Kennedy recalls the conversation she had with the star on her final day of filming.

While 20th Century Fox had little faith a movie called "Star Wars" would be a hit, the space opera from young filmmaker named George Lucas became a worldwide cultural phenomenon.

Ford bowed out of the series as his character was killed in 2015's The Force Awakens, which rebooted the franchise.

There are cast interviews with Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, and we get a first look at an awesome new image.

What we do know, however, is that Carrie Fisher's Leia will not appear in any capacity in IX. She could remain alive in the film, and Lucasfilm could give her a proper send-off in a novel or a comic book.

In case you weren't already sad enough about Carrie Fisher's death in late 2016, producer Kathleen Kennedy has revealed that the actress would have had a huge role in "Star Wars: Episode IX". "Because I think of her in the present tense".

Likewise, after reading Rian Johnson's script for The Last Jedi, Hamill said, "I at one point had to say to Rian, 'I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you've made for this character".

As for Carrie Fisher, she logs significantly more screen time in The Last Jedi, playing General Leia Organa. "So one thing I've tried really hard to do is keep the humor in there, to maintain the feeling, amid all the heavy operatic moments, that you're on a fun ride".

It's a shame we won't get to find out what that film would have looked like, but Fisher and her iconic character will no doubt be given a proper send off in The Last Jedi this December.

"I had just vomited", she recounted.

The new movie will be released (finally) on December 15 this year, and will apparently reveal a 'shocking truth'.

They also paid tribute to their original cast member Carrie Fisher, who played the fierce but lovely Princess Leia and who died on December 27 2016.
