“No digital version of Carrie Fisher in new parts of Star Wars.”
Lucasfilm, the producer of the Star Wars film series, says that no plans exist for the recently deceased actress Carrie Fisher digital to play a role in future Star Wars movies. Caution: this post contains spoilers.
“Actually respond we never speculation from fans or from the press, but we still want a rumor debunk”, writes Lucasfilm in a statement on the official website of Star Wars.
“We want our fans to ensure that Lucasfilms has no plans for a digital version of Carrie Fisher in her role as a princess or general Leia Organa.”
The rumors about negotiations on a digital version of Fisher in the new Star Wars parts do for some time, and the round.
The technique in which a digital version of a deceased actor is created, it was already used in the Star Wars movie. Rogue One, which last december came out. Therein is actor Peter Cushing in his role as Grand Moff Tarkin.
His role was on the set played by the actor Guy Henry, and then digitally the face of Cushing’s disease on the face of Henry was placed. The technique is also applied in a scene with Fisher as a young princess Leia.
It is not the first film in which deceased actors digitally to life seem to come. In Fast & Furious 7 is, for example, a digital version of Paul Walker to see, because he died when the recordings had not yet been finalised.
Also in the movie Gladiator his scenes to see where the face of Oliver Reed on the face of another actor is placed. Like Walker, he died when not yet all his scenes were filmed.
