Thats the beauty of it: "She lives forever in a sense", Boyega says. Or, you know, it could have something to do with the fact that Trevorrow was recently slated for his movie flop, The Book of Henry. And she is still kept alive in this franchise.

Boyega also discussed how he felt when he heard Fisher had died, saying he had been in Nigeria with his family at the time.

"It was a strange, strange feeling", Boyega said. That's the same approach the Fast and the Furious franchise took with Paul Walker after his untimely death in 2013.

Fisher, who first played Leia in the 1977 movie Star Wars, was to appear in "The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX".

While none of that exactly screams galactic-spanning war, Thorne is also working on adaptations of His Dark Materials and Philip K. Dick's Electric Sheep. Fans everywhere are dying to gain knowledge of even the tiniest information they can to satiate their curiosity.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed Carrie wanted more screen time.

Fisher passed away in December last year at the age of 60 after she suffered a mid-air heart attack. "Sadly, Carrie will not be in '[Episode] IX'". While some fans have complained about the fanfiction nature of Cursed Child, the overall response from audiences has been rapturous, and the show swept at the Olivier Awards this past spring. As of now, we're not sure exactly how extensive the rewrites are going to be.

Jack Thorne is a perfect person to do this.

It's reminiscent of shakeups during the production of Rogue One, as well as the recent, mid-shooting swap of directors on the Han Solo movie, although fixing issues during pre-production has a much better chance of smoothly fixing any issues.
