Against Me! leader Laura Jane Grace enjoyed Star Wars: The Force Awakens so much that she wants to be in the next episode! A lot of people on the planet feel the same way, certainly, but Grace actually has a shot at making it happen, thanks to a fan petition to get her in Episode VIII.

After posting an Instagram photo with a Kylo Ren mask over the weekend, Grace interacted with the official Star Wars Twitter account, which used the awesome hashtag #TrueTransForceRebel when talking to the singer. 

Then, Grace linked to an article posing the question: can LJG be in the next Star Wars film? "People are writing articles about it! Yes!!! I want to be the first Trans Jedi or Sith in the @starwars universe!!!!" she wrote.

Maybe Against Me!, which released the masterful Transgender Dysphoria Blues last year, can make a cameo as an international rock band in the next Star Wars. Episode VIII is due out in the summer of 2017.
