A Lucasfilm official has shared with TMZ that Carrie Fisher had “absolutely wrapped” her part in Episode VIII.
The official said it’s too early to say how Carrie’s passing will influence future installments of the Star Wars franchise.
Deadline learned that Fisher had a “larger role” as General Leia Organa in the follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The Star Wars icon has died from a heart attack at the age of 60.
She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.
Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 23, when she went into cardiac arrest.
