Carrie Fisher Will Now Not Appear in Star Wars Episode IX

While it was suggested by her brother that Carrie Fisher would make a posthumous appearance as General Leia in Episode IX, it’s now been confirmed that The Last Jedi will be her final bow. LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed it this morning on Good Morning America. It was originally thought that Fisher might be making the episode IX appearance by her brother Todd. Either way, there’s been nothing but love for Fisher. Hopefully Todd doesn’t respond negatively to the news.

“He was probably confused because we finished everything in ‘Eight,’ and Carrie is absolutely phenomenal in the movie. We’re so happy that we were able to complete shooting in the summer. Unfortunately, Carrie passed away, so by the time we were well underway with ‘Episode Nine’ in our thoughts – we had not written the script yet – but we’ve regrouped, we started over again in January, so sadly, Carrie will not be in ‘Nine,’ but we’ll see a lot of her in ‘Eight,’ which is great.”

Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) is helming the untitled Star Wars: Episode IX with a script co-written by him and Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Filming is expected to begin this July with a likely late 2019 release date in mind. As for the cast, both Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley are expected to return
