StarWars.com released a statement Friday concerning how the franchise will move on after Carrie Fisher’s sudden death in late December.
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.
The ethical debate heated up after a CGI version of Princess Leia appeared in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
How do you think Lucasfilm should honor Fisher and continue on with Episode IX? Comment below.
