Carrie Fisher’s personal Star Wars scripts are going up for auction in October.

Hollywood auctioneers Profiles In History are running a three-day Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds property auction in Los Angeles and includes a wealth of their personal possessions and memorabilia.

The actress, who played Princess Leia in the franchise films, died on December 27, 2016.

They are auctioning her scripts from all three of the original Star Wars films and the first made available to buy is The Empire Strikes Back.

The 158-page script even features handwritten notes, annotation, and comment by Star Wars creator and director George Lucas.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the prized piece of Star Wars memorabilia is estimated to fetch around $30,000-$50,000 (£22,000 – £37,000).

Fisher’s presentation script for 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope, signed by Lucas, is also being sold.

It features a handwritten signature, which reads ‘To Carrie with much love, George’ and is estimated to sell for $20,000-$30,000 (£12,000 – £22,000).

Also coming up for auction will be her presentation script for The Empire Strikes Back, with the front page reading: ‘Star Wars Episode Five The Empire Strikes Back. By Leigh Brackett and Larry Kasdan. From the Novel By George Lucas.’

Lucas also hand wrote a note on it which read: ‘To Carrie, May the force be with you. George,’ and is also estimated to sell for $20,000-$30,000 (£12,000 – £22,000).

Her presentation script for the Return Of The Jedi is also being sold off.

‘For Carrie. Easy to say lines, George,’ reads the inscription. The 107-page script reportedly features 13 vintage promotional stills of Fisher as Princess Leia and will also be expected to fetch $20,000-$30,000 (£12,000 – £22,000).
