The death of the Star Wars- movies icon Carrie Fisher(known as Princess Leia in the Star Wars Universe) have made fans wonder the fate of the character in the sequel trilogy.
While all her scenes for Episode VIII are said to have been finished recorded, it’s uncear how the movie studio will handle her death for the final movie – Episode IX. In an official statement, the studio announces that there are no plans to digitally “resurrect” the actress:
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.
Will her arc end with Episode VIII? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
