Carrie Fisher's Brother Supports Her Appearance in 'Episode IX'

Todd Fisher, the brother of the late Carrie Fisher, is speaking out in support of the decision to use unreleased footage of the actress as Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX.

The film’s director JJ Abrams announced that her daughter Billie Lourd has also given her blessing.

“I couldn’t be more personally thrilled and happy that our Carrie will reprise her role as Princess Leia in the new and final Star Wars Episode IX, using previously unreleased footage of her shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Todd said in a statement to Variety.

“As we, her family, as well as her extended family of fans around the world so believe, Carrie’s ‘Princess Leia’ is forever entrenched in the franchise and her indelible presence is fundamental to the film. J.J. Abrams understood Carrie’s iconic role, and he has masterfully re-crafted this final entry to include this unused and very last footage of Carrie ever taken, without resorting to CGI or animatronics. Our family and her fans will look forward with great anticipation for this one!” he added.

Carrie Fisher Remembered By Her Family on Her Birthday

Carrie Fisher‘s daughter Billie and brother Todd are celebrating her first birthday since her passing last year.

The late Star Wars actress, who would have turned 61 on Saturday (October 21), is being remembered by her family with a moment of reflection.

“You can be sure that Billie and I will have a moment in reflection on Carrie‘s day,” Todd told E! News.

He added, “Certainly we are all still dealing with the difference of life here. It’s a substantial change in the planet when you remove Carrie and Debbie from it. It’s a huge vacuum that nobody could ever fill so you move on and you try to live your life without that presence, which, we will because we are survivors”and we were trained by Debbie.”

“I think [Billie is] doing very well. She is dealing with it remarkably. I think she’ll make a great role model in her time as well, having grown up around two amazing women. I think she is going to reflect that in her future,” Todd concluded.

Billie Lourd's Family Says Taylor Lautner is 'Like a Husband'

Taylor Lautner was a big support system for Billie Lourd in the wake of her mother, Carrie Fisher‘s, death late last year.

The 24-year-old Scream Queens actress’ uncle Todd Fisher had nothing but nice things to say about her relationship with Taylor.

“As any uncle, you’re suspicious of the guy hanging around your niece,” Todd Fisher told E! News. “She’s cute and all that. She’s had other boyfriends, good boyfriends, but I’m certainly going to give that guy the extra look-over. I don’t give a sh-t what his background is.”

“The truth of the matter is, the guy is pretty spectacular,” he said about Taylor. “He’s a really deep person, and he has supported her amazingly. He’s stepped up and acted like a husband would act. Not that that’s what’s going on, but it’s just an amazing support system for her, and I’m glad he’s in her life. That’s not easy for me to say, if you think about it!”

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.

Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds Museum in the Works!

There’s a Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds museum in the works!

Carrie‘s brother Todd recently explained that he is working on a space to honor his late sister and mother’s legacy.

“There are a lot of things that we have of Carrie‘s that we’re going to put on display in the new museum with Debbie and Carrie,” he told People.

Todd added that he even plans to recreate Carrie‘s writing room.

“So we are going to rebuild Carrie‘s writing room, and we’re actually going to put out her writings, long hand. Carrie did not use a computer. So we’re going to show people the process that she used to create….We’ll have a lot of her things, original things, so people can see how she worked,” he explained.

Todd also said that the museum will contain costumes and other memorabilia that “people don’t necessarily associate” with Carrie.
