    I really hope they just kill her off it would be weird to a cg thing in episode 9

    My bet is they write her out, saying she was killed in a battle and thats when kylo goes from sith to jedi. Just my thoughts on it though

    Tarkin looked good but Leia at the end was freakish. The lighting was too bright, if they CGI her in 9 have her character in darker sets to help keep the freakish level down.

    I thought CG Tarkin and Leia looked amazing, no idea what anyone else is talking about.

    Don't know what Disney is going to do.  

    I agree that recasting is a very bad idea, CG will work but not good, writing her out will have fans question why Leia isn't in the movie since she is a big part of Star Wars (even though we know that sadly don't Carrie Fisher anymore).  

    I guess muppets are the way to go.

    killing her and/or holo-phoning it in sound fine to me. but if, for some reason, they just reeeeeally need to have her directly on screen... I'd rather a re-cast look-alike than another awkward CGI character.

    They could probably do a CG thing, but have it be like those holo-telephone things they had in the original trilogy; Basically, have them communicating across a vast distance.

    Great thing about intergalactic war: people die. While it sucks, I don't think it would be terribly hard for them write her death off-screen.
