    Regardless of the factors, I respect and appreciate her role in bringing Leia back to the big screen one more time.

    Since Carrie Fisher has her own thread now, let’s talk about the new cast. Who do you think they’re playing?

    As of now, my bet is the younger actress playing a student of Rey’s, an active force-user she trains as a padowan.

    I think J. J. Abrams said that it was part of her first day of filming.

    Oh, I seriously doubt that very much, sir!

    First of all, Carrie was already paid for her work on TFA and LFL owns all the cut scenes; I can’t imagine you get paid again for old work just because they put it in a new film, do you?

    And secondly, I don’t believe for a second that Billie weighed additional payment against allowing Carrie’s unused work to be used, or even worse, somehow lobbied for JJ to use the material so that she would get paid for it. This was all, and only, about the family having the final say towards JJ’s proposal, to deem whether it was a respectful treatment of Carrie Fisher’s name, appearance, and work.

    That money influenced Billie (& Co.)’s decision to allow LFL to put unused Leia scenes into Ep.IX is a ridiculously nihilistic notion, IMHO. Sorry, man.

    Of course Fisher gets paid for being in the movie, even if only old footage is used. Her being in the movie opens up a whole 'nother world of residuals which, this being Star Wars, will be quite large. In this case, it is her estate that gets paid (an estate which, IIRC, Billie Lourd is the sole beneficiary) and the actress gets credited with being in the movie.

    MOD EDITED

    I think the point trying to be made is that even if Billie Lourd/estate gets paid for Carrie being into IX, it did not factor into the decision for Billie to be on board with it and allow it. The decision was likely based on what Carrie would have wanted and how if it would be respectful of Carrie’s memory and legacy.

    And this is a ridiculously naïve statement. Sorry.

    Billie has already inherited Carrie's estate/wealth and Carrie's portion of grandma's estate/wealth. I doubt money had a whole lot to do with it. IMO.

    As far as we know, no. (That said, there are bound to be countless details not yet revealed, so who knows? On the other hand, Ep.IX will probably not have time for anything but the main arcs & plots, so there will probably not be room set aside for stuff like DJ).
