Last week, Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother, said to the press that Carrie would be in Episode IX by using unused footage from Episode VII and VIII. However, it’s not true. Kennedy explained that Todd was probably confused. Carrie Fisher will not be in Episode IX. Leia’s story will be concluded in The Last Jedi. But don’t worry, she will have a bigger role in this one than she had in The Force Awakens, we will see a lot of her in Episode 8.
