After the tragic passing of legendary actor Carrie Fisher last year, Star Wars fans began to wonder what the future of her character held.
Now, in an interview, Fisher’s brother seemed to suggest that she’ll be in Episode IX.
“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t. 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. She’s owned by them. You don’t mess with this legacy. It would be like rewriting the Bible. To me, Star Wars is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can’t mess with it.”
Although he doesn’t straight up say, “she’s in Episode IX,” I think it’s safe to assume that her family wants Leia’s story to continue.
Do you think Disney should find a way to put Fisher in Episode IX, or would it be disrespectful to her career? Comment below, let us know.
