The Star Wars Celebration took place over the weekend. There were lots of big revelations, especially because the trailer for The Last Jedi just debuted. However, a few fans wound up a little disappointed.
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.”
That makes more sense, since Fisher already had taped parts of her role for Episode VIII.
