'Star Wars: Episode IX' Cast Announced - Carrie Fisher Will Be Featured!

The Star Wars: Episode IX cast has been revealed!

Producers announced the cast for the movie, which will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, on Friday (July 27).

J.J. Abrams will direct the final installment of the Skywalker Saga, and co-wrote the movie with Chris Terrio.

Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd.

Newcomers to the cast are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant.

Veteran stars Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams will return.

Carrie Fisher will once again play Leia Organa using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII,” J.J. said.

Composer John Williams will return to soundtrack Episode IX.

The movie is set to hit theaters in December 2019.

Rogue One's Alan Tudyk Was Cursed Out by C-3PO Actor

Alan Tudyk plays the role of K-2SO in the new movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and he says he was cursed out by Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels, who played the iconic role of C-3PO.

The 45-year-old actor says he was visited by Anthony on the set of the film, where he discovered that Alan would be filming the role using motion capture rather than be put in the suit like he was years ago.

Anthony Daniels went on about the suit that he had to wear and that ‘originally they put screws in my head and they closed it and he had to be on this thing,” Alan said during an appearance on Conan. “He said, ‘Wait a minute, are you wearing an actual robot costume, or are they doing it in motion capture?’”

“And then I saw him at the premiere, I said hello again, and I said, ‘I’m going to ask you for notes when this is over, if you can please tell me how I did.’ And I saw him at the party afterwards and he came up and said, ‘f” you.’ And that’s one of the best compliments I’ve got!” Alan added.
