Carrie Fisher jets into LAX after whistle-stop journey to New York to advertise Star Wars: The Pressure Awakens.

And actress Carrie Fisher has been doing her bit to promote – although it would be a surprise if anyone in the universe doesn’t know the seventh movie in the iconic sci-fi franchise opens on December 18.

The actress, who played Princess Leia in the original trilogy, certainly wasn’t dressed like royalty for her flight home, which no doubt was on an ordinary plane rather than the Millennium Falcon she’s more used to travelling on in Star Wars. Marvel Comics artist J.Scott Campbell sparked the debate when he wrote a detailed Facebook post indicating Disney would be phasing out future production. “Disney is already well on its way to wiping out the “slave” outfit from any future products period. The wave of product tie-ins started in early September, a far cry from what Fisher remembers from when she first played Leia in 1977. “More merchandise than I can imagine,” Fisher says. Fisher says the new film, which fans will start lining up for any day now, is a winner: “It’s really good.” But don’t bring your pet. “He panted all the way through it,” she said of Gary, who sat next to her in a director’s chair with his tongue hanging out. “I think it was too loud.” “I’m an actress in Hollywood over the age of 40, let’s say, and we can also say, over the age of 50, so no, you ask me to be in a movie, I’m going to do it.”

Trust me,” he went on.” “I’ve heard it from two sources,” he posted. “We can’t even draw Leia in a sexy pose at Marvel, let alone in that outfit! We also had a 3-D SL statue killed at a major manufacturer because there will no longer be any SL merchandise.” “The father who flipped out about it, ‘What am I going to tell my kid about why she’s in that outfit?’ Tell them that a giant slug captured me and forced me to wear that stupid outfit, and then I killed him because I didn’t like it.

There is no ‘more’,” she explained. “And I’m a female working in show business, where, if you’re famous, you have a career until you’re 45, maybe.
