Carrie Fisher Will Not Appear in 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

Carrie Fisher will not appear in Star Wars: Episode IX, despite her brother Todd‘s recent claim.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy made the unfortunate announcement during an interview with ABC News, explaining that Todd was “confused.”

“Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine. But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight,” Kathleen said.

Todd previously said that he had given Disney permission to use recent footage of Carrie for the ninth film, but it looks like this is not the case.

Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to hit theater May 23, 2019.

    “Todd previously said that he had given Disney permission to use recent footage of Carrie for the ninth film, but it looks like this is not the case.” – I think this isn’t worded correctly. It seems Todd felt she would appear in nine because he gave Disney permission to use footage of her in it. They have since decided to not include her and rewrite the script. That is why he said she would be in it. He approved them doing so.
