Eleven From 'Stranger Things' Wants To Play This Classic Star Wars Hero…
The latest young Star Wars casting?
Having seen Stranger Things become one of the biggest Netflix shows of the year, and her character Eleven become the hot Halloween costume of 2016 (sorry Harley Quinn), Millie Bobby Brown is on a hot streak right now. So much so that she’s apparently got her eye on playing the biggest sci-fi heroine of them all in the form of Princess Leia!
The star was speaking at a recent comic-book convention, and revealed she’d be up for playing a younger version of the Rebel badass, should the opportunity arise. “If they made – I think they are making – another Star Wars , I would love a role like that,” she said, explaining that she’d be keen on a part that was significantly different from Eleven.
So could it happen? Well, with Disney rolling out prequel adventures for the likes of Han Solo and Boba Fett, there’s definitely scope for a standalone Leia movie, and with female leads in both Episode VII and Rogue One, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Millie making it a hat-trick. Just so long as she doesn’t bail out on Stranger Things TOO early - we need closure, dammit!
