Not a lot of information is known about Star Wars: Episode IX yet other than a rumor that the film takes place one year after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Well now we have some small how details on how much footage we should expect to see from the late Carrie Fisher.

Carrie Fisher sadly died in late 2016 preventing her from filming the rest of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. She was supposed to have a big part in Star Wars: Episode IX, but obviously those plans couldn't come into fruition.

Todd Fisher (Carrie Fisher's brother) has now commented on how much footage his sister has in Star Wars: Episode IX. You can read his statement below as revealed by ABC News.

"There's a lot of minutes of footage. I don't mean just outtakes. This is unused, new content that could be woven into the storyline. That's what's going to give everybody such a great kick. It's going to look like it was meant to be. Like it was shot yesterday."

Thankfully lots of footage shot from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi can still be used in Star Wars: Episode IX. It sounds like it will look seamless on how they used the footage for the new movie.

Not a lot of info has been shared about the movie so far, but we should hear more details sometime later this year. Star Wars: Episode IX releases in North America on December 20th, 2019.
