Star Wars fans have started a petition for an acting icon to play as Princess Leia in the upcoming films.

The role was previously played by the late Carrie Fisher and is an icon to the Star Wars series and acting world. 

Fans are calling on Disney and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and director JJ Abrams to replace Fisher with Meryl Streep in Episode IX.

The petition describes Streep as “an ideal candidate”, saying she “has always been known as the greatest actress alive.”
