Carrie Fisher in Star Wars: The Last Jedi revealed

Few weeks back, Todd Fisher, brother of Carrie Fisher told New York Daily News that he and Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, had given Disney and Lucasfilm permission to use the recent footage of the "Star Wars: The force Awakens" star in 2019's "Star Wars: Episode IX".

As the world still grapples with the fact that Carrie Fisher is gone, the galaxy far, far away is coming to terms with the loss of its own princess general.

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in [Episode] IX", Kennedy told ABC News from the Star Wars Celebration, where the trailer for Episode VIII: The Last Jedi debuted. The next day, to remind us all of the incredible person that Carrie Fisher was both on and off screen, Mark Hamill hosted a special panel paying tribute to the woman he referred to as his "space sis".

The actress died last December at the age of 60, after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. "As attracted as I was to her, I couldn't handle her as a girlfriend". I think every guy.

Kathleen had earlier said that the character of Leia will have a lovely performance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There's the five stages of grief, and just when I think I've gotten to acceptance, I bounce back to anger, because I'm mad.

"Wait until you see her in The Last Jedi", Hamill promised fans. Carrie was a significant part of that story - that was something she very much wanted and we very much wanted.

And the 65-year-old actor went on to praise the legendary actress for being "so committed to joy and fun". The one time they did make out, Hamill said, happened after the two got themselves into a contest over who was the better kisser of the two.
