Carrie Fisher will Appear in Star Wars Episode XI by filmjunkee
Looks like we will see Carrie Fisher in Star Wars Episode IX after all. There was debate on whether they should CGI General Leia into the final episode, which was shot down from her base camp. Now, her brother has let everyone know that previously shot footage will be used in Episode XI.
Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t. She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue… To me, Star Wars is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can’t mess with it.
