Carrie Fisher will have a significant role in Star Wars: Episode IX says brother

January 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

While we are still heartbroken that Carrie Fisher is gone and that her contributions to Star Wars are finished, it seems we should take heart in the knowledge that she’s got a little more to give before the new trilogy ends this Christmas.

Carrie died just over two years ago but it seems that before her death she has filmed scenes for the upcoming Star Wars Episode IX and it seems that, as we hoped, the scenes are important to the movie and will still be in there.

Speaking about his sister, Todd Fisher said that there’s still much of Carrie’s work – not just in Star Wars – to be put out there: “We have a lot of her artifacts, and a lot of things of hers that she’s written that will someday be shared. There’s a lot more to come from Carrie,” Fisher said.

As for his sister’s footage for December’s Star Wars: Episode IX, Fisher says? “There’s a lot of minutes of footage. I don’t mean just outtakes. This is unused, new content that could be woven into the storyline. That’s what’s going to give everybody such a great kick. It’s going to look like it was meant to be. Like it was shot yesterday.”

“We’re not allowed to talk about the details of anything, but we’re thrilled at what’s been done.”

Hmmmmmm… is it possible Fisher had filmed most of her scenes for the movie while filming The Last Jedi? We’re still wondering how they are going to address her death in the movie and we know that, no matter what happens, there’s not going to be a dry eye in the house.

Thoughts, gang?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
