Todd Fisher's Statement On Carrie Appearing In #StarWars Episode 9

Bespin refugee - July 28, 2018

Following yesterday's announcement that Carrie Fisher will appear in Star Wars: Episode 9 through the use of unreleased footage from The Force Awakens, Carrie's brother, Todd Fisher, has released a statement:

"I couldn’t be more personally thrilled and happy that our Carrie will reprise her role as Princess Leia in the new and final ‘Star Wars Episode IX,’ using previously unreleased footage of her shot for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens...

“As we, her family, as well as her extended family of fans around the world so believe, Carrie’s ‘Princess Leia’ is forever entrenched in the franchise and her indelible presence is fundamental to the film. J.J. Abrams understood Carrie’s iconic role, and he has masterfully re-crafted this final entry to include this unused and very last footage of Carrie ever taken, without resorting to CGI or animatronics. Our family and her fans will look forward with great anticipation for this one!”

Ironically, Todd revealed early last year that he and Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, had given their consent for her to appear via archived footage, only to have Kathleen Kennedy deny her appearance in the film, saying he was 'confused'.
