Lucasfilm Will Not Digitally Recreate Carrie Fisher For 'Star Wars'

To put an end to rumors, Lucasfilm has officially confirmed that it will not digitally recreate Carrie Fisher for 'Star Wars'.

"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," the studio says in a statement.

"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."

The statement comes after a report stated Lucasfilm was in discussions with Fisher's estate to include a re-creation of her character for future installments of the franchise.

Fans were concerned after seeing the technology on display in 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' with digital recreations of the late Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin and Fisher's character as she was in 1977's 'Star Wars: Episode IV'.
