Brie Larson has had a lifelong love affair with ‘Star Wars’. Even as early on as her role in ‘Room’, she bonded with her co-stars over their shared love of ‘Star Wars’. She recently indicated on her Youtube channel that she auditioned for a ‘Star Wars’ role and didn’t get it. However, recent rumours from various sources speculate that she might be in talks for future ‘Star Wars’ movies.
- Brie auditioned for a role in ‘Star Wars’. Who could it have been?
- Is Brie suited for ‘Star Wars’?
- Would Brie be a Jedi?
The ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ tale
In a lengthy interview on the ‘Animal Talking’ show, Brie said that she auditioned for ‘Rogue One’ but she didn’t get it. Earlier, she had also come out about being rejected from various ‘Star Wars’ movies. Brie Larson’s response to Star Wars rumours has mostly been silent. However, there are indications that there might be a story moving forward.
Brie has been a lifelong fan of the movies. Posing as a Jedi on her Instagram, she strikes a very right pose for the film. As a fan and a person who has auditioned for the roles multiple times, her being in a ‘Star Wars’ movie is just a matter of time.
‘Rogue One’ might have been the best introduction for her to get into the movies, though as a solo story that existed outside the standard timeline of ‘Star Wars’, her acting chops would have come in handy. However, there might be more significant roles on the horizon for Brie. Being a part of Disney and having a prominent decision-making role in Disney means that she can direct a ‘Star Wars’ movie in the future.
There have been rumours about her appearing in ‘Star Wars’ for years. When Kevin Feige was confirmed, Brie Larson was heavily rumoured to be a part of the project. The talks have not led to further news, and the project seems delayed due to the pandemic.
Brie is fancast
Unlike in Marvel, where Brie has received harsh criticism for her role in ‘Captain Marvel,’ ‘Star Wars’ fans seem to be genuinely excited about her possibly becoming part of the movies. ‘Star Wars’ has always had an overarching liberal message, and Brie seems to fit the roles like a glove.
Brie Larson’s desire to be Jedi seems to have been echoed by a young fan who drew her as one of the main characters in a Star Wars comic.
Brie herself has plated up the rumours by cosplaying as a Jedi and being an enthusiastic member of the ‘Star Wars’ fandom. Overall, this has meant that news about her possible casting has been relatively regular.
However, the truth might be a bit difficult to follow. While Brie might leverage her position in MCU to worm her way into a ‘Star Wars’ role, she seems to be busy handling multiple projects at this moment. She has recently started directing, with her debut being ‘Unicorn Store’, and ‘Captain Marvel 2’ is filming in full force.
Could Captain Marvel be a sith lord?
Brie might be perfect for playing a Jedi in ‘Star Wars’ but she might be too busy to reprise a role right now. However, there is hope. The success of ‘Star Wars’ has been phenomenal. This has bolstered Disney’s efforts to add to the series through multiple shows and films that would cash in on the success.
However busy Brie might be right now, chances are when she is free, ‘Star Wars’ will be waiting for her with open arms.
Brie as Jedi?
Brie’s social media activity is both a perplexing and exciting phenomenon. On one side, it allows us a look into the superstar’s life behind the scenes, and, on the another, it opens her to a level of abuse that none of her co-stars face daily.
Of course, Brie, being who she is, has never backed down from the good fight. Over the years, she has backed several movements that have been key in shaping the U.S. Everything that she does, indicates that Brie as Jedi is the story waiting to be told.
Another compelling story could be her taking on the role of a Sith lord. Given the rather monotonous evil race in ‘Star Wars’, with Captain Phasma being the only female villain of note, Brie’s acting chops can lend a gravitas to the First Order that is needed. Could she be a Sith in disguise? Or are her Jedi ways set in stone? We’ll only know as the story unfolds.
Brie has a long history of loving ‘Star Wars’ and we can only hope that she takes up a character role soon. Her future in the universe remains suspect since there have only been multiple rumours and no real news. However, there’s a good chance we’ll see Carol Danvers become a Jedi sooner than later on the silver screen.
