Carrie Fisher's autopsy and toxicology results won't be immediately released, after they were placed on a security hold by the coroner.

Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter confirmed the decision, telling People Magazine that the hold prevents the coroner's office from releasing details of the reports to the public.

A security hold being placed on results is nothing abnormal when it comes to high-profile and celebrity deaths, with Whitney Houston and Paul Walker's results also withheld until a later time.

Mr Winter added that the hold on the 60-year-old Star Wars actress' results “it might come off within a couple days or next week", although he couldn't confirm a specific date.

Carrie passed away on December 27 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to LA.

Tragically, her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds died aged 84, the following day on December 28 after she suffered a reported stroke while planning her daughter's funeral.

A memorial for Carrie and Debbie will be held later this week.

On Thursday, the trailer for HBO's Bright Lights, which centred around the mother and daughter Hollywood royalty, was been released and it's a tear jerker.

The documentary looks at the relationship between the late actresses.

In the clip, Carrie talks about how Debbie going through the aging process was made more difficult because she was in the spotlight: "Age is horrible for all of us. But she falls from a greater height".

It also touches on Carrie's battle with mental illness.

"Manic depressive is a disease that was not diagnosed then. So nobody kind of knew what was going on with Carrie," said Debbie reflecting on the issue.

The mother-daughter duo were so close, they even lived next door to each other.

"I'm my mum's best friend. For than I ever would want to, I know what my mother feels and wants. There's a lot of it," Carrie said to the camera.
