Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

SKELLIG Michael, the island off the coast of Kerry, features prominently in the trailer for the new Star Wars film, with fans getting their first peek of the movie last night. A voice commands her to breathe and asks her what it is that she sees.

"Light. Darkness. And balance", Rey replies.

Her hair, tinged with grey, is done up in a classic elaborate style traditional among the Skywalker ladies. However, Kennedy claimed that Fisher's brother may have been mistaken.

For those who aren't film school geeks: it could be argued that these two different shots indicate two very different trajectories for the characters/story arcs of the respective films.

Todd told New York Daily News earlier this month that he and Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, had given Disney and Lucasfilm permission to use footage from The Last Jedi in the as yet untitled Episode 9, due out in 2019. "But we've regrouped. We started over again in January, so, sadly, Carrie will not be in "Nine". "We'll see a lot of Carrie in Episode 8", Kennedy said.

The "Shampoo" star died at the age of 60, last December. In The Last Jedi, it's a test for all the characters, but specially for Finn. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend.

He even imagined how Fisher would be viewing his tribute to her. "Kennedy also confirmed that Fisher's scenes won't be recreated digitally". "As attracted as I was to her, I couldn't handle her as a girlfriend". She's too much, ' Hamill said.

"She loved you. She loved these movies. Rian, I think, had more room to kind of do his thing". "I was under her spell". She's a brilliant writer, an incredible mind.

In addition, the teaser shows numerous previous film's heroes and villains in action, including Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

But the night belonged to Hamill as he worked through his grief, almost breaking down when he read a letter he wrote shortly after her death. He spoke of how he admired her intellect, attitude and sense of humor. "[She] has the biggest new part in the movie and ironically is played by the smallest actor", said Johnson.

But it's her onscreen legacy that will remain for decades to come, he said. He added, "She's not a soldier, she's not looking to be a hero".
