This is such good news to hear — and so smart of Lucasfilm to address it publicly.

After lots of rumors swirled around fan sites and social media this week, Lucasfilm has issued a relatively rare statement concerning the future of Carrie Fisher's Star Wars character after the actresses' death late last year.

In a statement posted yesterday to StarWars.com, Lucasfilm let everybody know that out of respect for Fisher's legendary work and the meaning she holds in the hearts of fans, her character will not be digitally re-created — at least, for now — in a future Star Wars franchise.

Here's the statement (below):

"We don't normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address. We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher's performance as Princess or General Leia Organa. Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars."

Nice!

Obviously, we suppose Lucasfilm choosing to say they have "no plans" to re-create Fisher's performance could mean that, some time in the future, they might change their mind.

But it's a very sweet and nice gesture that they would go this far and be so open about it now, in honor of Fisher after her untimely heart attack and death right around Christmas last month.

R.I.P., Carrie — you will forever live on as Leia in the minds and hearts of all!!
