Lucasfilm Says It Has "No Plans" For A Digital Carrie Fisher

Disney has just shut down a rumor that it was negotiating with Carrie Fisher’s estate for future appearances of Leia in the Star Wars movies. I am almost positive that a handful of executives were doing cartwheels after hearing of her death and what it would mean for Episode VIII’s box office, though, so I remain skeptical.

We don’t normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address. We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess or General Leia Organa. Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars.
