Across her career so far, Brie Larson has won an Oscar, become a YouTube star and taken flight as a Marvel superhero. But could her next port of call be to join the pantheon of Disney princesses? That’s something that’s apparently on the cards, as a new rumor points to the Captain Marvel star being in talks to play some kind of princess role in an upcoming – and currently unknown – project for the Mouse House.
This scoop comes our way via insider Daniel Richtman, who shared the intriguing bit of intel on his Patreon page. He didn’t provide any other details, but it’s a headline-grabbing rumor nonetheless. It’s unclear, though, whether Larson is being courted to star in one of Disney’s many live-action remakes of one of their animated classics, or if she could be in discussions to play a brand new royal character in an original production.
In any case, the actress obviously already has a winning relationship with the studio thanks to appearing as Carol Danvers in both Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, which together have made billions at the box office. As such, there’s no mystery as to why Disney would be keen to work with her again in a different franchise. Of course, there’s been talk before now of Larson maybe joining that galaxy far, far away, too, as we all know she’d love to be a Jedi. And if both of these rumored roles go ahead, she may tick off the rare hattrick of appearing in the Marvel, Star Wars and mainstream Disney universes.
This potential princess gig would have to be squeezed in between her MCU obligations, though, like Captain Marvel 2, coming in fall 2022, and possibly even this year’s Ms. Marvel TV series.
