[ # ] Star Wars has no plans to digitally recreate Princess Leia
January 14th, 2017 under Star Wars


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?
