Did You Know?


Leia was supposed to have a major role in Episode IX since she would've been the sole surviving member of the original trio, but Fisher's death nixed that. In an interview from May 2017, Kathleen Kennedy has said that Leia would've been the most important supporting character in the film, similar to Han's role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and Luke's role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017). Though Fisher's death changed the content of this film substantially and is believed to have led to Colin Trevorrow's departure, she will still have a major role to play in Episode IX as Lucasfilm will be using archival footage from The Force Awakens to integrate her into the story.
