It turns out, Carrie Fisher won’t be appearing in Episode IX. Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, clarified the truth. “We were well underway with Episode IX in our thoughts,” she said. “We had not written the script yet. We’ve regrouped. We started over in January, so, sadly, Carrie will not be in nine. We’ll see a lot of her in eight.”
