    Mmm, again, I don't know if that's the way they should go. It really depends on Leia's role in IX, imo. It's strange for the family to speak out about granting the right when only a draft is done or maybe that's just a peak into the production cycle. I thought for sure they would have killed Leia in TLD since they offed Solo in TFA.

    4/10: Fisher's brother and daughter confirm they will use deleted scene footage and no cgi:

    4/15: Kathleen Kennedy confirms once-and-for-all, Carrie Fisher will not appear in Ep IX:

    It is kinda bittersweet, but I feel this is probably for the best. I'm sure the Estate had discussed this, and seemed optimistic, but Lucasfilm had to make a final decision.

    Why does that article start out with the word "Thankfully"? I'm not thankful, I'm sad...

    Bad news for Leia Organa fans; she's not going to be in Episode IX, according to Todd Fisher.

    We knew it was coming, but now it has an official release date, so I think it's safe to make an official topic to pair up with it.

    Dang, that really hurts. I hope that one day, after the film comes out, they can maybe release parts of the script that had to be removed/changed.

    Welp, a lot of people got their wish: Trevorrow is no longer directing Episode IX.

    I honestly feel kinda bad for him...but Jurassic World was mediocre, IMO, and apparently The Book of Henry is horrible, so maybe we dodged a bullet.

    I'm sorry the guy lost his job, but I doubt he's hard for cash. Jurassic World was deeply mediocre, and I've heard nothing but bad things about Book of Henry, so I'm perfectly okay with him leaving Ep IX. This is early in production, so it's hardly a Lord/Miller situation, so I don't think it'll disrupt the movie in a big way. Who should replace him? I'd be curious to see Matthew Vaughn give it a shot, though maybe Abrams is a possibility? I know there were rumours about that happening before Trevorrow came on board.

    Maybe we're better for it but that's two SW movies in a short span of time. That might put Kennedy in a bad light and give her a reputation. Yeah, I think Vaughn was rumored for IX at one time and the Man of Steel sequel.

    I'm hearing alot of suggestions. Good to great names like Vaughn to Spielberg. Honestly, I need to hear something of a synopsis on this film. Is it supposed to be darker (i.e. Revenge of the Sith) lighter more action (i.e. Return of the Jedi cause we were introduced to Ewoks in that), or something completely different in terms of tone.

    I'm pretty sure that Spielberg has ruled out the possibility on directing a Star Wars film, though he was interested in doing so at one time but scheduling conflicts prevented him from doing so.

    Can't say I'm a fan of this news. Was not a fan of TFA, not a fan of the filmmaker much anyways, so I really have to grin and bear it at this point.

    There might be some truth in the report, but we may never know the real reason why Trevorrow was fired.

    Okay, time to cue the "JJ Abrams keeps remaking older films" jokes: Obviously Episode IX is going to end with Kylo Ren betraying Snoke and tossing him off a cliff. Or Poe Dameron dies saving the spaceship from destruction, exposing his body to lethal doses of radiation, and dies in Finn's arms, and Finn yells out "SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKE!"

    I really like J.J. Abrams, so I'm very happy with the news.
