  • Mark Hamill responds to news that Carrie Fisher will appear in next 'Star Wars' via old footage

They made clear it would come to fruition through some unused footage Abrams shot for The Force Awakens rather than recast or make a full CGI recreation of the actress. "She is simply irreplaceable".

Hamill also said Fisher "would love the worldwide outpouring of affection" that greeted the news she would appear in Episode IX.

Filmmaker JJ Abrams said last week that Fisher would be in the next Star Wars film to give the latest trilogy a "satisfying conclusion".

The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Fisher's co-star and close friend Mark Hamill shared his feelings about Fisher's inclusion in the next Star Wars film, calling the moment 'bittersweet.' Yeah, still crying. Making Star Wars had a leaked synopsis for The Force Awakens in 2015 which turned out to be nearly exactly on point-however, one of the missing subplots involved Leia and the Resistance getting their own super weapon to counter the advance of the First Order.
