General Organa will be a part of the final Skywalker Saga 'Star Wars' movie after all.
Disney and Lucasfilm this weekend announced their full casting line-up for the final instalment in the Skywalker Saga, 'Star Wars: Episode IX'. One of the biggest surprises for fans was that the late great Carrie Fisher was listed amongst those set to appear, reprising her role of General Organa despite not filming a single scene for the movie.

Whilst Disney once said they wouldn't be bringing Fisher back for the final film, it would appear that talks with her estate and in particular, her daughter Billie Lourd led to an agreement that she should be a part of the epic series' conclusion.
The ‘Star Wars’ actress passed away on December 27, 2016.
Billie Lourd has paid tribute to her mom Carrie Fisher on the first anniversary of her death in the most magical way possible.
The actress, 25, travelled to Norway to see the Northern Lights, something her mother Carrie had always dreamed of doing with her.

Hamill had declared in an interview, “he’s not my Luke Skywalker.”
Mark Hamill has admitted he regrets publicly voicing his criticism of ‘The Last Jedi’ and director Rian Johnson.
During the press tour for the film earlier this month, Hamill gave a few choice quotes about the direction of his character in the new movie, including saying he was “not my Luke Skywalker.”

After the thunderous reception for J.J. Abrams' Episode VII: The Force Awakens two years ago, writer-director Rian Johnson had a lot to live up to with Episode VIII. And he delivers more than anyone expected: a lucid, entertaining film that operates on four distinct planes, deepens all of its characters, enriches the mythology and constantly surprises the audience with twists and turns. It's a little overwhelming, a nonstop two and a half hours of action and intensity without any time to catch your breath. But there's also a steady stream of sharp humour to help keep things in perspective.
The story picks up straight away, as the First Order led by Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) presses its advantage to wipe out the rebellion for good. Snoke is playing his apprentice Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) off against General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) for maximum effect as they launch an attack. Rebel General Leia (Carrie Fisher) is trying to protect her scrappy army, with pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) trying against the odds to find a way to get them to safety. He sends rebel hero Finn (John Boyega) and mechanic Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) on a mission to track down a hacker who can give them a chance against the First Order. Meanwhile, Rey (Daisy Ridley) has tracked down Leia's brother, jaded Jedi master Luke (Mark Hamill), who is trying to teach her hard truths about the Force.
Each of these characters finds a surprising connection to others, derailing plans and sending each person on an unexpected journey. The way Johnson orchestrates all of this is remarkable because it's both coherent and compelling. And the actors beautifully inhabit the characters, offering telling glimpses beneath the surface. Driver has the strongest role, grappling with three other main characters to understand his destiny. It's dark and complex, and unnervingly moving. Ridley and Hamill also have powerfully gripping moments, while Isaac gets to make good on his scallywag promise in the previous film. And in her final role, the late Fisher brings a wonderfully knowing, sassy edge to Leia.

She's one of a handful of posthumous nominations this year.
Hidden amongst all the main Grammy nominations is a nod to the late 'Star Wars' star Carrie Fisher, who could be looking at her first music award for her spoken word album 'The Princess Diarist'. She's not the only posthumous nomination either, as at least three other late celebraties are named in other categories.

Gone but never forgotten, Carrie Fisher - who died at the age of 60 from a cardiac arrest last year - released her first memoir the month before her death entitled 'The Princess Diarist', exploring her time playing Princess Leia on the 'Star Wars' series and even detailing her alleged affair with co-star Harrison Ford. It was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Related Work, but is now looking at Best Spoken Word Album at the 2018 Grammys.

In a new interview for GQ, Ford was drawn for a few words on the bombshell that Fisher dropped when she disclosed their affair on the set of Star Wars in 1977.
Back in 2016, Fisher dropped a bombshell on Star Wars fans when she revealed in her memoir, The Princess Diarist, that she and Ford had an affair while on the set of the film that started the franchise, A New Hope, in 1977. At the time, Fisher was 19 and Ford was 33, and still married to his first wife Mary Marquardt.
“It was strange. For me,” the 75 year old actor told GQ in an in-depth interview for its cover feature, published this week.

Boyega told ABC that Princess Leia's final appearance in Star Wars is marked properly in 'The Last Jedi'.
The young London-born actor, who plays Finn, revealed to American broadcaster ABC in a new interview this week that he shares “many scenes” with Fisher in the upcoming eighth instalment of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi, and that the franchise “keeps her alive”.
Fisher died suddenly in December 2016 at the age of 60, and her final big-screen performance will come in The Last Jedi when it is released in cinemas at the end of this year. She had already completed filming her role in the movie at the time of her death, meaning no digital trickery has had to be used, but Leia will have no part in the ninth and final film set for 2019, and Boyega was asked about her final appearances and how the production team had treated it.
The late actress will go down in history as one of Disney's greats.
The late Carrie Fisher, along with 'Star Wars' co-star Mark Hamill, has been honoured as a Disney Legend in a special ceremony at this year's D23 Expo. Completing work as General Leia in upcoming 'Star Wars' flick, 'The Last Jedi', Fisher's fans still have some on screen action from the incredible talent to look forward to, much of which was teased at the annual event this weekend. You can see footage taken from the Expo below:
Tributes came for Fisher from a variety of big names at the D23 Expo in California, with Disney CEO Robert Iger telling a bustling audience: "Carrie has been an iconic part of the Star Wars franchise as you saw from the very beginning, and she will always hold a very special place in our hearts, and the hearts of fans around the world. We all miss her talent, her wit, and her friendship."

The 2017 Emmy's Show What's Hot and What's Not
It was a successful day for Westworld and Saturday Night Live as both received 22 nominations each as they led the way at the 2017 Emmys. The popular NBC late-night sketch and comedy programme achieved more nods than it had ever previously done with the huge figure.
The two programmes could not be any more different in style or tone, but it will be the two programmes which lead the way upon the awards in September; Westworld has just finished its huge budget first series, whereas Saturday Night Live has now moved onto a whopping 231 nominations - breaking its own record for most nominations ever at the awards.
