Is Meryl Streep The New Princess Leia?
The next Star Wars Movie (Besides "Solo") is set to hit theaters in 2019 and we might see a few new faces. Princess Leia was Carrie Fisher who tragically passed away. So now the question is what will Disney do with her character? They've already said the Princess will not come back using CGI so what other choice do they have besides recasting?
Han Solo will be played by a new person in the Solo movie set to come out this year so why not Leia? There's also new people playing Chewbacca and R2D2. Needless to say fans are already not happy, but Star Wars fans have been unhappy with the direction of the movies went before just look at the Most Powerful SW Character Jar Jar Binks! But who will be the new Leia?
If they decide to recast the Princess all rumors are pointing towards Meryl Streep! This would be a new direction for Streep who has stared in movies like Devil Wears Prada, Momma Mia, Into The Woods and The Post. There's even a petition to help make this happen which as of now has almost 9,000 signatures.
