Mark Hamill calls the final 'Star Wars' Movie with Carrie Fisher 'Bittersweet'

By Flora  /  30 Jul 2018 (Monday)

The cast list of the next instalment of Star Wars movie was announced a few days ago, and it is stated that the late Carrie Fisher would appear through unused footage from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. Lucasfilm confirmed that they would not be recasting the role of Leia Organa (thank god for that!) or using CGI recreation. 

Fishers’s brother, Todd Fisher told The Hollywood Reporter that J.J. Abrams played a crucial role in making that happen. When the beloved actress, Fisher, passed away in 2016, it left many fans devastated, and many were wondering how her death would be addressed in the final film of the new Skywalker trilogy. 

“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” Abrams said in a statement. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honour Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

Co-star Mark Hamill took to Twitter to share his thoughts, calling Fisher 'irreplaceable'. 

Returning to the galaxy far far away are Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd.
