Star Wars Rumor: Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie to play a young Leia?

July 1st, 2014 by Jake Tanner 1 Comment

With so much speculation on Star Wars Episode VII’s release date, name, etc. floating around the rumor mill is in full buzz as rumors are coming in that Carrie Fisher’s (better known as Princess Leia) daughter, Billie Lourd, has been cast in the film for her resemblance to her mother. Word is she’ll be playing Leia in flashback sequences throughout the film.

This is definitely a rumor but an intriguing one for those of us eagerly anticipating the film. What are your thoughts on this potential casting and the possible use of flashbacks in the next Star Wars film? Leave your opinions in the comments below!

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
