She’s currently starring in the fantastically fun Ant-Man and The Wasp alongside Paul Rudd, has travelled to Middle Earth in The Hobbit trilogy and now we learn via Comic Book that she was keen to work once again with J.J. Abrams on The Force Awakens.
“When JJ [Abrams] was first announced that he was gonna do his first Star Wars film, I reached out to his producing partner, for the first time ever since LOST ended, I never requested anything ever before, and I said, ‘I wanna be Leia! Make me Leia!'”
Of course, the role of Leia in The Force Awakens was inhabited by Carrie Fisher, as it was for The Last Jedi and will be through the magic of technology and outtakes for Episode IX, but it’s great to see how excited and eager Evangeline is to be a part of the GFFA.
With Abrams returning for Episode IX, the Rian Johnson trilogy, the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss films AND the Jon Favreau TV surely there will be plenty of opportunities for Lilly to enter the galaxy.
