While the internet may be a buzz over the new Star Wars trailer, another video dropped that will get you right in the feels. Debuting on YouTube, the official Star Wars account dropped a touching Carrie Fisher tribute highlighting her iconic role as Princess Leia.
For those of you living under a rock, or have not been on this planet for the past six months, Carrie Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016, from complications resulting from a heart attack a few days prior. In the time since her death, rumors around how Lucasfilm would portray Leia in Episode IX have been rampant. Since Rogue One, the idea that Lucasfilm would bring Leia back in CGI form kept popping up. However, the company quickly dashed that rumor. Instead, the company will be using actual footage of the late Fisher. The question now is, just how much footage is there of General Organa. She was supposed to have a bigger role in the last two movies, but sadly, that may no longer be the case.
We have the Carrie Fisher tribute for you below and it’s a touching tribute to a lady who wore many hats. It’s a quick five minutes but it highlights Fisher’s role as Leia and the impact she had on her costars.
We’re about seven months away from the Last Jedi. While details of the new episode have been sparse, in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer we see Rey training under the tutelage of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. Meanwhile, the First Order is ramping up its goals to take down the resistance. With that, we’ll have to patiently wait to see how it all plays out. If the movie is anything like The Empire Strikes Back, it will certainly be darker in nature. But again, we’ll have to wait and see.
