For the first time ever, at least to my own recollection, Lucasfilm via StarWars.com, their official website for all Star Wars content, released an official announcement on behalf of the recent rumors surrounding Carrie Fisher’s portrayal of Princess Leia/General Organa and her likeness i.e. CGI. It was simplistically heartfelt, short, and to the point — affirming that her legacy is in good hands.
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. — via StarWars.com
