Then it was time for the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” behind the scenes panel, which got off to a late start but contained some fascinating tidbits and intriguing backstage images.
However, Kennedy revealed that Fisher will not be included in the cast list of Star Wars 9.
“My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began”, Lourd said onstage. However, Kennedy ensured that we would see a lot of Leia in “Eight”, “which is great”.
With this she assured that Fisher’s role will not just be a cameo.
While “The Last Jedi” is the last Star Wars film Carrie Fisher personally filmed, recent footage of her may come to future movies. She explained, “I think not harmonious, I think it’s just that thing of. there were all these expectations on Luke right from the beginning, this is your calling, this is your thing, this is what you have to do, you have to train”.
In addition, the teaser shows numerous previous film’s heroes and villains in action, including Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
Although this event is specifically dedicated to Hamill’s memory of his co-star, Fisher was the subject of much of the first day of “Star Wars Celebration” as well.
Director Rian Johnson unveiled a teaser at the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Orlando, Florida.
“Wait until you see her in ‘The Last Jedi, ‘ ” Hamill added.
Johnson on Carrie Fisher contributing to the script: “I connected with her first and foremost as a writer. Unfortunately, Carrie passed away”, Kennedy said. That’s disheartening enough for fans on its own, but it also begs an upsetting question: Does General Leia die in The Last Jedi?
John Boyega, who played ex-Stormtrooper Finn in The Force Awakens, says the movie is “a test for all the characters but specifically for Finn…” But one of the fan-sites called Star Wars News Net claimed that the character could probably take on another journey.
“We go deeper into Rey’s story”, said Ridley, according to Variety.
