Eleven of 'Stranger Things' wants to play young Princess Leia

There's no young Leia movie planned as yet, but just in case, the 12-year-old actress is making her interest known.

There are similarities between Princess Leia of Star Wars fame and Eleven, the psychokinetically gifted girl from Netflix's "Stranger Things."

Both have hidden talents and powers, are basically fearless and have been taken prisoner at various times by creepy dark souls.

So on Friday at Rhode Island Comic Con, when Millie Bobby Brown, the actress who played Eleven, was asked about what kind of role she'd like in the future, her answer made perfect sense, even if she's looking for variety at the same time.

"Princess Leia," she said, according to MovieWeb. "If they made -- I think they are making another Star Wars -- I would love a role like that. Because I want to do something far from Eleven or Madison." Madison was her role in the small-town paranormal drama "Intruders."

While no movie about Leia's early years is planned so far as we know (young Leia appears in the "Star Wars Rebels" animated series), there is going to be a young Han Solo movie digging into the past of her future husband, so we might as well hope she'll get her own film. One question remains: Does Leia like Eggos?
