The last work of the legendary Carrie Fisher has fans in tears

There was some confusion over whether the late Carrie Fisher would appear in "Star Wars" films after "The Last Jedi", which she filmed before her death last December.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is set to hit United States theatres on December 15.

Maybe someone at Lucasfilm needs to have a conversation with Carrie Fisher's brother?


"Sadly, Carrie will not be in 'Nine, '" Kennedy said.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy informed Good Morning America in an interview Friday that Todd Fisher must have been "confused" when he stated earlier this month that footage of his late sister would be incorporated into the final installment of the new trilogy.

The script for the sequel to The Last Jedi wasn't written yet, but the story outline was "well underway with Episode in our thoughts", according to Kennedy.


Ever since Carrie returned to Star Wars in 2015's The Force Awakens, she's been a huge success in her reprised role of Leia, and fans want more. "But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight". With her death, the team regrouped and started over in January 2017. "But given the circumstances, we would not carry on with that". Lourd and Ford collaborated on the dress, which was meant to evoke a modern-day version of her mother's famous Star Wars look. While speaking with the New York Daily News, Todd said, "Both of us were like, 'Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't".

"Unfortunately, Carrie passed away". I think the legacy should continue.
