'Star Wars': Billie Lourd Shares Words Of Encouragement From Carrie Fisher

  • Colin Trevorrow is directing the movie which is eying to roll cameras in January 2018

When Fisher passed away during the end of 2016 after suffering a medical emergency, the Star Wars family and fandom was shocked, saddened and concerned about what laid ahead for the uncertain future of the franchise.

Carrie was shooting Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the time of her death, and fans will be able to see the actress one last time as her famed alter ego Princess Leia when the film hits theatres in December.

Well, thanks to an interview John Boyega did with ABC News, we now know that Lucasfilm did indeed handle Fisher's death by sending her character Leia off in what he describes as "an wonderful way".


Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.

"It sends her off in a very awesome, incredible way", he added. Fisher was especially close to her daughter, Billie Lourd, and the young American actress kept to herself for a while after the passing of her mother. That's the beauty of it: "she lives forever in a sense". It's most likely however, that he's talking about the actor's legacy. While it was confirmed that Fisher had completed filming for The Last Jedi, it was uncertain whether she would somehow appear in Episode 9 until it was confirmed by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy that Leia Organa will not be appearing in the final film in the trilogy. Brit Jack Thorne has been hired to rewrite the script penned by director Colin Trevorrow and writing partner Derek Connolly.

The Last Jedi is due out in theaters December 15.
