“Star Wars” fans will see a lot more Princess Leia in the upcoming film.
Todd Fisher, brother of the late Carrie Fisher, hinted to “Good Morning America” on Wednesday that the icon’s appearance in the new movie is more than just a cameo.
“There’s a lot of minutes of footage. I don’t mean just outtakes,” Todd said. “This is unused, new content that could be woven into the storyline. That’s what’s going to give everybody such a great kick. It’s going to look like it was meant to be. Like it was shot yesterday.”
Todd marked the two-year anniversary of his sister’s death on the morning show, mentioning the family’s aim to publish all of Carrie’s unfinished work.
“We’re not allowed to talk about the details of anything,” Todd added, “but we’re thrilled at what’s been done.”
“She was able to be such a shining light, and was able to create such beautiful words and great art in every discipline she put her mind or hand to,” he said. “I love it when people stand up and tell me how much they admired her and how much inspiration she was to them.”
“Star Wars Episode IX” is due out in December 2019.
