This Little Girl Cosplayed Jyn Erso So She Could Deliver The Death Star Plans To Princess Leia

"Well done, young rebel. Well done."

This is 5-year-old Harley and her dad Dino Ignacio. They are from Seattle, Washington.

Harley originally wanted to attend this year's Star Wars Celebration – held earlier this month – as Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but they didn't think they could bring her Falcon to Orlando, Florida, Ignacio told BuzzFeed News.

So she and her dad decided together that she would go as Jyn Erso from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story instead.

Ignacio said Harley has watched part of the movie, adding that he showed her around two-thirds of it, "you know, before it goes dark."

Ignacio said Harley has watched part of the movie, adding that he showed her around two-thirds of it, "you know, before it goes dark."

Ignacio then made several copies of the Death Star plans out of a laser engraver for Jyn Erso to deliver.

"Harley loves interacting with people so we thought delivering the plans to all the Leias we meet would be a fun thing to do," Ignacio said.

And sure enough, on the day, little Jyn Erso met lots of Princess Leias.

She successfully delivered the plans to each and every one of them.

"She was honestly more excited about carrying the plans in her vest pockets," Ignacio said. "Harley loves clothes and accessories."

She also gave a copy to R2-D2.

Oh, and she even gave the plans to Pablo Hidalgo, a creative executive at Lucasfilm and consultant on the Star Wars franchise.

Before delivering the last card to the shrine of the actual princess.

Ignacio shared the photos on Reddit and Imgur, where it really struck a chord with users.

Ignacio said he had hoped that people would appreciate the story, but was surprised to see the "amazingly positive" feedback.

"I don't think I've ever seen anything with 20,000 votes on reddit be 100% upvotes," he added.
