Or have a voice actress impersonate her over radio comms to the X-Wings, or something.

 

I guess 2016 decided to slam the door into our collective asses as we walked into the new year.

Saw this when I walked into the gym.

Year ain't quite over yet.

I'm just bracing myself for John Carpenter, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Christopher Walken, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, and Sigourney Weaver for 2017.

Hope her role in the upcoming Star Wars movies wasn't too big.

Think she did everything she needed for Ep 8.

when George Michael died, i told you 2016 isn't done taking famous people yet... and we still have 4 days, enough for one more

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

Very sad, another very young one.  

 

Considering the amount of drugs and alcohol she consumed, she lived a long life. Still a sad affair, RIP.

She didn't breathe for ten minutes, according to reports when it happened. It was pretty unlikely she was coming back, :(

 

RIP

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Plus no matter how many reviewers call it a "triumph of special effects" Peter Cushing in Rogue One was hideous and terrifying, smack dab in the middle of the uncanny valley, like one of those horror movie scenes where the creepy girl's face suddenly gets distorted in a jumpscare but then it's like that the entire time. Gave me the creeps.

Possibly because I'm into Special Effects too. I've seen photoreal characters that stopped being convincing when they start moving before, but even before I noticed the way he moved the first thing I noticed when he came into frame was that his skin had way too much subsurface light scattering. It gave his skin a waxy, doll-like look and especially his ears and cheekbones seemed to be glowing.

EDIT: I don't mean to disrespect the special effects people, I'm sure they moved mountains to make it look this good. I'm guessing the well-publicized reshoots screwed them over on the render times needed to make it look good.

Having her in Ep 9 as a CGI construct would be very... icky for me at least. If the character of Leia cannot be written out of the story in a suitable way then re-casting is the only way to go. It sucks but there is no good options here. That is the least bad IMO. Look, it won't come as a surprise to anyone and no matter which way they go (recast, CGI, don't make Ep 9) there will be criticism.
