Most of us knew Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa in the latter episodes of the Star Wars saga. Of course she was also a successful writer, script doctor, a Mom and a mental health advocate, among other things.
After the shock of her sudden passing, the folks at Disney are now facing a serious problem in how to handle her death in terms of the very lucrative Star Wars franchise.
Principal photography is reportedly completed for Episode VIII, the follow-up to The Force Wakens, and Leia was also due to be a (possibly major) part of Episode IX (which is still being written).
Disney is trying to figure out how to handle scenes that were planned for her in the upcoming Episode 8 and Episode 9.
The Hollywood Reporter says filmmakers and high-level execs are currently weighing their options with regards to how Fisher will or won't be portrayed on-screen, with Episode 9 director Colin Trevorrow set to meet with Lucasfilm on January 10.Games Radar
