Princess Leia will be in "Star Wars 9" after all . . . but not as a CGI character. CARRIE FISHER's brother Todd, and her daughter BILLIE LOURDE, gave Lucasfilm permission to use footage that was already shot.
Carrie had already finished shooting her scenes for Part 8, "The Last Jedi" . . . so maybe they're repurposing unused footage from that.
Todd says, quote, "Both of us were like, 'Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is, you don't . . . I think the people deserve to have her. She's owned by them."
