Carrie Fisher Won’t Be In “Star Wars: Episode IX”

By Creative Media Times

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed to Good Morning America that Carrie Fisher would not be in the 2019 film “Episode IX “, putting to rest all rumors surrounding the film’s production after Carrie Fisher’s death. This means that this December’s “The Last Jedi” will be the actress’ final Star Wars film.

This clarification comes a week after Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother recently told reporters that that Carrie Fisher will make an appearance in Episoe IX, and that he and Billie Lourd, Carrie’s daughter, have granted permission to use her recent footage. “He was probably confused because we finished everything in VIII, and Carrie is absolutely phenomenal in the movie. We’re so happy that we were able to complete shooting in the summer,” Kennedy said Friday.

Here’s a tribute video showing first glimpse of the late Carrie Fisher on ‘The Last Jedi’ set. The video debuted at a Star Wars Celebration currently happening Orlando, FL until Sunday.

“She was imperfect in many ways, but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect,” Billie Lourd, said at the event.
