Carrie Fisher Will Not Return For 'Star Wars Episode IX'

The story changed.


Source: Leia's Carrie Fisher Is Not in Star Wars: Episode 9

Though it might seem obvious, Carrie Fisher will not be appearing in the next episode of the Star Wars saga, the currently untitled Star Wars Episode IX. Fisher, who played Princess/General Leia, passed away this past December, before filming her part in the next movie. Despite her death, there was talk about Fisher appearing in IX using previously shot footage. This was bolstered by Carrie Fisher's brother Todd Fisher said that Carrie/Leia's "legacy should continue".

However, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy is confirming that Fisher will not be appearing in the next film:

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine" … "But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight."

 

In fact, Kennedy said that the screenplay for Episode IX wasn't completed, so they started over again so that Leia would not be in the story.

 

 

 

Star Wars Episode IX should arrive in theaters in 2019.
