I think we can all agree that The Mandalorian Season 2's jaw-dropping finale pretty much proved that Star Wars fans will never grow tired of seeing traces of the original trilogy, regardless of how "awful" the franchise has turned out to be over the last couple of years.
Luke Skywalker's goosebump-inducing comeback in The Rescue is still being talked about by many. In fact, the "return of the Jedi" (see what I did there?) has tickled the imagination of a lot of fans and it got them thinking: could other fan-favorite characters from the originals make their way to The Mandalorian and future Lucasfilm projects?
Considering Luke was able to make his epic comeback via a little motion cap and CGI magic, what if his sister Leia Organa also made a stunning cameo in a future episode of The Mandalorian? Nothing is impossible at this rate and if you were wondering which actress could pull off the feisty but uber charming Princess, this viral new deep fake answers your questions.
YouTube user Stryder HD who is known for his magnificent deep fake videos is back at it again with another brilliant work, putting Stranger Things star Millie Bobbie Brown's face on the late Carrie Fisher's body, and boy, I never knew they shared a striking resemblance until I saw the clip. Lucasfilm, I think we're onto something here. Check out the clip below:
Millie would definitely be a solid choice to play a younger version of Princess Leia, just like Sebastian Stan is the perfect guy to bring a post-Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker to life. But considering Stan and Brown's huge age gap, don't expect the Eleven actress' "potential" version of Leia to share some screen time with an older and wiser version of her brother. Now, I'm not saying it'll happen as it's all just wishful thinking at this point but let me dream.
Meanwhile, all episodes of The Mandalorian are available on Disney+.
