MacFarlane offered his condolences on Twitter, writing, "Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely."

Fisher had completed work on Star Wars: Episode VIII in her most famous role as Leia Organa. Production on the film wrapped up in July and is in post-production.
