We as fans can't really handle anything happening to her since the wounds from Carrie's death are still fresh. Permission or otherwise, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy has denied that Leia will appear in IX, firmly stating that Episode VIII, The Last Jedi, will be Leia Organa's final appearance.

Director Rian Johnson unveiled a teaser at the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Orlando, Florida. This will not be the case. Her likeness was last used in last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Amidst the hoopla at this weekend's Star Wars Celebration, there was a bit of therapy. The film also features returning stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong'o Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. What was your favourite role of Carries? "That was why she loved you, because you accepted and embraced all of her". "They may not be what you expect", said Ridley to knowing groans in the crowd.

Tran's character was announced at a panel for the upcoming Star Wars film that follows The Force Awakens. "My mom, like Leia, wasn't ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable". "She said, 'Promise you'll heckle mine!' I said, 'Oh, you got it, babe!' That's one promise I won't keep".

Hamill shares an image of Fisher that is so apt, as he lovingly remembered her mix of crudeness, humor, and intelligence. Whatever it is, the Last Jedi looks awesome.

His voice cracked as he read a letter he had written shortly after Fisher died in December.

Are YOU happy they're letting Leia go??

But it's her onscreen legacy that will remain for decades to come, he said.

"When I think of her, she's looking down from the celestial stratosphere with that sly smile on her face, as she lovingly extends me the middle finger", Hamill said.
