Carrie Fisher given “amazing” send off in The Last Jedi

Carrie Fisher is given an “amazing” send-off in her final Star Wars film, according to fellow Star Wars star John Boyega.

The British actor said he shares “many scenes” with the late Carrie Fisher in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and that the franchise “keeps her alive”.

Her final movie credit will be Star Wars The Last Jedi, which comes out December.

Boyega, who played Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, told ABC: “It sends her off in a very amazing way.
“She is still kept alive in this franchise and that’s the beauty of it – she lives forever in a sense.”

Boyega was with his family in Nigeria when he found out about Fisher’s death, which came four days after she had a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
“It was a strange, strange feeling, I felt like everybody in the cast and obviously around the world [and] went silent for a bit.”
