With the passing of Carrie Fisher, what direction do you guys think the creative minds will go with Princess Leia? kill her off in episode 8? not include her visually? or include her with special effects similar to Tarkin or young Leia in Rogue One? leave a comment if you have any other ideas.

Pretty sure she finished filming so not a lot. Probably a novel or a comic later in where she dies heroically after episode 8.

Have her die off-screen or use their CGI magic.

Technically, we don't know that Leia survives episode 8 anyway. She might have died as part of episode 8's story and Carrie Fisher's real life passing will have no impact on episode 9.

From the information I read she had finished Star Wars 8 and if they had her scheduled for Star Wars 9 they could go back in and reedit the end of Star Wars 8 and have her die as I doubt many fans will accept anyone else doing Princess Leia. That character was Carrie Fisher, in my opinion.

It was confirmed she finished filming episode 8 however I am curious what happens in that movie... I'm thinking they weren't going to kill of another original main character but now it may be their best option. This is very unfortunate in many ways.

I hope you are joking, because that would be so, truly disrespectful! Not to mention the age difference. I don't see them recasting anyone else, it is my hope, that they kill Leia off, as that is their only option.

Chances are they will rework the end of E8 probably using some CGI so that Leia Organa Solo will not be in E9; whatever role she was going to fill will be filled by another character.

My guess is that assuming she survives episode 8 is that she will not be seen on screen but will die in an attack on a ship she is on by the first order. This would set up a redemption angle for Kylo Ren since his anger seemed to be directed towards Han not his mother. Just a guess, but if we hear about the ending of episode 8 being reworked in the next couple of months I think we will know. At the very least I am guessing the script for episode 9 will have to be reworked.
