Get a First Look during Carrie Fisher in Star Wars: Episode VIII as It’s Revealed She Won’t Be in Episode IX

This essay creatively seemed on Entertainment Weekly.

As a world still grapples with the fact that Carrie Fisher is gone, a star far, distant divided is entrance to terms with the loss of a possess princess general.

Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy tells EW the story group and filmmakers have come adult with a devise for how to hoop Fisher’s absence in 2019’s designed Star Wars: Episode IX.

The actress won’t be recreated digitally, though unfortunately, that also means Leia Organa won’t be a partial of a story.

“Obviously, with Carrie carrying upheld away, it shook everybody,” Kennedy says. As they attempted to figure out what this meant for Leia’s stability story, a usually choice was to leave their strange ideas behind. “We flattering most started over,” Kennedy adds.

There’s no revelation where executive Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connolly (who formerly worked together on Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed) will take a story subsequent — partly since we still don’t know where The Last Jedi will depart Leia’s story. (Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger recently pronounced it would not be altered to understanding with her passing, finale as it was creatively planned.)

Kennedy assures that Fisher’s work on a film entrance Dec. 15 was complete… “and she’s fantastic.”

Fisher’s brother, Todd, recently told reporters that he and Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, who has a tiny purpose in a new Star Wars films as a Resistance officer, postulated accede for aged footage of her to be used in Episode IX. But Kennedy recently told Good Morning America he might be mistaken.

The Last Jedi row during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando featured some images of Leia as a some-more regal, though also grayer and some-more world-worn Resistance leader than a “fancy gas-station attendant” (as Fisher described herself) in The Force Awakens.

It’s distressing to consider that the Star Wars star has seen a final of Leia Organa, who was brave, uncompromising, and moving to all who knew her.

Our universe mislaid a same.
