One of the biggest surprises in Rogue One is that a young Princess Leia was in it. Therefore when Carrie Fisher passed away last month, people wondered if they would do the same with other Star Wars movies like Episode IX. Lucasfilm broke their silence yesterday and released this 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.
That doesn’t mean they don’t plan to do it, but as of now they are not thinking about it. If they do decide to do it, I hope they honor properly and not use it as a stunt. That would be disrespectful to both her legacy and theirs.
How do you think they should do it?
Carrie Fisher passed away today at the age of 60 from the heart attack she suffered on Friday according to The New York Times.
She always has been and will always be Princess Leia from the Star Wars franchise. We loved her for that role as much as we love her what she did and said off-camera. She was an open book and as author of many autobiographies, she shared anything and everything about her life. Nothing was a secret and it was refreshing. From the good times to the bad times, she made us laugh and understand what she was going through.
She was a survivor until the end and now her legacy will live on through her movies, her daughter Billie Lourd and her dog Gary.
Today, keep her force alive by watching one of her many roles or interviews. It has I will be spending the day.
Debbie Reynolds broke her silence yesterday about her daughter Carrie Fisher to reveal that she is in stable condition after heart attack on Friday during a flight back from London.
Let’s hope she continues to recuperate because we can’t lose her sense of humor just yet. We must keep praying because the force is working to heal her.
How It Should’ve Ended changed things up by giving us a little early Christmas present. Instead of showing how a movie should’ve ended, they mashed up Chewbacca’s scenes so that it looks like he is singing the holiday classic Silent Night. I can’t be silent about how I feel about, I love it. It is the best thing to happen to our favorite Wookie since their holiday special in 1978!

Even though Rogue One takes place almost as many years as before the amount of time it has been since Star Wars has come out, a lot has changed in the galaxy of film making in that time.
Back when Anthony Daniels played the lovable droid, he actually had to get into that costume. Alan Tudyk told Conan O’Brien on his TBS late night show that when played K-2SO, they recorded his movements for Motion Capture. Which is a lot easier to do. Therefore it makes sense that when Daniels found that out, he said to Tudyk, “You Sh!t!” If the Firefly star thought those words were harsh, they ain’t nothing as compared to what happened after C-P30 saw the film. He had just two words for the newest droid in the franchise and they were F*ck and you! Can you blame him?
When it comes to Tudyk, can you believe in his lengthy and respectable career, this was first late night interview. He nailed it! Can’t wait to see him do more.
