It's Star Wars, it's the sequel to the third highest-grossing film of all time, and it will be the last big screen appearance of late actress Carrie Fisher.

The 25-year-old British actor said in an interview with Popcorn with Peter Travers for ABC News that the film will say a proper farewell to Fisher's character, Princess Leia.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.

Lucasfilm had initially planned a larger role for Fisher in Star Wars: Episode IX but the Star Wars legend's untimely passing had cut their plans short, forcing them to keep Fisher to The Last Jedi.

"It was odd. a unusual feeling", he recalled. I felt like everyone in the cast went silent for a bit after that ...

China blames U.S. for North Korea missile crisis
Traditionally, the U.S. and China have negotiated sanctions on North Korea before formally involving other council members. That underlines the need for the U.S. to act fast to stem North Korea's acquisition of expertise to achieve that.

This movie...it sends her off in a very wonderful, awesome way.

While Boyega revealed no information about the scenes he and Fisher are together in or how Fisher is going to say her good-bye to the Star Wars universe, we can speculate. "We worked together closely on this", he said.

The Finn actor said when he learned of Fisher's death last December, "It was a unusual, odd feeling".

Carrie Fisher played Leia in the original trilogy (1977 - 1983) of Star Wars films, returning for 2015's The Force Awakens.

The world may have grieved when actress, writer, and mental health advocate Carrie Fisher passed away previous year but nobody could have probably felt more pained by the loss than the Star Wars legend's family.
