She reprised the role in'' Star Wars: The Force Awakens'' (2015), ''The Last Jedi'' (2017) — a posthumous release that was dedicated to her — and appeared in ''The Rise of Skywalker'' (2019), through the use of unreleased footage from ''The Force Awakens''.

Fisher wrote several semi-autobiographical novels, including ''Postcards from the Edge'' and an autobiographical one-woman play, and its non-fiction book, ''Wishful Drinking'', based on the play. She wrote the screenplay for the film version of ''Postcards from the Edge'' which garnered her a nomination for the BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, and her one-woman stage show of ''Wishful Drinking'' received a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Fisher worked on other writers' screenplays as a script doctor, including tightening the scripts for ''Hook'' (1991), ''Sister Act'' (1992), ''The Wedding Singer'' (1998), and many of the films from the ''Star Wars'' franchise, among others.
