The family was reporting she's stable just recently. Can we assume doctors confirmed major brain damage so they decided to take her off life support?
This was the point i made here the other Day.
They were saying she was stable but absolutely nothing about communication, responding to stimuli etc. Just never heard a single truly hopeful thing after the plane... from the outside looking in, i think this has been known for a few days, just waiting to make sure before letting her go.

RIP Carrie.

Stable can mean a lot of different things.

We lost them both this year.

Very sad.

Of course I can't help but wonder how this affects the movies, and I fervently hope that Luke and Leia are reunited in Episode 8.

Curious how much of the filming has been completed for VIII.

Pretty much everything was wrapped up in September as far as I know

The story about her cardiac arrest on the plane the other said that she had completed filming on episode 8.

Assuming she wasn't killed off in VIII then would they change it, reshoot, and kill her character off? I don't want her to die in a scroll of IX.

I'm sure there is still some things that might be done, but I even read today that Carrie's scenes were definitely done.

I also hope they can get Luke and Leia back together in VIII.

That said, following R1, I am decently confident in them using a limited amount of CGI if needed for Episode IX.

They may have to re-write Episode IX or pull some Rogue One magic.

Yep. About as bad as Alan Rickman.

Damn... Princess Leia's Theme got me... I'd be sweet to put that together with some of her "real life" photos as a montage

This may perhaps beg a question of TCTTS.

How much time and effort do movie (entertainment) executives put into worrying about and planning for potential disasters? Is there forethought, or do they tend to just deal with it?

Hearing the news after just getting out of Rouge One. Damn!

Infer from this what you will, but I'd say it's pretty clear what it means...

Most of the time they just deal with. There's just no way to have that many contingency plans. An old older actor no one thought would be alive for the next movie in a franchise could live years while the young star could die a car crash tomorrow.

I suspect she may have been placed on therapeutic hypothermia following cardiac arrest. Patient is cooled and heavily sedated for 24 hours, then rewarmed. Exam over the next 1-3 days tells you how much (if any) neurologic function is left.

So does this boost VIII up a few notches from a box office potential with the "last chance to see Princess Leia". It seems like when musicians pass their albums start selling better again.

Doesn't hurt.

Still. This one hurts.

RIP, Carrie Fisher. She brought so much to the series. Hope she's found peace now that she struggled to find for most of her life.

As far as 8 and 9 are concerned and at risk of being a dick, I was hoping her in involvement in 8 and 9 would be very limited, so that the this won't be a huge obstacle for 9. While it was nice to see her again in 7 and I would like to see a scene of her reuniting with Luke in 8, I thought she was one of the weak points of 7. I don't think it was all her fault by any means because I thought the dislogue was a bit rough, but she's had so much hard mileage that it was a little tough to watch.

Also very funny......roasting George Lucas with some classic Carrie Fisher self deprecating humor too....especially the finale.
