Eight months on, it still hurts whenever I think of Carrie Fisher and how much she meant to a whole generation of Star Wars fans. We know that she’ll still appear in The Last Jedi, but other than that, no one really knows anything about any of her scenes.

But while doing promotion for his latest movie Detroit, breakout star John Boyega told The Hollywood Reporter that the movie will do justice to our beloved princess and general:

“This movie, it sends her off in an amazing, amazing way…And she is still kept alive in this franchise. That’s the beauty of it: She lives forever in a sense.” 

Boyega continued, saying that when he heard about Fisher’s passing last year, it affected everyone in the cast. He also let slip that General Organa and Finn have multiple scenes together in The Last Jedi, so that’s definitely something to look forward to as we start the countdown to the release of Episode VIII.
