Iger was at a USC business and tech event today where he was asked a number of questions about his career, the future of Disney and, naturally, Star Wars.

Carrie Fisher played one of her biggest roles as Princess Leia in Star Wars. "About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories", Iger said.

Spin off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story featured characters which were digitally recreated including Peter Cushing, who died in 1994, but I ger said they will not do the same with Fisher.
