Jodie Foster could play Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars. The obstacle- and from today’s perspective it’s a bit funny- was the Disney studio.

Jodie Foster as Princess Leia

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show on the occasion of the new season of “True Detective“, the actress and winner of two Oscars admitted that when she was 13, she was offered a role in George Lucas‘ cult production . Why did she refuse?

Yes, that’s true. It was true,” Foster confirmed. “Unfortunately, I was working on a film for Disney at the time and I was under contract. The dates were irreconcilable.” Although she didn’t reveal what Disney film it was, we’re betting on “Wacky Friday” from 1976.

What’s most interesting, however, if the actress was hired, the actress would be 13 years old when production started. And fifteen when the film hit theaters in 1977. This would mean changes to the script and a supposedly known, but in practice completely different character (Leia was ultimately played by Carrie Fisher, then 19). Do you think she would do well in an iconic role?

“True Detective: Night Country”- What is the new season of the series with Jodie Foster about?

Here’s the official plot description: As a long winter night falls over Ennis, Alaska, six men working at an Arctic research station disappear without a trace. To solve this case, Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro will have to face the darkness inside them and dig out the demons hidden under the eternal ice.
