Disney announced the cast of the ninth part of the Saga “Star wars.” And to the delight of all the fans, we might see Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams).
The shooting of the film “Star wars: Episode IX” will begin on August 1. Will be directed by J. J. Abrams (J. J. Abrams), who worked on the script with Chris, Terri (Chris Terrio).
One of the highlights was the announcement of Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill in the list of the cast. Luke Skywalker will be back, probably in the form of spirit, judging by the ending of “the Last Jedi”. But the appearance of Princess Leia was in question. Let me remind you, the actress Carrie Fisher died 27 December 2016, and the filmmakers didn’t want to use computer technology to its introduction into the frame.

But representatives of Disney announced that it would take materials with Carrie Fisher, taken while working on the film “Star wars. Episode VII: the force awakens”. This is done with the permission of the daughter of Carrie Fisher, in order to pay last respects to the actress.
“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding opportunities to return it to Saga in a manner that would satisfy everyone, constantly eluded us. We never were going to pick up this role another actress or use computer technology.
Nevertheless, with the support and blessing of her daughter Billie, we have found a way to honor the legacy of Carrie and the role of Leah in the ninth part of Star Wars, using footage that we shot together while working on the seventh part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” said George. John. Abrams.
Also in the ninth part of the Saga will return Billy Dee Williams, known for his role as Lando Calrissian, and, of course, Anthony Daniels (Anthony Daniels) in the role of C3PO.
