    Her daughter was in TFA. maybe they could age her up using CGI? Actually, that's a bad idea.

    I doubt they are going to shoehorn some plot device into 8 that covers her absense in 9. More likely they will just re write aspects of 9 to not include her character now, at least on screen. Which is a horrible thing to think of doing seeing how important her character is to the saga, but I don't see them being ghoulish enough to CGI her into 9 only a few years after her passing and I doubt her fellow actors would be pleased by that.

    So rewrights and shooting incoming then?

    Fisher was said to be coming back for E9 and I can see her being recast.

    But what do they do? Won't have her drive off into the sunset like Paul Walker
    Pass most of the dialogue to other characters and find some way in the plot to write her out or use a couple of scenes cut from what's been filmed.

    There's still several months before 8 is out, they could tweak that to help.

    Don't think they will kill her off but she's too important to just be an offscreen character

    I reckon they'll CG her for 9, but reduce the role significantly. Providing her family allows it, obviously, but considering her contribution to Star Wars I imagine they will.

    I just hope they got her and Luke together in ep8, would be a real shame not to see them reunited. Sadly there's a fair chance this didn't happen yet.

    As a director, I'd have no trouble whatsoever using CGI at the rate it will have advanced by Episode 9. I'd call it an homage or a tribute. I'm actually fairly certain that fellow actors will have no trouble with it or think similar of it.

    Why is it ghoulish? Swapping in a replacement is worse I think.

    Why not?

    They find Luke at the end of 7. You saying they'll spend all of 8 keeping them apart? I really doubt that.

    I reckon in 9 they'll just open by killing her off. Perhaps a CG version, if it's only used briefly in those opening scenes. They can't possibly have a CG Leia heavily featured, it'll look bobbins. It was only okay in R1 because the characters barely moved and were hardly seen. Tech isn't going to be ready for a CG character to carry a large part of the movie in just a couple of years.

    I don't get why Leia would have a big role in these new films. I know that nostalgia is a massive part of the new films, but, much like watching the Rolling Stones or Iron Maiden, all wrinkly and old, twatting around on stage pretending they're still in their 20s or 30s, it's equally hard to watch old Leia turning up and gurning out some mawkish sentimentality like she hasn't spent the last 40 years stuffing crack up her arse, or whatever it is celebrities do.

    RIP.

    Now I can't stop thinking of Episode 4, Darth Vader sweeping into the cruiser and encountering Mr T in a white dress and curled braids to his side.

    Mr T would instantly improve any film or TV show. He needs to be used more.
