‘Star Wars’ Fans Petition for Meryl Streep to Replace Carrie Fisher in Episode IX9 months ago by Sheryl McFadden in Movie News
The new Star War Trilogy Star Wars: The Last Jedi did have some tragedy, the legendary Carrie Fisher died shortly after filming her role in the movie. This all before she was able to work on Episode IX, which had been reported that It was to be centered around General Leia.
It has been up to debate between fans of how Leia will live on, many are open to recasting her role. Cinemablend.com reported “The idea of anyone besides Carrie Fisher playing Leia Organa feels like sacrilege to most Star Wars fans, but there is a twist. Instead of just any actress taking on the role, a new fan petition is hoping that none other than Meryl Streep will inherit Leia’s hair buns in the future. Considering she’s the most celebrated actor of all time, outraged fans should at least feel good about the choice made by those fans.”
Who else could step up to the role General Leia? Let us know in the comments.https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2395531/star-wars-fans-start-petition-for-meryl-streep-to-replace-carrie-fisher-in-episode-ix
