Disney CEO Says Carrie Fisher Won’t Be Recreated Digitally

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed on Thursday that Carrie Fisher's death will not be addressed in the eighth Star Wars film and that she won't be recreated digitally in the future.

 “We are not changing 8 to deal with her passing,” he said during a USC tech conference. 

“Her performance remains as it was in 8. In Rogue One, we created digitally a few characters… We’re not doing that with Carrie.” 

According to Variety, Iger also shared new details about the forthcoming Han Solo: A Star Wars Story including that the film will follow Solo’s life from the age of 18 through 24 and will feature him “acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookie.” 

Iger added that the film will also explain to fans how Solo “got his name.”
