Carrie Fisher will not appear in Star Wars Episode 9

17 April 2017

"I remember during Empire we were split up storywise; it was a hard film to shoot and there was a lot of tension on the set". I'm not the only part in that equation, but I think the people deserve to have her. Hamill continued to open up to the crowd about his grief over the loss of his dear friend, saying "I have been trying to deal with this". While speaking with the New York Daily News, Todd said, "Both of us were like, 'Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't".

'When I think of her, she's looking down from the celestial stratosphere with those big brown eyes, that sly smile on her face, as she lovingly extends me the middle finger, ' Hamill said. Carrie, who brought to life Princess Leia from the "Star Wars" franchise, died at the age of 60 after reportedly suffering from heart attack.

Fisher will not be recreated digitally for the movie, meaning Leia's final Star Wars appearance will be in The Last Jedi. "As attracted as I was to her, I couldn't handle her as a girlfriend".

Hamill recounted meeting her for the first time in London and told stories of visiting with Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds and attending lavish parties in Hollywood.

World´s oldest person, Emma Morano, dies at 117
The oldest person in the world - who was also the last person alive that had been born in the 19th century - has died in Italy. In addition to enjoying the single life, Morano didn't fuss with keeping a complicated diet to lengthen her time on earth.

Hamill also mused on the roles Fisher might have tackled in the future - post-Star Wars. There's the five stages of grief, and just when I think I've gotten to acceptance, I bounce back to anger, because I'm mad. They went years without seeing each other, but reuniting for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi allowed them to "reset" their friendship.

Hamill led an hour-long tribute to Fisher on Friday evening at the event. She had, at that stage, finished filming all her scenes for The Last Jedi.

'Wait until you see her in 'The Last Jedi, ' ' Hamill added. "She's owned by them", he told the press as per Deadline.

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