Episode: “RIP Carrie Fisher”
Today, we learned the devastating news of the passing of the iconic Carrie Fisher, who is the actress most famous for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars Saga.
Being a pretty big Star Wars fan, this came as a complete shock. We heard about her recent heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angelas but only read all was well afterwards and we were relieved.
With her recent role in Star Wars: Episode 7: The Force Awakens, we were looking forward to the next few movies with her in them as we enjoyed the nostalgic scenes with old characters such as hers making a franchise return.
Although the most recent appearance of Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia character in Rogue One was CGI, the film makers did an incredible job on bringing her character to the screen back when we most fondly remember her. This appearance surely brought a smile to fan’s hearts as we all know and love her character.
With episode 8 on the horizon for a release next year, we’re hoping and expecting the film will be dedicated in her honor. We now wonder if Disney will pay tribute to her in any way, or perhaps finally introduce her as a Disney Princess, even though some fans already consider her one.
2016 has been a sad year in which a lot of celebrities have been taken from us, but learning that we lost Carrie Fisher earlier today, really got to us. Sci-fi fan or not, if you’ve never seen Star Wars, please pay tribute to this amazing actress by watching the series. You won’t be disappointed.
With that being said, rest in peace Carrie Fisher. May the force be with you!
