    3. Find out through dialogue during the film (so it only gets mentioned rather than any sort of onscreen anything showing either death or funeral).
    4. She dies early on either using CGI or audio only, perhaps in the opening there is a space battle and her ship goes down but we don't see any onboard shots. It would seem a bit thin IMO without any CGI or perhaps unused footage from TLJ recycled but you never know! If some combination of Poe/Rey/Finn witness it and react appropriately it might work!
    Given the response to Admiral Ackbar, a meme puppet fish man's death, I imagine they won't take out Carrie through exposition.

    I think IX will definitely start with her funeral. she will have died between films.
    they will show her death in a comic book or novel; they will show it in a different medium where they don't need to recast the role or use CGI to recreate the actress.

    1. Deal with it in the crawl. I kind of feel this is the most likely scenario.
    2. Start with a funeral (the usual space shot, tilt to planet, the funeral is being held)
    my guess: they will deal with it in the crawl AND start with the funeral.

    General Lando anyone?

    Leia's death could be the tie in graphic novel for IX. Similar to how they gave us Shattered Empire and Captain Phasma. The events would be covered and the fallout can be dealt with in the intro.

    I feel the girlz on the story group who wanted Leia to live on as the matriarch will get their way. She could be featured long enough to commit some brave act and inspire more allies to the cause.

    I'd also place a bet the planet Naboo will feature as a connection to the memory of Leia and her mother.

    Ah a novel tie in....sort of like how TFA novel allows Poe to meet Rey, and then the novel ties in so beautifully to TLJ when Poe meets Rey for the first time again.......

    I always thought it would be a neat homage to have Leia visit Naboo at some point. Which likely was done in some new Canon EU story, who knows. iI don't read anymore, too much work.
