Mark Hamill Talks Recasting Leia [VIDEO]

"With Han Solo (Harrison Ford) being a big part of Episode 7, and Luke Skywalker (Hamill) being the focus of Episode 8, many assumed Episode 9 would see an increased role for Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and it would be a great way for each of the original stars to shine in the new trilogy. However, with Fisher having sadly passed away in late 2016, it presents a challenge to Disney and the filmmakers making Episode 9. Do they write Leia out of the next installment? Or could they do as some fans have suggested and recast the character to give Leia a proper sendoff? No matter what Disney and Lucasfilm decide, we all know it’s not the original plan and all of us will miss seeing Carrie Fisher on screen.

With some fans talking about recasting Leia, I decided to ask Hamill about it."
