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!
