Carrie Fishers General Leia to be bigger role in Star Wars Epidode VIII


The world is still in morn after feeling the blow of losing such a great movie icon as Carrie Fisher. It was announced that her role as General Leia in the next Star Wars movie Episode VIII will be more predominant that that in Rogue One.

For Episode VIII, Leia had a larger role, we’re told, and her daughter Billie Lourd also is in that film as well as in Force Awakens. How Lucasfilm will deal with the loss of one of the most beloved female characters in any franchise is not known however, and the company is remaining mum”

 Well it sounds like we get to give her a proper send off with this next Star Wars chapter, though the theater may not have a dry eye in the building during the showing of Episode VIII. Can’t help but wonder what Lucasfilm will do without such a huge icon as Miss Fisher herself. Though there may be time to figure this out before the next movie, I’m afraid the Star Wars and Nerd world will not be the same without her.
