    Yes, she will be !!!

    There are tons of speculation on Leia character in the final Episode IX.

    How the hell will Leia be materialized in TROS ?
    We know they'll reuse unused footage from previous filmings, and reportedly, they will not use CGI artefact like they did for Rogue One Tarkin.
    But then ?
    Will this footage be consistent enough to have some solid scenes with our Princess?
    Will they "cheat" with some kind of (unavoidable) recast ? for example, a look-a-like filmed from back, and from time to time, some cuts to Carrie's face, letting the audience make the link? or, perhaps, the re-use of whole sequence, with a revoicing (sort of dubbing, I mean) in the case the former dialog would not match?

    Will we definitely learn she is Force Sensitive - or not?
    Will she die during that final chapter?

    Will she meet with Broom Boï?

    So much issues and questions....

    .... and so much love !
    We miss you.
    You know.
    That thread is for you.

    MSW says...
    Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, plays Leia in a flashback and for certain scenes there will be a stand in actress. So, three people are portraying Leia in TROS.

    We know she is FS since 1983.

    Furthermore there is this:

    I doubt it.

    No, but she will meet Ben!

    Leia will be the heart and soul of RoS. I have absolutely no doubt about that. It is unlikely she will have a lot of screen time, however. No, they (i.e. LFL/JJ) will have built scenes around her unused stuff, given her potent one-liners and cut her into meaningful appearances. They will have done EVERYTHING they could to make Leia/Carrie's precense in RoS as powerful as possible, and I for one think it will be awesomelly good; restrictions are good for creativity and I bet "they" have all been inspired like hellion to make the best out of what they have of Carrie, to interpret that into a great, cohesive story. I trust "them", 100%, to do the very best they can with what they have of Leia/Carrie. There will be "solid sceens", and they will be clever and manipulated as hellion! :D

    Beyond that, who knows? They will probably not recast mature-Carrie/Leia. They almost certainly will cast young actresses (i.e. BL) to play flashback-Leia, possibly even several ages' worth of the character, and these will almost definitelly be CGI'ed to carry her likeness (that or they will be shot form the back or ankle hight or whatever). So yeah, they will cheat some.

    As for Leia being "force sensitive" (an RPG term not used in the films), we already know from canon that she "has" the Froce. This was established in ESB, re-established in RotJ & TFA, and blatantly demonstrated in TLJ. So yeah... Leia is definitelly strong with the force and has used it alread. Nothing new there :)

    Broom boy? No, he was a symbol for the courage and hope that Luke's sacrifice inspired. He will not be in RoS.

    For all the ranting, I can say one thing with absolute certainty in regards to Carrie/Leia in this film: She will be LOOOOOVED! :D

    <3 Carrie <3

    I think they are gonna make this old scruffy nerf herder cry with Leia's scenes. But I'll swear it was only dirt in my eye.

    Best leading lady ever. Carrie Fisher nailed every single one of her lines in the original trilogy.

    One thing that I realised rewarching TFA these days is the "MF moment with Han", who took me directly to the "MF moment with Luke" in TLJ, that took me directly to a "MF moment with Leia" that it won't happen in TROS due to Carrie's death.
    If Carrie was alive maybe JJ would have done the same with her and the MF...what a pitty. These scenes looks so good with Han and Luke.

    Technically, anyone is force-sensitive in Star Wars. I think that the quote is just emphasizing her connection with Luke.

    Pre-ROTJ discussion with Lucas, Kasdan, and Marquand, and Kazanjian-July 13 to 17, 1981 snippet from summary from Rinzler's the Making of Return of the Jedi:

    Kasdan: "The Force was available to anyone who could hook into it?"

    Lucas: "Yes, everybody can do it."

    Actually, reading once again my opening post, I notice I made a regrettable mistake : I should not have written that above, but rather: will she finally handle a lightsaber. I apologize.
