The Star Wars fandom was delivered a crushing blow yesterday with the passing of the franchises iconic actress, Carrie Fisher. It will be interesting to see how Lucasfilm deals with Fisher’s passing in the upcoming stories, but at least we will all be able to enjoy her final uninterrupted performance as Leia Organa in 2017’s Episode 8.
Carrie Fisher‘s last film will not be compromised as a result of her death … TMZ has learned.
An official from Lucasfilm tells us Carrie was “absolutely wrapped” for “Star Wars: Episode VIII.”
The official added it’s too early to tell how Carrie’s passing will impact future installments of the franchise.
