Fans all over the world are still coping with the tragedy that suddenly lost Carrie Fisher in the last week of 2016, but on the “Star Wars” series, there have also been behind-the-scenes discussions about how to advance Leah organ in new movies. One option that has been rumored to be using the CGI version of Leia, but Lucas Films today assured the fans that it will not happen. This is their statement as follows.

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.
