Recently, Carrie Fisher’s brother Todd spoke to Variety regarding the death of his sister and their mother, Debbie Reynolds.
“Everyone has read a million Carrie/Debbie stories. The only problem is, there are two million Carrie/Debbie stories,” said Todd Fisher to Variety‘s Brett Lang, as Fischer promoted his book, My Girls: A Lifetime with Carrie and Debbie.
In the interview, Todd said, “It took Carrie about decade or two to embrace that she and Princess Leia were one and that her fans were kind of like an extended family.”
With that in mind, Fisher hopes his sister maintains a role in Star Wars: Episode IX.
A year after her death, Todd Fisher got to see his sister on-screen in her most iconic role. Carrie Fisher had shot most of her scenes for 2017’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” before her fatal medical emergency… Leia falls into a coma in “The Last Jedi” — something that brought back memories of the four final days that Carrie Fisher spent on a ventilator in intensive care.
“It cut close to the bone,” added Todd Fisher.
But Princess Leia’s real-world brother hopes for a triumphant return for his sister.
“In the first film, Obi-Wan says that if he dies, he’ll come back stronger than ever. I feel like that’s Carrie,” Todd told Variety. “She’ll never disappear entirely.”
Always in motion is the future… We shall see. JB
