Carrie Fisher will NOT be in Episode IX...

It was previously reported that General/Princess/Saviour of Us All Leia Organa, aka the late great Carrie Fisher, would feature in Star Wars Episode IX using cut scenes from The Last Jedi.

However, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy (a known enthusiast of casting clones of herself in leading roles) has informed GMA that Todd Fisher must have been 'confused', as "Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine [...] But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight."

She confirmed that Carrie had completed her shooting obligations for The Last Jedi before her tragic passing in December, and that as the creative team working on Episode IX hadn't finished the screenplay yet they regrouped and "started over again" on the story so that Leia would NOT be in it.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be Carrie's final appearance as Leia Organa.
