Kathleen Kennedy confirms Carrie Fisher won't be in 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

But Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy dismissed reports that stock footage could be used in "Episode IX" to recreate Fisher's character. I'm not the only part in that equation, but I think the people deserve to have her.

The Last Jedi panel at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando featured some images of Leia as a more regal, but also grayer and more world-worn Resistance leader than the "fancy gas-station attendant" (as Fisher described herself) in The Force Awakens.

Despite the unfortunate announcement, the Lucasfilm CEO assured fans that they will be seeing more of the late Carrie in "Star Wars: Episode VIII" which is slated to hit the theaters on December 15.

Carrie died last December (16) at the age of 60, after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. "I'm trying to use you as therapy to get through this". I think the legacy should continue.

'When I think of her, she's looking down from the celestial stratosphere with those big brown eyes, that sly smile on her face, as she lovingly extends me the middle finger, ' Hamill said. "As attracted as I was to her, I couldn't handle her as a girlfriend".

Russia knew Syrian chemical attack was coming
Until Monday, U.S. officials had said they weren't sure whether Russian Federation or Syria operated the drone. Tillerson has a meeting set later Wednesday in Moscow with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Kathleen had earlier said that the character of Leia will have a attractive performance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

"I'm mad", the actor said, his voice cracking.

There's no telling where director Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connolly (who previously worked together on Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed) will take the story next - partly because we still don't know where The Last Jedi will depart Leia's story.

Kenney added they had to go through regrouping after the sudden death of the actress past year. Four days after the actress was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), her son, Billie Lourd, announced his mother's death which completely shocked the "Star Wars" galaxy.

He added: "She was so committed to joy and fun and embracing life. She's owned by them", he told the press as per Deadline. 'You're going to love her'.
