Todd Fisher, Carrie Fisher’s brother, says that the late actress will make an appearance in Star Wars: Episode IX.
Fisher told New York Daily News that the family has granted Disney the rights to utilize recent footage of Carrie for the last movie. The outlet additionally reports that CGI will not be used for her appearance.
He explained that in a conversation with Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd, they came to the conclusion that Carrie was too large a part of the franchise to not feature in the finale.
“She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue,” Fisher said.
