Following Carrie Fisher’s death last month, many Star Wars fans wondered what was going to happen to her most famous character, Princess Leia. Before her death, Fisher had already finished filming her part for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII, due out at the end of the year. Fisher was also expected to appear in Episode IX, which is still being scripted for a 2019 release. So far, there has been no word about how or if future films in the Star Wars universe will reflect the passing of the actress who gave life to General Leia Organa. Though many speculate her character would appear again as an enhanced CGI — just like in Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryStarWars.com have released an official statement:

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.
