So sad. Rest In Peace, Princess Leia.
I wonder what will become of her character in Episode 9. Will they find a new actress, write her out of the story, kill the character, use CGI and existing footage? Time will tell. It's too bad she won't be able to finish off the new trilogy.
I wonder if all of these actors have that in their contracts for these movies.

Rewrites, with reshoots likely to stage her death. If I had to bet, inadvertently by her son, which would prompt his way back to the light side. Just a guess but it is how I'd write it.
Going the CGI route is likely too risky for Disney, given that they see the SWU existing beyond Ep. 9. The potential blow back (even if the CGI is stellar) is huge.
Yeah. So what? Well known that she struggled with depression and substance issues. I hope the former is the focus, rather than the latter. From what I've seen in comments so far - a whole world of hypocrites are jumping on the addict angle. I know many, many people who's tox reports would read the same. She was a user. She was a sufferer. Shame she died. Let her rest. Let her gifts to the world not be sullied by a toxicology report.
