Carrie Fisher will NOT appear in "Star Wars: Episode IX."
The late actress's brother, Todd Fisher, had announced that she would appear in the 2019 movie, but Lucas film president Kathleen Kennedy told a group of reporters at Star Wars Celebration that she had "no idea why he said that."
Kennedy confirmed in a "Good Morning America" interview that Carrie Fisher would not reprise her iconic "The Force Awakens" character, General Leia Organa, in "Episode IX" but that she has a big role and is "absolutely phenomenal" in the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", in theaters Dec. 15.
(Fisher finished her work on the upcoming film before her death last year on Dec. 27.)
