“`Carrie Fisher’s death might offer dividends for the Walt Disney Company. The entertainment organization, the distributor of Star Wars:  The Force Awakens and the next two productions in the franchise, should reap $50 million, thanks to an insurance policy the company took out in the event Fisher was not able to fulfill her three-film deal. This is set to be the largest single personal accident insurance claim payout ever, according to Insurance Insider.

“`Fisher reprised her career-defining role of Princess Leia from the original Star Wars for the latest trilogy. The Force Awakens, released in December, 2015, made over $2 billion at the box office, worldwide. Principal filming on Episode VIII was already finished at the moment  of her passing on December 27th.

“`Fisher was due to appear in Episode IX, forcing the cinematic creators to either rewrite the script, or possibly, use visual effects to insert the actress into the final chapter. The technique was implemented for Rogue One, when the late Peter Cushing portrayed Grand Moff Tarkin.

“`The use of special effects to include Princess Leia could nullify a claim made by Disney;  or, at least, complicate the policy’s stipulations. We shall see if the company exhibits a smattering of decorum over this delicate situation.
