolutionary for Disney to show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied by the media. It would make many young girls feel confident and worthy to see a strong character that looks like them. This move on Disney's part would have an amazing positive ripple effect in people all around the world. "

Jewel believes if Disney created a plus-sized character "who was as bright, amazing, and memorable as their others," it would make a lot of difference to girls who don't fit the skinny standard set by previous films.
