Millie Bobby Brown appears to have cast a spell on mostly all of us. No doubt she has super powers. The much-renowned Stranger Things famed Eleven aka El (Millie Bobby Brown) became a part of our lives in a subtle manner and now according to the speculations she might very soon become a part of none other than our favorite Star Wars Franchise.
The 18-year-old is claimed to have already met with Star Wars execs in private to discuss a possible future in the universe, which is expected to be accompanied by a multimillion-dollar agreement. Her father and manager, Robert, are reportedly already friends with franchise boss Kathleen Kennedy, which is beneficial.
Millie Bobby Brown might join Star Wars real soon
Brown has been in confidential conversations with Disney executives, including Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, about joining the Star Wars universe, according to the Mirror. The actress is presently starring in the Netflix series Stranger Things, for which she gets paid $1 million every episode. According to sources, she might earn upwards of $15 million for a potential part in Star Wars because of “how much of an icon she is already for the 10 to the 30-year-old audience and what that brings in terms of appeal.”
“Millie is on Disney’s radar for new Star Wars projects,” the Mirror’s insider added. “She’s had contact with Kathleen, who is aware of her desire to feature in a movie or play a central role in one of the new TV projects for Disney Plus.” The discussions are currently informal, and no agreements have been reached or are in the process. Both sides, however, have mutual respect and a willingness to find a solution that works for both Lucasfilm and Brown. According to the insider, “she doesn’t need to audition – it’s more a case of how the director and her bond. She has the gravitas to hold down the lead for that universe.”
Fans’ reactions to the revelation
Eleven’s fans appear to be more than just excited. They direly want her to portray Young Princess Leia on the screen. Here are some of the best tweets supporting the motion:

I hope Leia and not a Rey 2.0. She does look like a young Carrie Fisher.

Let us all hope this speculation turns into reality, like the world of Upside Down did. Brown originally gained international recognition and appreciation for her role as Eleven in Stranger Things in 2016. She has subsequently resumed her part in the popular Netflix science-fiction drama series in successive seasons, and she is expected to reprise her role as Eleven in the series’ forthcoming fifth and final season. She also featured in Netflix’s Enola Holmes as the titular female sleuth and Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister. A sequel is reportedly in post-production.
