    I think it was explicitly stated early on that there wouldn’t be.

    I think they said they wouldn’t use a CGI Carrie. But I think that statement allows wiggle room for them to use digital tools to cut and paste elements of her performance into different environments and context. Something Lucas himself did with living actors on his most recent trilogy.

    Yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if they got a body double for a few shots where she's not facing camera or they need Leia to move in a certain way etc.

    They are definitely going to do that and cut and paste elements into new sets that are relevant to Episode 9.

    What is a mystery and interesting to me is how come J.J. Abrams could only take elements and deleted scenes from his own movie Episode 7 and nothing from The Last Jedi?

    Well, yeah I heard that too, but one thing I know is that nobody is doing anything until the day comes when they do it.

    Not saying it happened here, but just because they once said they weren’t doing it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. And again, I’m not saying what they did with Tarkin and Leia in RO which was literarily digitally recreating the character.

    They meant they are not going to do 3D fake actor Leia like in the Rogue One. No face performance created by a computer.

    Does not seem all that strange to me. TLJ was another director's film. Johnson probably would have given Abrams permission to use pulls or negotiated some sort of deal but maybe Abrams decided he didn't want to go that route.

    That's how I took the statement too.


    Maybe it's as simple as they're stuck with a certain hair style or certain kinds of deleted scenes to choose from.

    I think Todd Fisher said something at some other point about them also taking footage from The Last Jedi, but I'm not sure where I read that so can't cite it. In any case, even if they did take footage from both movies, she was in supporting roles in both of them and they were not designed to feature her in a leading capacity, so there is an inherent limit to how much footage they had available. Given that, I'm surprised and pleased that her role is as big as he says it is.

    Yep, it could be as simple as there was much useful delete Fisher stuff from TLJ.

    I bet that Rian Johnson does not own one sec of the movie or anything else. They don't need permission or a deal from Johnson. They own everything. :)

    And even if they did need permission, I’m sure he wouldn’t say no.

    So any truth to these rumors I’ve been seeing of disasterous test screenings? Or just internet BS? (I find it kind of dubious they would do test screenings of Star Wars movies)

    I wouldn't think they would want a chance of spoilers getting out more than a month before the movie is released.

    Was this "news" posted by a You Tuber named RianJohnsonKathyKennedyRapedMyChildhood or was it DisneyHasMurderedStarWars? :)

    I'm with you, I can't believe anyone outside of the production and some of J.J's closest friends or collaborators have seen the movie.

    They have never test screened any of the other films. Why would they start now? It doesn't matter how terrible the film may or may not be. It is going to make money. Who knows whether it will make as much as Disney would like, but it is still going to make them money. Most people think the prequels were garbage, but none of them lost money.

    only thing I can think of is that the backlash against TLJ has got them thinking “we better make sure all audiences will like this one”. I still find it highly unlikely they test screened this movie for anyone though.

    No way any test screenings were held.

    Total internet fanboy wet dream bullshit.

    No

    The source of this rumor was the same YouTuber who insists that Marvel is going to fire Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

    No wonder I couldn’t find any tin foil at the supermarket earlier. It appears that fellow had bought it all for hatmaking.
