 Apparently, before her death, Carrie had already finished shooting her scenes for eight and as that time, the scripts for nine were not ready. Kennedy said Todd Fisher must have been “confused” when he earlier stated that  footage of late Carrie  Fisher’s Leia will be put into the last installment of the franchise.
