Carrie Fisher Finished Star Wars Episode 8 Filming Before Death: Princess Leia to Appear in Episode 9 as CGI? [VDEO]
Carrie Fisher's death not only brought sadness and grief but also great story problems for the Star Wars new trilogy.
It is undeniable that Princess Leia Organa is a key role in both the old and new Star Wars trilogies. With Carrie Fisher's untimely death last December 27, Star Wars producers may have to rethink the whole storyline of Star Wars Episode 8 and Episode 9.
Fortunately, the late actress already finished filming Star Wars Episode 8. However, there are some speculations and rumors going around that General Organa is supposed to play a more major role in Star Wars Episode 9 than Episode 8.
As reported by Hollywood Reporter, General Organa will still have to be involved in two important acts in Star Wars Episode 8 and 9. Those acts are her reunion with her son, Kylo Ren, and her brother, Luke Skywalker.
Kylo Ren officially turned to the Dark Side after killing his father, Han Solo. While Luke Skywalker has been hiding and only appeared in the last scene of Star Wars Episode 7 "The Force Awakens"
One thing is for sure, Disney and Lucasfilm will have a difficulty pushing through with a popular fan theory that Supreme Leader Snoke's true identity is indeed Princess Leia Organa. It is said that it is Carrie Fisher aka General Leia who has been training Kylo Ren to the Dark Side of the Force.
This theory will also fulfill Anakin Skywalker's prophecy that he will be the one to bring balance to the force. That he will bring to this world the Light and Dark Sides, particularly Luke and Leia.
There are also rumors going around that Carrie Fisher will be digitally recreated to appear in Star Wars Episode 9. However, Star Wars producers already gave an official statement that this is not true.
"Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars."
Star Wars Episode 8 will hit cinemas on December 15, 2017.
