It is the actress Vivien Lyra Blair who would have this enormous task of taking over the iconic role of Carrie Fisher.
The info isn’t official, but it makes perfect sense. According to the site American Cinelinx, who claims to keep the info from several reliable sources, the actress Vivien Lyra Blair, crossed in particular in Bird Box on Netflix, would have been chosen to play a child Princess Leia, in the series Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, currently filming for Disney Plus.
No confirmation from Lucasfilm or the platform, but that would make sense, since the show aims to fill in the blanks between Episodes III and IV. The story will take place 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, when Obi Wan sent to separate the twins from Darth Vader, leaving Leia to Senator Organa and sending Luke to his Uncle Owen on Tatooine. The two kids will therefore be ten years old in the Disney Plus series.
And Cinelinx specifies that Leia will even be an integral part of the story ofObi wan kenobi. She would be the one who would spark the momentum of the series and the new adventure of the Jedi Master. For now, no casting info regarding little Luke.
