Appeared in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), which also starred Mark Hamill. It was the first time the two had appeared in the same film since Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Neither of them knew the other was involved in the project until shortly after filming had been completed. They would later reunite again in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015).

She has confirmed in her autobiography that she disliked the "bagel bun" hairstyle she wore in the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). However, prior to filming, the studio had requested that she lose some weight first, which she hadn't. Out of fear of being fired for it, she was eager to comply with everything that director George Lucas suggested, which included the hairstyle.

She wrote several novels, including the semi-autobiographical Postcards from the Edge, a thinly veiled study of the relationship between Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds. It later became the film Postcards from the Edge (1990), which starred Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine in the Fisher and Reynolds roles respectively.

In her 2008 memoir Wishful Drinking, she noted that, like her mother in Singin' in the Rain (1952), she became famous at age 19 for her role in a classic hit alongside two male co-stars. She also mentioned that the title of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) could also refer to her celebrity parents' infamous divorce.

She was longtime friends with Miguel Ferrer, who encouraged her and helped her prepare for her Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) audition. Their mothers - Debbie Reynolds and Rosemary Clooney respectively - were both best known for their performances in hit 1950s musicals: Singin' in the Rain (1952) and White Christmas (1954).

She admitted that she found it difficult to act opposite Peter Cushing in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) for two reasons: she thought the dialog was awful, and Cushing was so nice and polite to her on set between takes that she found it very difficult to show the disdain her character, Princess Leia, felt towards Cushing's character, Grand Moff Tarkin.

She was well known for her sense of humor and quick wit. One of her father Eddie Fisher's first hits in the 1950s was a song entitled "Oh! My Pa-Pa". Her father, of course, had a scandalous affair with Elizabeth Taylor and ultimately left her mother, Debbie Reynolds to marry Taylor. When Fisher and Reynolds were making a joint television appearance, Fisher quipped that her mother could sing, too, and should have written and sang a song entitled, "Oh! My Faux Pas".

As well as working as a script doctor for films, she also polished scripts for George Lucas' television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992). Lucas had directed Fisher as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) trilogy. There exists a Stars Wars script purported to be hers, which shows extensive pen and ink changes to the dialog, perhaps marking the beginning of the script doctor part of her career. Lucas later hired her to polish the scripts of the original trilogy's prequels Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999), Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002), and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005).
