Princess Leia won't appear in 'Star Wars: Episode IX'!

Where do they go from here? "When Carrie came in, she was that character", Lucas said of casting Fisher as Princess Leia. "Both of us were like, 'Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't", he said. Johnson said her character embodies the notion that even the most unlikely person can step up and become a hero.

The art style from Eric Jones should seem familiar to fans of the original Clone Wars micro-series that aired many years ago on Cartoon Network, from animator Genndy Tartakovsky. He called Fisher "my beloved space twin" and said they were also great friends off-screen.

"She played a part that was very smart, and she was having to hold her own against two big lugs, goofballs that were screwing everything up".

Although Fisher was originally expected to appear in the ninth episode as well, Lucasfilm announced that there are "no plans" to digitally recreate her in future films.

One picture shows a shadowy Rey standing on the shore of the island where we last saw her at the end of 2015's "The Force Awakens". Ridley says in The Last Jedi, we'll find out what happens next.

His voice cracked as he read a letter he had written shortly after Fisher died in December. "And that's how I want you to think of her".

What role will Finn play in The Last Jedi? Earlier today Kennedy stated that no decision had been made about whether to include the footage or have Leia appear in some other fashion.

While this is still very much a teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there's a lot to unpack here, including a line right at the end that may or may not be a red herring.

Carrie Fisher had passed away in December 2016, only a few days after her mother Debbie Reynolds breathed her last. And yet, of one thing I'm confident: Somehow, in some way, Lucasfilm will ensure that this film is a fitting tribute.
