Fisher's brother, Todd Fisher, and her daughter, Billie Lourd, gave Disney the green light to use recent, unused movie footage of Fisher as Leia for 2019's Star Wars: Episode IX.
Leia will already appear in this year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which comes out Dec. 17, since filming had wrapped before her death.
Fisher told The New York Daily News, “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.”
As Fisher also put it, “It would be like rewriting the Bible” to keep her out. We totally agree.
