Carrie Fisher in The Rise of Skywalker Appears For 8 Mins

Todd Fisher feels that his sister's best acting work was in The Last Jedi and that she had finally reconciled her notoriously hard feelings about the character that made her famous.

Disney and Lucasfilm announced in July 2018 that the final installment of the second "Star Wars" trilogy, "The Rise of Skywalker", would be reserved for the now-General Leia and with Lourd's blessing, would include unused archival footage from the first installment, "The Force Awakens".

Later in the interview, Todd speaks about how they used previous footage of Carrie to give her a fitting sendoff in Rise of Skywalker. They took each frame and analyzed it ... and then redesigned it and (introduced it) in the story in the right way. It's kind of magical.


Whereas we by no means received to see Leia wield a lightsaber, her Power talents have been teased in The Final Jedi throughout a scene through which she was flung out in area. Kennedy and the Lucasfilm brass were going to honor her request, and as Todd Fisher noted, Fisher would have been around the same age that Alec Guinness was when he played Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.

Lourd, who writes about how she was constantly told by her parents to do anything with her life other than acting, came into the Star Wars world as Lt. Connix in The Force Awakens and discovered that this is what she wanted to do as a career, something that Fisher also realized when seeing her daughter on set. In hair and makeup, she was given mini-Leia buns and her mom "stood in the mirror behind me and smiled like we had gotten matching tattoos". So Carrie is looking down (or sideways or wherever) and she is still part of us.

Even in comparison with Leia's roles in new motion pictures, it's tough to not image how lots larger her half can be if Fisher was even now alive. The attractive matter about the thought of the Pressure is that there is no serious demise you just exist in a further dimension. He has also praised the way director J.J. Abrams has repurposed unseen footages of her for the final movie.


"The truth is that J.J. Abrams was great friends with Carrie", said Fisher while speaking with Yahoo Movies. "It was like she had left us a gift that would allow Leia's story to be completed", she recalls - a sentiment similar to what Abrams has echoed, when he posited that Fisher offered divine consent for the unused footage to be repurposed.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker will be released nationwide on December 20, 2019.
