Star Wars: Episode IX

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...icle-1.3030154

Carrie Fisher WILL be in it. Using "recent footage."

That's cool. I just hope The Last Jedi doesn't suffer for it.

Kinda laughed my ass off at this part:

So my guess is they cut a Leia scene out of episode 8 and are just going to move it into episode 9?

That was what I was thinking they'd do. Or maybe behind the scenes footage where Fisher was talking, and they have found a way to pull it off.

I can't imagine much more than her getting some standing shot with the rest of the cast at the end of the last movie, similar to the scenes at the end of Episode 4 or Episode 6 where the entire main cast was gathered around celebrating. I guess it does confirm Leia won't be killed off in-universe though.

This is my main concern.

Something tells me these films are going to have a lot more problems then whatever Leia's scenes turn out to be.

It shouldn't do. Bob Iger confirmed at the Disney shareholders meeting earlier this year that they weren't altering The Last Jedi because of Carrie Fisher's death. Which is good, it's her final completed role & it's right they leave it as is rather than try & split it over 2 films.

Episode IX however will have been re-written. Even using deleted scenes/footage from TFA & TLJ plus doubles/stand ins, voice actors for additional dialogue, any behind the scenes footage that could be repurposed, IX wasn't written and they couldn't possibly have enough footage to cover whatever her intended role was to be.

We have no way of knowing how big or small her role will be in IX right now, heck we can't even speculate until TLJ has been released. By recent footage they could meaning anything from re-using her final "May the Force be with you" from TFA as a Force Ghost to taking footage of Mark & Carrie at Celebration and CGing them into costume to create a Luke & Leia reunion (hopefully that's not needed and we get a reunion in TLJ).

I'm sure they will come up with something that, whilst not what they had planned, will allow the story to conclude in a satisfying way and, more importantly, honour the memory of someone who is beloved by so many.

Are we getting a teaser for SW Celebration or anytime soon? I believe Rogue one and Ep. VII both had teasers by now. Maybe they're aware of SW Fatigue could happen if they keep trying to hype these movies yearly with so much time in advance?

I'm sure we'll get a teaser for The Last Jedi at Star Wars Celebration, The movie comes out this year, so that's a given.

They'll follow the same pattern they used for TFA and Rogue One. Teaser in April, behind the scenes reel in July and a full trailer late summer/early fall.

The Last Jedi panel at Celebration is Friday so expect the teaser online around 12:30 est.

This is probably the worst decision they could have made.

Putting fanservice ahead of story is a bad idea.

Ironically Carrie Fisher wouldn't have given a damn if they CG'd her or used her in any way in Episode IX, she would've liked having it done.

I'm fine with them doing this and it makes perfect sense, better than killing her off for no reason off screen.

Is it that, though? It seems the opposite. They obviously intended to have Leia in Episode IX. The actress dying between shooting episodes forces them to throw out the whole intended creative playbook. Coming to an agreement on including actual Fisher-as-Leia footage (and not even CGI recreations of Fisher-as-Leia) to have her somewhat, kind of carry out that original creative plan seems like a pretty damn good idea vs. suddenly veering the ship and killing the character off because her actress died, doing who knows what sort of damage to the intended arc of the trilogy.

And I'm pretty sure if Fisher was alive, she wouldn't be like, "No way! Leia dies with me, I don't care what the plan that was laid out for Leia to me in VII-IX when I signed onto these, and even though I was super excited to see CGI younger me at the end of Rogue One!" I don't think she'd want to see another actress in the role, either, if there is some way they can use unused footage of her to round out IX.

I get the feeling they're keeping her alive just so they can continue using her character in books/comics that will come out years after this movie ends. No way are they going to limit all the comic and novel writers from using Leia with stories set after Episode 9.

But Leia won't be in X, no matter how things shake out. The movie people don't care about the comic book and novel people. And Fisher's brother and family still could've just said "No." I really don't smell anything devious in any of this.

It seems more like they are simply transitioning their annual movie from December to May which is when Disney originally wanted VII and VIII to open.

December has worked great for them and people have gotten used to and like Star Wars in the Christmas season, it's almost become a tradition at this point with only two movies.

Sure there's the potential of making more money in May but there's also more competition and it was already doing gangbusters in December for them to move it. And if they really wanted Star Wars in May then they should've just delayed Episode VII to May instead of releasing it in December.

I've not been vocal about my dislike of yearly Star Wars but the way they're handling things really seems to be all about profit in the short term and not the long term, Bob Iger is smarter than that which is why it boggles my mind that they want to keep rushing more product out.
