Disney Reportedly In Talks To Have CG Leia In ‘Episode IX’

The British programme ‘BBC Newsnight’ aired last night, with a focus on CG characters in film, and how they are produced. The show especially delved into the work done in the recently released Rogue One, which obviously led to talk of whether Carrie Fisher might reprise her role posthumously in Star Wars Episode IX, as a completely CG creation this time.

The video is only available in the UK, with the subject of Fisher emerging at the 30-minute mark. If you live outside of the UK or can’t access it for another reason, this was the reference to Disney already being in talks with Fisher’s estate:

“And if what might be regarded as unseemly haste, Disney is negotiating with the actor’s estate over her continued appearance in the franchise. If Disney gets the go-ahead, Carrie Fisher will join Peter Cushing…”

Questions of whether is it ethically right to digitally recreate an actor and the bulk of their performance in TV and film have already been raised, mostly with the release of the hugely successful Star Wars prequel, Rogue One, and one of its lead characters, Peter Cushing. Cushing died in 1994, but was animated in the 2016 film via motion capture technology and CGI. Carrie Fisher, who passed away a few weeks ago, might have a significant part to play in Episode IX (which has yet to begin filming) should they decide to take this route. Director of Episode IX, Colin Trevorrow, had previously hinted at Fisher’s Leia having a larger role, indicating massive rewrites if they don’t. There seems to be no clear answer as to how to pay proper respect to Fisher herself, as well as giving the story of the character of Leia decent closure.

It is evident that if Disney and Fisher’s estate come to some kind of agreement, the folks at ILM will have their work cut out for them in producing a likeness of the character that will equal the original performance of the Princess and General.

Ethically speaking, if her family is okay with it, I wouldn't have a problem with it. The decision should be entirely up to them.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (May 24, 2019)

I wouldn't mind a CGI Carrie Fisher for Episode 9 because the wrapping of 8 is all done, so they will have a few years to make this CGI of hers perfect. As for the other quote and news I'm hearing Luke and Rey is going to be a major part of the story for Episode 8 as we thought it would be. You gotta start off Episode 8 with Rey still looking at Luke with the Lightsaber, and we get to see what he says to her. I want a full training session with Luke and Rey, unlike Luke pretty much having to learn on the job more so than Rey. I would say though Rey beating Kylo and the rocks breaking them apart, she's further along than any young Jedi has shown in the past for sure. Before Carrie's death I thought for sure Luke would die protecting Rey versus maybe Snoke in a dual battle in Episode 8 or 9, but Mark is the last of the big three he might not die now.

A Statement Regarding New Rumors

We don’t normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address. We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess or General Leia Organa.

Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars.

'Star Wars: Episode IX' Gets a New Writer (Exclusive)

Star Wars: Episode IX is getting a rewrite.

Jack Thorne, the British scribe who wrote the upcoming Julia Roberts-Jacob Tremblay movie Wonder, has been tapped to work on the Star Wars installment that is to be directed by Colin Trevorrow.

Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly, have been working on the script, but sources say a fresh set of eyes was needed. It is unclear how extensive the rewrites will be.

Rian Johnson wrote and directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the eighth installment of the sci-fi fantasy that opens Dec. 15.

Force Awakens stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac are expected to return — but you never know who a Star Wars movie may kill off, so don’t get too comfortable — with the ninth installment eyeing a production start in January 2018.

The movie has a scheduled release date of May 24, 2019.

Thorne is the creator or co-creator of several British television shows, dramas and thrillers, including The Fades, The Cast-Offs, The Last Panthers and National Treasure.

While those don’t sound like the Star Wars wheelhouse, his writing on two more recent programs brings him closer: His Dark Materials, BBC’s adaptation of the fantasy by Philip Pullman, and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Sheep for Channel 4.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (May 24, 2019)

Evidently, according to rumors floating about in Hollywood, the rewrites are going pretty well, and actual pre-production is expected to be underway within a few weeks.

Also, it would appear that Disney is tentatively setting January 22, 2018 as the start date for principal photography based on how they have their production schedules tiered following New Year's.

I read Hamil had a lot of issues with his character and there is some stuff he wanted changed.

Also he voiced some complaints about TFA.

Wonder what's going on in SW land?

Colin Trevorrow Exits as Director of ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Colin Trevorrow is stepping down as the director of “Star Wars: Episode IX,” Disney announced on Tuesday.

“Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on ‘Star Wars: Episode IX,'” Disney said in a statement. “Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon.”

The shakeup marks the third time in two years — and the second time in three months — that Lucasfilm has parted ways with a director.

In June, Phil Lord and Chris Miller dropped out of the “Star Wars” spinoff about Han Solo due to “different creative visions” for the film. The directors had been at the wheel of the film, starring Alden Ehrenreich in the role that Harrison Ford made famous, along with Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke, for nearly two years. Two days later, Ron Howard stepped in to helm the film.

And in May of 2015, “Fantastic Four” director Josh Trank was fired from an untitled “Star Wars Story” film, believed to be about the bounty hunter Boa Fett, following rumors of behind the scenes chaos on “Four.” Trank later said he left the project because he “wanted to do something original.”

Trevorrow directed the 2015 box office hit “Jurassic World” and has a writing credit on its upcoming sequel, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” He was announced as “Episode IX” director in 2015 soon after the success of “world,”, but his recent film, “The Book of Henry,” was a critical and commercial flop.

Slated for release in 2019, “Episode IX” concludes the third trilogy of “Star Wars” movies that began with 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Rian Johnson is directing the trilogy’s middle installment, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which hits theaters Dec. 15, 2017.
This is becoming a trend. Is Kathleen Kennedy hard to work with?

Will they just throw a shitload of money at Rian Johnsonor does Ron Howard steps in again?

EDIT:

Rian Johnson Possibly Returning To Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Deadline reports Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson could be returning to helm another installment in the franchise set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

According to insiders close to the production, Johnson returning to direct Star Wars: Episode IX is a possibility at the moment however no deals have yet been made. The news of Colin Trevorrow’s exit from the project as director came earlier this evening when Lucasfilm made the announcement officially, revealing that Trevorrow’s vision for the ninth chapter of the Skywalker Saga no longer aligned with their own.

While the director shakeup could cause a delay in the production — which is currently targeting a January 2018 start for principal photography — Johnson’s return to direct Episode IX may fall in line with what the franchise had originally planned. When Johnson was first announced to direct Episode VIII, the original intention was reportedly for him to both write and direct the second and third films in the sequel trilogy, however, it later came to be that Johnson would only write and direct The Last Jedi but would craft a treatment for the closing episode of the trilogy. Only that didn’t end up being the case as Johnson himself confirmed in April that the most recent draft at the time was not based on a treatment delivered by the Episode IX director. That draft had instead been developed by Trevorrow and his Jurassic World writing partner Colin Trevorrow.

Trevorrow’s exit was reportedly over his relationship with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy becoming impossible to manage. The first sign of trouble on Episode IX came a little over a month after Kennedy had fired Christopher Miller and Phil Lord off of the Han Solo spinoff as it was revealed that screenwriter Jack Thorne had been brought on to write a new draft for Episode IX. The latest report from the trade also bolsters the possibility that Lord and Miller could be returning to direct The Flash at Warner Bros.

Star Wars: Episode IX is slated for release on May 24, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Star Wars franchise as we learn it.
So it was KK. Has the job went to her head or something?
