Carrie Fisher’s ‘Star Wars’ Script Expected To Fetch $50K At Auction

Listen up, Star Wars fans. This is big news. Carrie Fisher’s hand-annotated script for her Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back movie is expected to go for around $50,000 at an upcoming auction.

It’s part of a personal property auction by Profiles in History auctioneers, who will be selling off the mass belongings of both Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, who passed away (within a day of each other) last December.

Profiles in History quotes Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother and Debbie’s son, as saying:

My mother and sister were magnificent collectors, they amassed an amazing and diverse collection in their lifetimes. The size and scope of their collection rivals most museums. So in keeping with my mother’s wishes we have decided to share part of their magnificent collection with all their friends and fans.

In addition to the script, Fisher’s on-set personalized director’s chair from Return of the Jedi will be up for auction, as well as Reynolds’ dress from the “You Were Meant For Me” sequence in Singin’ in the Rain.

An equally fascinating item from Fisher’s personal collection is a bound presentation script for the original 1977 Star Wars film, A New Hope, signed by director George Lucas, who inscribed it with: “To Carrie with much love, George.” While it’s not expected to go for as much as the Empire Strikes Back script, it is expected to sell for around $30,000.

The auction is expected to run October 7 to 9.

Fans will get to see Fisher on screen one last time later this year when Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released, featuring Fisher, who was able to shoot scenes for the movie before she passed.
