Leia is one of the coolest female characters of all time.
Cocky when facing the scariest Sith in the universe, bad-ass in a battle, and she looks good enough in a metal bikini to turn C3P0's head.
Everything about Jennifer Lawrence's persona - both on and off the camera - makes her the perfect fit for this part.
And, unlike someone like Kristen Stewart, say, she's as popular with boys as she is with girls.
She's basically the Ryan Gosling of actresses - and wouldn't you like to see those two spar off against each other?
If she's not one of the first people announced, we'll be very, very surprised.
