Carrie Fisher Had Finished The Filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII

Carrie Fisher-Harrison Ford

Carrie Fisher passed away on Tuesday at the age of 60 and left us Star Wars fans wondering what will happen to the main saga films.

Variety reports that Fisher finished her work on Star Wars: Episode VIII, Walt Disney and Lucasfilm will not have to address Fisher’s death until Episode IX begins shooting in 2018, as Princess Leia was originally slated to appear in that production as well.

Carrie Fisher has a bigger role in Episode VIII compared to her appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so one would think she would have had a sizable role in Episode IX as well.

Star Wars: Episode VIII is coming to theaters on December 15, 2017.
