In a post on Instagram, Larson shared a photo of herself wearing Jedi robes and wielding a lightsaber. The background is edited to appear like some sort of Imperial ship. "The category is: JEDI REALNESS," she wrote in the caption.
"The Force Is Strong With This One!!! Midi-chlorians off the charts!!" her co-star Samuel L. Jackson, who played Mace Windu in the Star Wars prequels, agreed in the comments.
On the press tour for Captain Marvel, Larson expressed her desire to play a Jedi Knight. "It’s so cool. I wish I was a Jedi," Larson said in the February interview.
When Jackson pointed out that diehard fans that become very invested in you once you take on such a role, she didn't appear fazed at all. "I got to hold his lightsaber! He brought it to me on set on May the 4th, and I cried. It was so cool. I wanna be a Jedi," she added. This new photo brings her just another step closer to making her dream a reality.
