Welcome to the Legion!

UPDATE DECEMBER 25, 2016 2:00pm PST: Carrie Fisher’s mother Debbie Reynolds has tweeted an update about our General Leia. She posted, “Carrie is in stable condition. If there is a change, we will share it. For all her fans & friends. I thank you for your prayers & good wishes.” We love you, Carrie! You can beat this! (Original story below.)

Carrie Fisher reportedly suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles Friday. The news was first reported by TMZ, though law enforcement officials have confirmed the news to NBC News, telling them her condition was “not good.” According to reports, she was taken to a Los Angeles hospital when the plane landed. Numerous passengers tweeted from the plane and THR posted that airport officials confirmed that they treated someone but could not confirm the identity. These seem to be the main sources for the story, but I’ll update as soon as I see anything more concrete.

Fuck you, 2016. My fingers are crossed that I can update this and say it’s total crap. May the Force be with you, Carrie.


UPDATE 2:36 PM PST: Variety is reporting that a spokesperson for the LAFD said paramedics were waiting for the plane’s arrival and gave “advanced life support, aggressively treated, and transported” the patient who wasn’t named to a local hospital. We’ll keep you updated on any news.
