Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – Carrie Fisher’s death will not result to any changes in the plot of the new “Star Wars” movie and reports said the producers will not digitally recreate the late actress.

The new movie, called “The Last Jedi,” will also not modify the scenes where Fisher was included. She died halfway through the filming of the flick but was able to finish Episode VII. Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement, “She’s in [Episode] VIII, and we’re not changing VIII to deal with her passing. Her performance, which we’ve been really pleased with, remains as it was.” The movie was supposed to have her also in episodes VIII and IX.

Fisher died in December when she was in a flight from London to Los Angeles. She was 60 years old and suffered from a heart attack.

In her role in the hugely successful “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Fisher was digitally created. Many fans believed the same would be done for “The Last Jedi.” Iger cleared that would not be the case.

Aside from that, Iger revealed details of the new “Star Wars” Han Solo flick. Iger said, "That picks up Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through to when he was 24. There are a few things that happen that are significant in Han Solo's life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. But you’ll also discover how he got his name.”

Alden Ehrenreich will be playing the role of the younger Han Solo. In the past, Han Solo was played by Harrison Ford.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is set to appear this Dec. 15.
