Really curious how this is going to pan out.. did they plan to kill her off in Episode 8?

If they did: What do you do now? Do you kill her after she already died? Do you somehow re-work it so she just goes off into a spaceship never to be seen again? Leave it ambiguous? Seems a little harsh to kill her on screen at this point, but maybe a year from now we'll feel different. CGI?

If they didn't: What do you do now? She won't be available for Episode 9. Do you kill her off-screen between movies? Fumble some sort of excuse why we never see her again? Write-in her death in Episode 8 last minute (see issues above)? CGI?

Pull a Fast and Furious 7? Honestly, I'd prefer they stick to whatever is already written. If they killed her off in VIII, do you have any idea how heavy and heartbreaking that scene will be?

Anyway, big bummer she died, but we all do.

Don't think they were planning to kill her off. EW reported all of her scenes for Episode VIII had been finished, which might mean she had only a small part in this movie. Who knows what was planned for Episode IX, they will have to figure out how to kill her off without her being there, either by book or short clip in one of the movies

I would imagine an off-screen death, or have her part in XI be small and handled with a CGIed stand-in, akin to how they handled the unfinished portions of Paul Walker's scenes.

Yeah, I guess they could have the crawl in 9 say she passed away or was killed, and have the opening to 9 be her funeral or something.

I kind of figured they'd be phasing out the OT cast members one at a time to let the new talent shine.

Indeed. They're too old to carry the films, and I largely like how they handled them in VII. They don't have to kill them all off like Han, though.

It'd be too painfully obvious if they offed them one by one every other film.

I think Luke should stick around for at least 9. Chewie can remain around for a while, being Alien and all.

Leia didn't do much at all in 7, so I don't imagine they'd have a huge role for her in 8.. but I guess you never know.

Hmm. I'd think Super Bowl, but it's on FOX this year, and Disney/ABC are fuckers.. so I'm not sure.

Guessing it was smart of them not to overshadow themselves with a trailer in front of Rogue One.

I'm guessing we'll get something around the time the Rogue One hype/theater attendance goes down. If they're really smart, they'll throw the trailer onto the screenings of Rogue One first. Get butts in seats again!

What if they simply didn't mention her in IX? It's not like she had a big part in 7, and I'm sure she's not more than a bit part in 8. If she simply got ignored (because let's face it, even die-hard fans aren't clamoring for more Leia at this point), would anyone even notice?

Aside from that, her spaceship can get blown up, and Luke can stagger around feeling "a disturbance". Easy enough. No CGI necessary.

If they REALLY wanted to have her in 9, they probably were smart enough to pre-record some extra lines just in case. This wasn't Paul Walker. Fisher was a hard-living time-bomb, and while not expected, this isn't exactly a major surprise to anyone.

I thought I wanted more Leia and Han. I thought I wanted more Indiana Jones. But seeing these childhood heroes as old sacks of crap is depressing. It only serves to remind me how fucking old I am, EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE of why I watch these movies in the first place. Let the old characters fade away quietly.

Yeah, other than the stupid Rathgar scene, I liked Han in TFA. I'm also glad they off'd him.

Leia.. I don't know. Feels like she should have had more to do since she's the damn MOM OF THE EVIL BAD GUY.. but they didn't, so who knows. Don't know if I would have wanted more.

Seems like they need to tie up the Kylo & Mom connection at some point in EP8 though.

He can get in his TIE Advanced Mk II and blow up her consular ship, babbling about "completing the circle" and "grandfather's legacy" or "Two down, one to go" or some shit.

They don't need another bad CGI Leia making an emotional speech, "Son, don't smoke three cartons-a-day like your old mom... and by the way, you're adopted. Your real mom is a Twilek that looks like Lena Dunham."

Apparently she has a larger role in 8..

Star Wars: Leia Has a 'Larger Role' in Episode VIII - CBR

Also says she was planning to return for 9, but who knows, they tend to do say that to not spoil the fact that someone dies.

It'll be on one of the Marvel movies. I'm almost certain of it. I mean, there's THREE next year! It'll probably be connected to GotG 2 in May.

Between cgi & other old footage. They can just blow her up in a ship (like how I wanted to see Padme's death)

Honestly this really sucks
