47

I'm very saddened to hear about the passing of Carrie Fisher,

[she] drowned in moonlight, strangled by [her] own bra.

This is how she wanted it to be reported...

In all seriousness she was an inspirational figure both on and off the silver screen, best known as Princess Leia, championing mental health as well as working as a script doctor and novelist.

She will be remembered.

Wherever you are, may the force be with you.

As an update, Lucasfilms have stated they will not recreate Carrie Fisher digitally for future films.

    On the plus side, principal filming for Star Wars 8 has been completed. It's possible that Carrie may ride again. – Valorum Dec 27 '16 at 21:23

    @Valorum at least they'll have time to to write it into Star Wars 9.... – AncientSwordRage Dec 27 '16 at 21:25

    I'd be surprised if they hadn't totally killed her character off in the next film. Her role in VII was basically a cameo – Valorum Dec 27 '16 at 21:28

    She was inspirational in real life as well as on screen. I'm sure we are all sorry that she died, but is there a question here? – Blackwood Dec 28 '16 at 1:02

    @Blackwood Meta on SFF is also a place where important, community-related events are discussed, including deaths of SFF icons in our time. Perhaps a new question about how we, as a community, utilize meta is worth the ask? – user31178 Dec 28 '16 at 7:40

    To the person who voted to close, I find your lack of faith disturbing.... – AncientSwordRage Dec 28 '16 at 11:01

    It makes it even funnier, coming from a mod… – OldBunny2800 Dec 28 '16 at 19:24

  • @AncientSwordRage - you do realize the irony, right? Motti was 100% right about Vader - Vader's Force powers, indeed, were not enough to either retrieve the stolen plans (even when said plans were right in his grasp on Millenium Falcon), or gave him clarivoyance to find the Hidden Fortress...err Rebel base (it was found by attaching a technological non-Force tracker to Millenium Falcon). – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 28 '16 at 21:39

    @DVK-in-Florida it was an attempt at humour, please direct all discussion to the meta post Valorum linked. – AncientSwordRage Dec 28 '16 at 21:46

    @AncientSwordRage - I know. I just can't let a Star Wars inaccuracy stand :) I commented on that post - the reasoning "for" is based on logical fallacy (popular!=ontopic). I don't feel strongly enough to post an actual answer arguing that. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 28 '16 at 21:50

    Question reopened by Moderator: Since previous memorial posts of significant figures in the science fiction and fantasy arenas have been allowed, this one is allowed as well, reported as she asked it to be. – Thaddeus Howze Dec 29 '16 at 0:40

    Did she write any science fiction or fantasy novels or scripts? – user14111 Dec 29 '16 at 10:02

    @user14111 she was a fantastic script doctor. – AncientSwordRage Dec 29 '16 at 10:15

    phoenixnewtimes.com/content/printView/6636095 - this interview says she punched up one of the prequels as well as rewrote some of her own dialogue in Jedi – NKCampbell Dec 29 '16 at 14:26

The post about Leonard has a bunch of pictures of him. Thought Carrie should get the same treatment.

Guide the princess, the Force shall. In peace, rest, she may.
