"Star Wars" fans are likely to watch the death of a major character in "The Force Awakens" as a leaked plot information suggests Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) will be sad due to the demise of an important person in her life.

Earlier, speculations on the seventh instalment of the epic space opera had suggested that Harrison Ford's character will be killed off by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) during a climactic space battle between the two forces.

But the latest updates indicate that the character that dies towards the end of the film could either be Han Solo or Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), according to Epic stream.

The website claimed that a popular television personality shared a major spoiler with them after his chat with a close friend and one of the supporting actors of "Star Wars" 7.

"He watched a scene being shot at Greenham common airbase in which Leia is sad and says 'I don't know how he will cope without him', my source told me Han Solo dies, I quizzed him and he said he just presumed, I then asked who was she talking to, he said a couple of Wookiees but now Chewy, I asked him could you have meant that Chewy dies, he said that might of been the case, he didn't know just that one of them does," the publication quoted the TV star as saying.

Meanwhile, a leaked photo of "The Force Awakens" featured on one of the fan sites named starwars7news.com shows an alien X-Wing pilot with a Bullhead.

But since there is no official announcement about the character, fans will have to wait for the release of the movie on 18 December to know more about the new cast member.
