'Star Wars: The Last Jedi': Carrie Fisher is Responsible For Writing These Emotional Final Leia Quotes

The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview, confirming that there was really no alternative to working with what he had. “I think it will mean a lot for them, that ray of hope from Leia. For all of those reasons I felt really strongly that we had to let this fly.”

Holdo and Leia attempt to say the line together at the same time but struggle as they fight back tears, knowing this will probably be the last time they see each other. Leia humbly says through her tears: “You go, I’ve said it enough.” Holdo then gives the most emotional “May the force be with you, always” of the entire film.

It’s a gut-punch moment, not least because it’s the first Luke and Leia have shared onscreen since 1983’s Return of the Jedi—and now the last they ever will—or because Hamill still speaks of Fisher as “like a sister” to him in real life. Even on set the day it was filmed, Johnson tells The Daily Beast, watching the hallowed scene unfold felt momentous.“I feel so lucky that her last moments in the movie, which are at the very end of the movie, are words of hope given to Rey, given to us. Yeah. God. I wish she was here to see it.” In this, he most certainly speaks for us all.

The Last Jedi at the start of 2017, “the very first conversation” he had with Lucasfilm had to do with whether or not he’d make any adjustments or major changes to the film following her passing. The short answer to that complicated question? He had no intention of changing The Last Jedi, because Fisher’s final turn as Leia is pretty much perfect.Watch a video of Gary at the screening below.Star Wars 9 to pull off something similar. Considering a new actress isn’t brought on board (which would be a hard sell in a series that quickly became polarizing), Leia’s absence is going to have to be addressed in some way. With CGI recreation (thankfully) off the table, the most realistic option is writing Leia out of the story, having her die an offscreen death a la Spock Prime. Honestly, this would stir up the least amount of controversy, especially since there are no overt dangling narrative threads that need to be addressed. Though The Last Jedi is part of a franchise, the narrative it tells is self-contained. One can make the argument Leia was being set up as a Force teacher for the still-learning Rey, but that’s a role a Force ghost Luke Skywalker can fill if the story calls for it.As hardcore Warwick Davis, who famously played Wicket the Ewok in “Return of the Jedi,” has made cameos in “Star Wars” movies ever since.

As it turns out, Johnson has revealed that there are many scenes that did not make the cut and there is apparently a lot of good stuff, not just “people walking down hallways,” as Rian Johnson put it.

How 'The Last Jedi' Pays Tribute to Carrie Fisher Using Princess Leia's Force Powers

untimely death last December came as The Last Jedi was five months into post-production; by then, all her scenes had been filmed (it didn’t affect anything onscreen) and a major role for Leia had been planned for Episode IX, as Fisher had hoped. Those plans have since been scrapped, with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy vowing not to recreate the General digitally and to rewrite her out of the film instead.

The Last Jedi finally gives Carrie Fisher a chance to wield the Force in a literally breathtaking scene (finally warning: spoilers ahead) in which Leia is tossed into the vacuum of space after First Order rockets blow apart the bridge of her command ship, killing Admiral Ackbar and the rest of the top Resistance leadership in the process.

The Last Jedi saw Fisher’s Leia using the Force to avoid death after the First Order destroyed part of the Resistance’s ship. Sadly, she was left incapacitated for the first half of the movie, making a grand reappearance later on when she greets Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and literally zaps some sense into him after he went a bit rogue trying to save the remaining members of the Resistance. The last fans caught of Leia was in the final scene, during which she reassures Rey (Daisy Ridley) that the Resistance can be rebuilt even with a small number of Rebels on hand, because that’s all they need to rise again.

Very mild spoiler here: As part of a mission, Finn and Rose are instructed to go to Canto Bight and search for someone wearing a floral pin. That pin is worn by a craps-throwing Canto Bight gambler played by Justin Theroux, star of HBO’s “The Leftovers” and writer for films like “Tropic Thunder” and “Iron Man 2.”

The Last Jedi has been positive, there’s quite a few fans who are angry with the movie for one reason or another who were hoping for a director’s cut to satisfy their criticisms. Regardless, the Blu-ray edition of The Last Jedi will more than likely come out in the spring, following the trend of the last few movies, so we’ll have to wait and see what didn’t make it into the movie. You can about what Rian Johnson had to say regarding deleted scenes featuring Carrie Fisher courtesy of Inverse.

Of course, the scene is a bit of a diversion, as Luke isn’t physically there: he’s Force-projecting himself to Crait from Ahch-To. But it’s still undoubtedly Luke, and as we learn by film’s end, he knew he was saying goodbye — though there’s no way Mark Hamill could know that the scene also works as a goodbye to Carrie Fisher. His lines — about how we’re never really gone — are punctuated with the gravitas of her being gone. It’s Luke and Leia saying goodbye, it’s Mark and Carrie saying goodbye, and it’s us processing her death through final union of our childhood heroes.

Star Wars fans had feared that the use of, “I have a bad feeling about this,” was omitted from the Last Jedi. For example, Luke (Mark Hamill) says it in A New Hope, Leia (Carrie Fisher) says it in The Empire Strikes Back, Han (Harrison Ford) says it in Return of the Jedi. There is even a video showing its use in the franchise…

Share on Facebook Pin it Lucasfilm Leia’s Force-in-space moment is bonkers and brilliant About 30 minutes into the film, the First Order attacks the Resistance fleet after tracking them through hyperspace. A conflicted Kylo Ren, who arrives in a personalized TIE fighter, hovers near the bridge where his mother stands and considers obliterating her. He ultimately decides against it, but his fellow fighters don’t show the same restraint: they blow up the bridge, and Leia is thrown into space. (So is Admiral Ackbar, who sadly doesn’t survive.)
The Last Jedi delivered a long-awaited reunion in its final minutes as twins Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) shared a touching moment, the first screentime the characters would share since 1983’s Return of the Jedi.

According to Johnson, Dern also helped tremendously with the moment. “The real heart of that scene came from Laura. It was her saying, ‘I just feel like, from my character to Leia, but also me to Carrie, I want to express what she means to me. I want to express my gratitude.’”Episode VIII, with Han meeting his end at the hands of Kylo Ren in Force Awakens and Luke self-sacrificing during The Last Jedi‘s climax. As the credits roll, the General had been positioned as the leader of a rebuilding Rebellion, consisting of a small band of survivors looking to meet up with allies in the Outer Rim. But unless Lucasfilm is planning on recasting the role (which seems highly unlikely at this point in time), Abrams and his team will have to find another way.\nDressed in a BB8 costume, Gary’s \”ears perked up every time she [Carrie Fisher] was on screen,” according to a tweet by ABC News reporter Veronica Miracle.”Luckily we have a fantastic storyteller in J.J. Abrams who is going to figure out a way to bring it home in the end, that’s going to be satisfying, I know he’s going to,” Johnson said. “With this movie I just wanted audiences to have this performance.””Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is finally here, and much like “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One,” it is filled with celebrities who oh-so-badly wanted to be a part of a galaxy far, far away. From past “Star Wars” directors to the next King of England, these cameos come in blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shots or in the voices of bizarre alien creatures on Canto Bight, the newest Star Wars planet that looks like Galactic Monaco. Here is some to look out for when you watch the movie: Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now on theaters. Check out the trailer below.

Because what Fisher had done with the character in The Last Jedi was so stunning and complete before she passed, Johnson felt that if he to tried to alter Leia’s storyline after the fact, it would feel forced.
