A Star Wars fan has started a petition to encourage Disney to bring Meryl Streep on as Princess/General Leia. Some fans are hoping the role, which was previously played by the late Carrie Fisher, will be continued with a new actress rather than be written out of any upcoming films. The petition describes Streep as an “ideal candidate” who ”has always been known as one of the greatest actresses alive”. “With three Oscar wins and 20 nominations (probably 21 by next year) her achievement in acting has long been recognised,” it continued. “Apart from her acclaimed acting performances, her close relationship with Carrie Fisher and her performance in Postcards From the Edge also made her an ideal candidate to play Leia in Star Wars Episode IX.” Thousands of Star Wars fans are calling for Meryl Streep to take on the role of General Leia “As fans of Star Wars and Carrie fisher, we really want Leia to shine in Episode IX and we certainly do not want her to be written out of the film abruptly without a reasonable plot,” they continued. “Therefore, recasting Leia is a more ideal option for us and we believe that Meryl Streep is an ideal candidate to play Leia.” Read more Watch the Star Wars:… Read full this story
