Princess Leia (played by Carrie Fisher), was set to appear in the upcoming Star Wars movies. However, this is now impossible, due to her death on December 27th. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Leia is set to appear in the next two Star Wars films".
"Insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter that at least two key scenes are planned for Episode VIII (Dec. 15) and Episode IX (2019): a Leia reunion with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and a confrontation with Kylo Ren”. Ever since Fisher’s death, the directors, script, and screenplay writers have been thinking of ways to make Fisher’s death a part of the Star Wars story.
