STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - Carrie Fisher's Daughter to Play Young Princess Leia?

Another Star Wars: Episode VII rumor has surfaced that is pretty interesting. The Daily Mail is reporting that Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, will make an appearance in the movie as a young Princess Leia. If this is true, it means we're going to see some flashback scenes in the highly anticipated film. 

Apparently J.J. Abrams picked her for the role because "of their visual similarities." I can see it a little bit, but she has no acting experience. This is all just a rumor right now. We are not reporting this as fact; the Daily Mail is though! This is just another one of those news bits that seems to spark good conversation among fans.

I could see there being a few flashback scenes to help set up the story of what we are going to see happen in the movie. Abrams likes to use flashback scenes in the movies he makes. He used them in Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek, Super 8, and Star Trek Into Darkness. So there's a good chance we'll see some kind of a flashback in Episode VII. We just don't know if they will involve Princess Leia or if Billie Lourd is really going to be a part of it.
