  • Carrie Fisher was a whole lot more than just Princess Leia.

  • She was a fierce advocate for social causes, an important voice for destigmatizing mental

  • illness, a bang-up script doctor on many of your favorite 1990s movies, and an incredible

  • author.

  • It's not often that one person can be so talented in so many fields, but Fisher was the exception.

  • She lived more in her six decades than most of us ever will in a lifetime, and we'll never

  • know what more she had in store for us.

  • But as incredible as she was in all these different ways, she's still best known for

  • one thing above all: her role as Leia in Star Wars.

  • Her tragic passing due to a heart attack will almost certainly affect the future of Star

  • Wars.

  • As sad as we fans are, it's impossible not to ask the question that's on all our minds:

  • what effect might our loss of Carrie Fisher have on Episode VIII and Episode IX?

  • Will they change Episode VIII?

  • Shooting on director Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII actually wrapped back in July

  • 2016, and it’s been confirmed that Fisher had already finished her scenes for the 2017

  • debuting film.

  • So, however Disney decides to address Fisher's passing, they have a decent bit of footage

  • and a good chunk of time to figure it out.

  • Productions this big usually have a tight schedule, but as Rogue One showed us, it's

  • not uncommon to go back for extensive reshoots and editing in the months leading up to release.

  • If Disney decides to address Fisher's passing in a more direct way, like having General

  • Leia be written off into retirement or die heroically, there’s some time to tackle

  • that.

  • But, it might not be easy.

  • Going full CGI

  • As the computer-generated cameos in Rogue One made clear, fully CGI characters can’t

  • yet seamlessly share the screen with live actors.

  • Though the resurrection of Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin was a powerful test for

  • how far digital effects have come, the resurrected actor still looked a bit off when acting alongside

  • living actors on screen.

  • Lucasfilm knew that Tarkin had to be in Rogue One, since he's the commander of the Death

  • Star, and it'd be strange for him not to be there in some capacity.

  • Even his limited screen time was a whole lot of expensive work, so it's not really feasible

  • to try and do this for a main character in a film.

  • If they try to alter or add Leia scenes digitally, it could get tricky.

  • It’s been done before

  • If we're looking for a modern example for how Fisher's passing might be addressed on-screen,

  • we don’t need to look further than Furious 7.

  • To finish Paul Walker's character's story, the studio used a mix of CGI and human stand-ins

  • to narratively retire Walker's character and have him ride off into the sunset with his family.

  • It’s a viable concept to apply to Episode VIII, because Leia is obviously one of the

  • most iconic Star Wars characters in the franchise.

  • They'll have to address her absence at some point in the next couple of films.

  • Who leads the Resistance next?

  • Leia had become a revered Resistance leader by the beginning of The Force Awakens.

  • So in the wake of Fisher's passing, who will lead the Resistance?

  • Star Wars now has a fair share of strong, young heroes, and it's not crazy to think

  • that folks like Poe Dameron, Finn, or Rey could eventually step into that void.

  • Of course, Luke Skywalker is another obvious option, considering he'll be returning for

  • a major role in Episode VIII.

  • So, if they're looking for a steady hand to take the lead, he'd certainly be a worthy

  • successor.

  • How could this affect Luke and Kylo Ren’s arcs?

  • Any changes the producers make to Leia's story for the next two films will resonate with her relatives.

  • Luke and Leia’s sibling bond was definitely important to the script pages hidden deep

  • inside Lucasfilm.

  • And the big story for Leia and Han in The Force Awakens was the effort to turn their

  • son back from the Dark Sidewhich didn’t end so well.

  • Did Lucasfilm plan to rely on the mother-son story between Leia and Kylo Ren?

  • And if so, how does that story have to change now?

  • Could Leia’s absence change Kylo's fate before the new trilogy comes to an end?

  • Could potentially losing both parents push him to the Light?

  • Or further into the Dark?

  • Either way, Star Wars just won’t be the same without Carrie Fisher.

  • "I love you."

  • "I know."
