New Star Wars: The Force Awakens Images Reveal Carrie Fisher's Daughter with a Leia Hairdo
We knew that Carrie Fisher's daughter, actress Billie Lourd, was going to appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in some capacity, but we've had no hints as to her role so far. Now, we have the first pictures of Lourd's (still unnamed) character, who is sporting Leia's signature hairdo from the original trilogy:

This isn't the first time Lourd has paid homage to her mother's classic character; the relative newcomer actress just starred on Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens as Chanel No. 3, for which she wore earmuffs as an oblique reference to Leia's hairstyle. Now, it looks like General Leia has updated her look, but it's nice to know that the "cinnamon buns" will live on in her offscreen daughter.

We still don't know who Lourd's character is, although it looks like she'll be a rebel on the side of the Resistance. The above picture also features a new blue droid that we've never seen before, and while the color is a little bright, its eyes are mesmerizing. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters next week, on December 18.
