JJ Abrams, director and co-writer of Star Wars: Episode IX, recently confirmed the presence of Carrie Fisher in the film with unused footage from The Force Awakens, with the permission of his daughter, but it has just been confirmed that scenes are not used from The Last Jedi will also help shape Fisher’s participation in this project.
Who gave the new information was Todd Fisher, brother of the actress, in an appearance on The Resistance Broadcast this week. Clayton Sandell of ABC News says: “I talked to Todd Fisher today and he has been talking to JJ Abrams about it. Since the press release said only about Force Awakens, I asked him about using images from The Last Jedi and they will also be using them. “
However, some things remain secret. Sandell reveals: “I asked him how many minutes of footage they had, and he said to me, ‘I can’t tell you that!’” He said there were big surprises with this film, that performance and the unused images, and said that this is really for the fans. ”
“Todd and the whole family are very excited and wanted this to happen,” he concludes.
Star Wars: Episode IX has no official title yet, but it is expected to be the last film in the Skywalker saga, which we’ve followed since the late 1970s, and its premiere is scheduled for December 20, 2019.
