According to the New York Daily News’ exclusive report, at the TCM Film Festival in Los Angeles, Todd Fisher, Carrie's brother, has said that Disney wants to bring back Princess Leia. Todd, and Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, have given Disney permission to use "recent footage" for "Episode IX"
Here are his exact quotes:
“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t,” Fisher said. “She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue.”
