Lucasfilm has provided an update about the future of the late Carrie Fisher‘s beloved character Princess Leia in upcoming Star Wars films.
Despite much speculation, the company is confirming that they do not have plans to digitally recreate Carrie in any new movies.
“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,” Lucasfilm said in a statement on Starwars.com.
They added, “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.”
