THE LAST JEDI plot will not change due to Carrie Fisher’s passing!

According to Disney CEO Bob Iger, the plot of  Star Wars Episode VIII – The Last Jedi will not be changed to accommodate the untimely death of actress Carrie Fisher in December 2016. Fisher, of course, played pop culture icon Princess Leia Organa in four of the seven main Star Wars “Saga” films.

Iger, who spoke on Thursday in Santa Monica, addressed the rumors that the plot of  The Last Jedi will need to be adjusted due to Fisher’s demise.

“When we bought Lucasfilm, we were going to make three films Episodes VIIVIII and IX. We had to deal with tragedy at the end of 2016. Carrie appears throughout VIII. We are not changing VIII to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it is in VIII,” says Iger.

Iger goes on to say that Princess Leia will not be digitally recreated in Episode IX, as was the case in Rogue One.
