The Cast of 'Stranger Things' Gets a Star Wars Makeover
With the recent death of film legend and icon Carrie Fisher, there is a gaping hole left to be filled in the Star Wars universe. It's been rumored that Fisher finished filming for Star Wars: Episode VIII before she passed away, but it looks like we have a new potential Leia waiting in the wings for the future. Enter Millie Bobby Brown—better known as Eleven from Stranger Things.

At last year's Rhode Island Comic-Con, Brown was quoted as saying "If they made—I think they are making another Star Wars—I would love a role in that because I want to do something far from Eleven or Madison." Brown added that she would most want to play a young Princess Leia. And once those words were spoken into existence, they set off a chain of events that ended in the most glorious piece of crossover fan-art we've ever seen:


Artist Michael Maher Jr. was inspired to make this epic piece after hearing Brown's Star Wars-themed dreams. But not only did he draw Millie Bobby Brown as the Leia she always wanted to be, he was also kind enough to include the rest of the Stranger Things cast as supporting characters: Lucas becomes Lando, Will becomes Luke, and of course, Mike is Han Solo wielding a blaster. Maher Jr. even added Dustin in as a lovable Chewie. 

Hands down, it's much, much better than the nightmarish fan-made Rogue One poster where everyone's face is replaced by Jar Jar Binks.
