“Sadly, Carrie will not be in [Episode] IX“, Kennedy told ABC News from the Star Wars Celebration, where the trailer for Episode VIII: The Last Jedi debuted.
IGN reports Tran said she had to keep her involvement in the film secret from everyone she knew, including her parents.
Johnson teased at the possibility of Rose and Finn pairing. She’s been vindicated in her belief that The First Order represent the galaxy’s biggest threat, but now has to command a fresh army composed of pilots and soldiers who have no direct experience with fighting an imperial enemy. There are not very many people like her.

If Luke or Rey end up as Gray Jedi, using philosophies of both sides of the Force, it could really mean the end of the Jedi, as suggested by the movie title. Unfortunately, Carrie passed away [at a] time when we were well underway with Episode IX in our thoughts.
Johnson unleashed the much-anticipated trailer, which answered soem questions for fans while leaving many still unanswered.

The popular 40-year-old Star Wars franchise in recent times has been criticised for a lack of recognisably female characters. “She thinks that Todd Fisher was “confused” when he made his earlier statement about his sister being in the ninth film”, said Kathleen Kennedy in her statement.
“The Last Jedi” presentation was hosted by self-professed “Star Wars” fan Josh Gad, who recently starred in Disney’s live-action “Beauty in the Beast” and played Olaf in “Frozen”.
