Carrie Fisher, who reprises her Princess Leia role as General Leia in the upcoming Star Wars movie "The Force Awakens," says British theaters shouldn't have banned an advertisement for the Lord's Prayer from being shown before the film.

"I have no idea why they would do that," Fisher was quoted by the Daily Mail.

The ad got the OK from a government agency, but the Digital Cinema Media agency, which handles advertising for three of Britain's largest cinema chains axed the ad, saying it could cause offense.

"Offended?" Fisher said. "No. People should get a life. I don't think it is offensive to have a 'power of prayer' advert before 'Star Wars.'"

Fisher said she's never seen such an ad, but added that if a theater is like a hotel room, "then they have every right to put up a power of prayer advert. It's advertising, so it has to be advertisers that are objecting."

Fisher posted about the ban on her Twitter page and asked fans to weigh in on whether the ad was offensive.



She retweeted some fans responses, including one who said it should not be banned.
