Not necessarily, though my money is on her dying in-between episodes IX and X. They will make some dumb book about it, or something. But they could use just enough of her footage to show her death in IX. I guess 2019 would be far enough removed from Fisher's actual death for it to not be in too bad taste.

i.e., cut to a viewport on a Mon Calamari Cruiser, zoom in on Leia, walking away from the view. Closeup of her with a very sad expression. Insert some tiny bit of dialogue salvaged from a viable cut scene or behind the scenes bit. Then BOOM, a volley of proton torpedoes impact the side of the cruiser, cut to the exterior and we watch the Mon Calamari Cruiser rotating on its axis as it explodes.
