The Late Carrie Fisher May End Up Having A Bigger Role In STAR WARS: EPISODE IX Than We Thought

We recently found out that J.J. Abrams plans to incorporate unused footage of Carrie Fisher from The Force Awakens into Episode IX, and we're hearing that he also plans to use scenes from The Last Jedi.

To coincide with the announcement that production had officially kicked-off on the still untitled Star Wars: Episode IX, director J.J. Abrams revealed that he would be utilizing some unused footage of Carrie Fisher's General Leia from The Force Awakens in order to give the late actress and her iconic character a proper sendoff.

At the time, we all assumed this would just amount to a couple of minutes of screen-time, but it looks like we may see more of Leia in the final installment of the Skywalker saga than we initially thought.

According to ABC News’ Clayton Sandell, Carrie's brother Todd revealed that Abrams will also be using some scenes from The Last Jedi that never made the theatrical cut:


"He (Todd Fisher) said there were big surprises coming – big surprises with this movie, this performance, and the unused footage – and said – this one is really for the fans.” “But they apparently have a number of unused minutes from both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.” “Todd and the whole family are very excited and wanted it to happen.”

Obviously fans shouldn't expect to see too much of the beloved former Princess in the film, but it does sound like Abrams may have at least found a way to make her an important part of the plot and give us all a satisfactory conclusion to Leia - and Carrie's - story.
