I have to agree with snake and Powder that 2016 shouldn't be a punchline at this point. It's been the ugliest year for myself, but in general it's been a cesspool overall. Best for us to move past it come Sunday hopefully.

As for Carrie, damn. Just damn, I'm speechless. She was a good actress and brought a lot of memories. I hope she rests easy after what happened a few days ago; best regards to her family and those who knew her well.

Nope, We were hoping she would survive after hearing she was in stable condition.

When it was said that she was recovering I though everything would be fine, but sadly not.

I barely know Fisher beyond SW, but with the little time period I've followed her on social media she've left an impression.

Rest In Peace.

I wasn't hopeful that she'd make it. Very sad news indeed.

People like to cope with **** like this by making jokes. They don't mean to offend. And if they do, screw them.

She was always outspoken and while I disagreed with her complains I respected her for it. She didn't maintain the best shape but as she said, that's who she wanted to be so I think she's happier to have gone out living her life as she wanted rather than how people wanted her to. If it hadn't been for the Sequel Trilogy we might've lost her before since she had to lose weight for that. Hammil also improved a lot. I'm sure most people aren't thinking about it but her dog is really going to miss her,s he loved and brought him everywhere. Edit: man, I guess she thought about it ahead of time since her dog made it to her obituary,s he's awesome I would do the same.

Rogue One's gonna have some week just for that ending alone.

But in all seriousness...RIP. A woman who struggled a lot, but turned that into success via her sharp wit and knack for writing. Both a cautionary tale about fame and a success story when it comes to overcoming the Hollywood snare.

"Hope"

Very sad. I feared the worst when we didn't hear updates but this is not something I expected to wake up to.

Not surprised she couldn't make it.

Only seen her in SW back in the late 90s when I was kid, but it seems she was a cinema legend, so RIP.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"

Because a movie that doesn't come out till 2019 really matters now, right?

They will. I really wonder how they're going to handle it. They're going to have to include her in some manner.

If Princess Leia survives in Episode 8, They are gonna have to do some rewrites for Episode 9 on why she's not in it, One way would be for Leia having an off screen death, The other way would be that she's still alive, but only referenced in the movie.

Either way, the new films are going to have to acknowledge her passing at some point, So far Kylo Ren is the only connective tissue for Leia and Han Solo.

Episode 8 is done already? They sure work fast. Re-writes for 9 then I guess.

Could they have filmed some stuff with Leia for Episode 8? She is credited for it, I wonder how much we'll get to see of her.

It's so sad knowing that neither Han nor Leia will see their son redeem himself.
