AceShowbiz - A new casting call from the production of "Star Wars Episode IX" has found its way out online. The new casting notice seemingly suggests that Lucasfilm is seeking a new female character to join the flick that is aimed for a 2019 release.
According to That Hashtag Show, the upcoming movie is searching for an "ethnic female" with a strong preference for an African- American decent ranging from 18 to 26 years old. The actress will be playing a character named Caro, a woman who has "captivating naturalness and ease to her manner."
Caro is further described as a "leader and problem solve." She is "smart with a great sense of humor and a strong will. All this comes to her effortlessly."
Judging by the description, fans speculate if Caro will be a potential Jedi. Some others assume that Caro may be the next generation of leaders who were sparked by the heroic stand of Resistance.
Caro is not the only female character that is rumored to be joining "Star Wars Episode IX". Previously, it was said that Lucasfilm is casting a role which codename is Mara. Mara is decribed as a woman aged 40-50 years old. These two casting notices seemingly further fuel fans' speculation that the upcoming "Star Wars" movie may be focusing on previously-unseen Jedi training a new generation in the ways of the Force.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, "Star Wars Episode IX" is written by Chris Terrio and Abrams. It is scheduled to arrive in U.S. theaters on December 20, 2019. Prior to this, fans of the franchise will be greeted by Alden Ehrenreich-starring "Solo: A Star Wars Story" which will premiere on May 25 in the U.S.
