Impact of Carrie Fisher's Death on Future 'Star Wars' Films Unclear

The actress had already completed her work in "Episode VIII."

The actress, who was perhaps best known for playing Princess Leia -- later General Leia -- in the "Star Wars" films, died on Tuesday at the age of 60.

A rep for Lucasfilm told ABC News that there was no information available as to how or if her death will affect future "Star Wars" movies.

Fisher had already completed her filming for "Star Wars: Episode VIII," which is slated to hit theaters late next year.

“We just need to tell everybody to keep the prayers up because the doctors are doing everything they can for her right now,” he said. “She’s a real survivor and always has been and I would expect the best from this. That’s how we’re approaching it.”

"Carrie was one-of-a-kind ... brilliant, original," he said. "She lived her life, bravely. ... My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her."
