Carrie Fisher Will Not Appear in ‘STAR WARS: EPISODE IX’
Last week, Todd Fisher, the brother of late actress Carrie Fisher revealed that she was indeed going to appear in STAR WARS: EPISODE IX.
However, Lucasfilm President spoke with Good Morning America and confirmed that she will NOT appear and that Todd “was probably confused.”
“We finished everything in VIII and Carrie is absolutely phenomenal in the movie, and we’re so happy we were able to complete filming in the summer. Unfortunately, Carrie passed away [at a] time when we were well underway with EPISODE IX in our thoughts. We had not written a script yet. But we’be regrouped. We started over again in January. Sadly, Carrie will not be im IX.”
Kennedy’s comments are consistent with a statement from Disney and Lucasfilm that was released earlier this year, that they will not plan to recreate Fisher digitally.
