Carrie Fisher died on Tuesday at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles. The woman who gave birth to Princess Leia, or Leia Organa, in “Star Wars” left a very difficult vacuum to fill in the saga.

In July of this year, Fisher had made all of his participation as Leia Organa ready for the eighth installment of Star Wars, which now belongs to Disney since the purchase of Lucasfilm, Variety reported.
However, Leia Organa was also involved in the events of the ninth chapter of the saga he shared with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The film will begin shooting in 2018, so producers have until then to resolve their presence.
“Star Wars” is one of Hollywood’s longest-running blockbusters and its ninth chapter is expected to hit theaters in 2019. Before that, on December 15, 2017, the world will come to see the latest performance by Fisher as General Leia Organa.
The actress died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack. Although his role in Episode VIII was already resolved, we still do not know what will happen with the last installment of the story.
