Billie Lourd was on the red carpet for Fox’s Scream Queens at Paleyfest on Saturday night. We’ll have a full story on Scream Queens later but we got the chance to ask Lourd about her brief appearance in theStar Wars saga. As you probably know, Lourd is Carrie Fisher’s daughter and you may have spotted her in the Resistance base scenes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But will she return for Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars Episode VIII?
So, first of all, Rian Johnson has definitely asked Lourd to appear in Episode VIII, she tells us.
“Yes,” Lourd said. “I can’t say much about it but yes.”
Another reporter on the press line even asked Lourd what is next for her, and Star Wars is the only upcoming project she brought up.
“I am working on Star Wars VIII but that’s all I can say,” she said.
Now don’t worry if you’re reading this thinking, “Who did Billie Lourd play in The Force Awakens and why is she in the next one?” She was an Easter egg to pay homage to the Fisher legacy, but her character was Lieutenant Connix. Since the former Princess Leia is now a general, Connix is in her unit. She asks her mom, “General, are you seeing this?” while Leia watches from her command center.
Wherever Johnson is taking the story, we can imagine General Leia has a need for her lieutenants. Lourd confirmed to us that her role will be bigger in Episode VIII, although not exactly how much more screen time she’d have.
“Oh yeah, yeah,” Lourd told us. “The last one was a little Where’s Waldo-y.”
Lourd knew enough to be cagey about her participation in the next Star Wars film, but also say enough with inflection that doesn’t translate into print. Our last question was would she have more scenes with her mother. Lourd’s suggestive answer implies that she very well could. She is Leia’s lieutenant, after all.
“Maaaaaybe,” Lourd said as she moved down the line.
Star Wars: Episode VIII is now filming. It will be released December 15, 2017. Scream Queens returns for season two on Fox in the fall.
Billie attended The Paley Center For Media’s 33rd Annual PaleyFest Los Angeles to talk about the upcoming season of Scream Queens. Pictures from both the arrivals and inside the event have been added to the gallery. Enjoy! Thank you missleamichele.net for a few of them!

As the news of Scream Queens‘ second-season renewal sinks in, attention shifts to which of the original stars will transition from the Wallace University to the new setting, a hospital. Unlike with his American Horror Story, where the core cast play different characters each year, the idea with Scream Queens is for the actors to continue in their original roles, Fox chairman Dana Walden said today at TCA.
As I reported this morning, Jamie Lee Curtis is fully expected to return as Cathy Munsch, anchoring the horror franchise the way Jassica Lange did for the first four seasons of American Horror Story on FX.
I hear the other actress for whom the intention is to return include Lea Michele (aka Hester), who shared her excitement on Twitter following the renewal news; Emma Roberts (Chanel); Abigail Breslin (Chanel #5); Keke Palmer (Zayday); and Billie Lourd (Chanel #3). Most of the main stars of Scream Queens are said to have multi-year deals, so re-signing should be straightforward in a majority of the cases.
Scream Queens is expected to get a whole new male cast for Season 2.
Producer Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Hotel and Scream Queens will also scare up thrills at the event, taking place March 11-20 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
The full lineup will be announced on Jan. 19. Ticket info can be found atpaleyfest.org.
