Carrie Fisher’s Star Wars scripts offered at auction

Carrie Fisher’s scripts for each of the three original Star Wars movies are to appear in a sale at Profiles in History.

Fisher, who died in December last year, played Princess Leia in the much-loved franchise.

Star Wars Fisher

These scripts are consigned from Carrie Fisher's own collection 

Her presentation script for the first movie (A New Hope) is an early draft that still displays its working title: The Adventures of Luke Starkiller.

It’s signed by writer and director George Lucas on the title page and bound in leather. The auction house expects it to bring around $20,000-30,000.

Fisher's copy of the script for Empire Strikes Back is likely to be the real star of the sale.

This is the very one she used during shooting.

It features Fisher's own extensive annotations, including her character’s innermost thoughts at different points in the drama. At one point she writes of Harrison Ford’s character Han Solo: "I am so disappointed in you I can't even speak on it."

Fisher left acting for many years after Star Wars. She found a niche for herself as a script editor on films as varied as Sister Act and Last Action Hero.

This script represents an early demonstration of that talent. George Lucas is famous for writing derisory dialogue - something that utterly exasperated Fisher, who was forbidden to make any changes to his writing.

The lot is expected to make around $30,000-50,000.

Finally, there’s a presentation copy of the Return of the Jedi script, again signed by Lucas.
