However, LucasFilm was quick to pour water on this suggestion, insisting: "We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher's performance as Princess or General Leia Organa".
It may seem like a long time ago but it's actually 40 years since "Star Wars: A New Hope" opened in cinemas in the United States, creating a cultural phenomenon that is still as strong nowadays.
Still, we do still have Fisher's work in "The Last Jedi" to look forward to. Based on the early plot synopsis and trailer, we know that the First Order is making a power move in order to get a better position in the senate.
To help save the galaxy from Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and his ilk, Rey (Daisy Ridley) is on a mission to enlist the help of Master Jedi Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). There's also relative-newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who was introduced at Star Wars Celebration, as a "maintenance worker for the Resistance named Rose Tico". Since then, Leibovitz has taken portraits of Star Wars actors for every movie since then, including "The Force Awakens".
Famed photographer Annie Leibovits is the mastermind behind these new photos that will be showcased in Vanity Fair, and hopefully they'll provide a deeper insight into Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
