I'd expect they will do something similar to Tarkin for Ep9 to have her character killed off. They only need someone with same build and close in voice tone to make it work with a partial CGI face.

It will be interesting to see what they do now.

I think if Leia wasn't originally scripted to die in 8 they should try to work in a self-sacrifice death for her using what they currently have, it would be true to the character and much better than having her die off-screen. Would also be great if they could do it with little or no CGI, but that depends entirely on what they have to work with.

Whatever they do, I really hope they address it in 8 instead of leaving us with that big question mark until 9 comes out in 3 years.

I expect they'll do some CGI magic and use a stand in since they did that for Tarkin and did a very good job.

I can see them killing her off either at the end of part eight or the beginning of nine where CGI comes into play, unless of course Fisher's character already took the Ford route with a heroic death in the next installment. There's not a chance in hell the character will be recast.

good points everyone. I personally can't see them having her die off screen, she's just way too important of a character for that to be the case imo.

Well, Disney may have an extra $50 mil to put towards reshoots and/or CGI if they want - they apparently had the foresight to take out a rather substantial insurance policy on Ms. Fisher's life in the event she was unable to complete filming the new trilogy.

Certainly interesting.

So from the outside looking in, it appears Fisher was slated to be cast in part nine. Which, if that's the case, I definitely see her being killed off early on, in the final installment. Financially it makes more sense to do what little CGI is needed in part nine v having to reshoot parts of eight, in addition to adding the CGI. Either that or Disney is trying to throw off fan theories pertaining to the story line, if so, that's pretty hard core. Of course this is nothing more than a hypothesis, so we'll see.

They should just kill the character off honestly.
