Carrie Fisher had finished filming Star Wars: Episode VIII before her death


Posted On Dec 28 2016 by

Just one year ago, Carrie Fisher returned to the franchise that made her career with an appearance in   Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Lucasfilm   recently resurrected   Peter Cushing using CGI for   Rogue One, which (spoiler)   even featured a digitally recreated 19-year-old Fisher as a young Leia.)

Fisher had also recently finished work on a number of television projects. Filming for   the Rian Johnson-directed sequel actually wrapped back in July, and   Deadline reports that Fisher had completed her contributions well before   her tragic   death. Her role as General Organa   is said to be greatly expanded in Episode VIII, though how so is obviously a tightly guarded   Lucasfilm secret. Most recently, she’d wrapped production on season three of Catastrophe, the Amazon comedy series in which she had a recurring role as Rob Delaney’s mother. She was expected to return for   Episode IX, to be helmed by   Colin Trevorrow, and it’s unknown how her passing may affect that film. She also did voice-acting for two upcoming episodes of Family Guy, reprising her role as Angela, the supervisor at the brewery where Peter Griffin works. Prior to her   death on Tuesday,   she had the chance to once more reprise her   iconic character, General Leia Organa, for the upcoming   Star Wars: Episode VIII, having completed   her work on the film before   suffering a fatal   heart attack   drowning in moonlight, strangled by her own bra. Currently without air dates, the   episodes will bring the tally of Fisher’s appearances on the Fox cartoon to 22. The actress was flying from the show’s London set back to Los Angeles when she suffered her heart attack.
